  1. Admin. please I need a clarification... It was pointed out that the scholarship is for first year students, and that eligible applicants must have gained admission during the 2013/2014 academic session... present first year students gained admission during the 2014/2015 academic session. those that gained admission during 2013/2014 session should be their second year now... please, I really need to be clarified. Thanks.

  2. Good observation. You can proceed with your application as long as you meet every other eligibility requirement. The session 'should not' be a deterrent.

  3. Please,I'm a little confused here as well. One of the requirements stated that the applicants most have a grade point of 3.5. Well,the thing is..I haven't seen all of my results because my school is quite slow in the compilation of results. I would appreciate if a fast and an honest suggestion is made,as I had few days to the deadline.
