If This Is For You
TIPS FOR YOU !!
The scholarship decision will be based on the overall supportive documentation submitted, including Resume, Academic Transcript, Official Proficiency Standard Exam, Personal Profile, and all other necessary application materials. The purpose of these materials is to help the Admission Committee rightly acknowledge the most suitable candidates.
Commonly, it is a misunderstanding that an applicant ONLY with a high Language Proficiency Test result will have a greater chance of granting a scholarship. This is because TOEFL, SAT, ACT, SSAT, IELTS scores are just one of the criteria for overall measurement. However, applicants with higher Language Proficiency Exam scores and Outstanding talents will enjoy higher priority in the pool of scholarship considerations.
