I am wondering which one is correct: not yet finished or not finished yet

Please see the following context:

Please send the list if the jobs that you have not finished yet.

    Both sound ok to me, but not yet finished sounds better.

    Better still in my opinion is: Please send the list of jobs you are yet to finish.

    Yet to finish?

    This is new to me! Can you explain / refer me to some site / examples to read.

    thanks

    I am yet to finish reading this book.

    Have you completed your homework?
    No, I am yet to finish that.

    My sister is yet to finish cooking.

    Actually, "have + yet to + verb" is the form.
    "I have yet to finish that."
    I do not believe [be+ yet to + verb is a standard form.
    I have never heard this form used, anyway.

    1 Please send the list of the jobs (that) you have not yet finished. :tick:

    2 Please send the list of the jobs (that) you have not finished yet. :tick: It sounds to me a little more informal than (1).

    3 Please send the list of the jobs (that) you have yet to finish. :tick: Correct, but formal/old-fashioned.

    4 Please send the list of the jobs (that) you are yet to finish. :thumbsdown: This is extremely old-fashioned usage.
