Definitely not as competitive as open scholarship since it is more restrictive and less prestigious.

if they send you a rejection letter, does it apply for all the different types of scholarships or just the open one?

best that you can prepare for it is to get a good night's sleep, cause it's going to be pretty taxing. the whole test is similar to psc's psych test, so if you've done it before it'll be good to try and remember it.

i went through the first round last year but i can't remember what the essay question was like, sorry.

anyone else shortlisted for this year?
