    I do not have up to five(5)distinctions and have already registered for the mobil scholarship award scheme.do i still stand a chance of getting the scholarship? really love this site.thanks alot for the scholarship award updates

  2. ikenna says

    I wouldn't categorically state that you do or do not stand a chance. If The scholarship eligibility required that you have up to five distinctions, you would stand a chance if there are little or no applicants with such results. However, scholarship employers are often strict with their rules.

  4. Anezchuny says

  5. Ikenna says

    @Anezchuny It may be a bit difficult to come across a scholarship specifically for your field of study, but you can apply for scholarships that cover general fields.
    I'm not aware of such mathematics competition for now.
