Online Scholarship Application

Please note that the ACTUAL RESULTS for student with IGCSE qualification that we refer to is the Statement of Results or the final Certificate issued by the following examination board:

  • Cambridge Assessment International Examination (CAIE)
  • AQA
  • Pearson

Therefore, please note that online/statement of results stated as ‘Provisional Results Information’ will NOT be accepted for scholarship application.

We understand that some schools will only be receiving the Statement of Results/Certificate 2-3 months later. Your respective school will contact you to collect the Statement of Results/Certificate when it is ready. That is fine as our deadline policy is ‘2 weeks from the release of the actual results’.

Therefore, you have 2 weeks from the time you receive the Statement of Results/Certificate to submit your scholarship application to Scholarship Unit.
