Hi! heh, I had disappeared for a couple of months to hibernate and to resurface briefly last night for my IB results. Yup! I'm in! met conditional offers

Hoping, I have a pdf of last year's application form. I'm trying to post it on here, see how it goes!

Edit: argh. File too big. it's 50 kb - -.
basically it's a one page application form. has the usual personal info blanks, a space to incl details of education.
then, it has a tick box to show the college you have applied to.
the others section:
-how did you learn of this scholarship?
-have you applied or do you intend to apply for any other scholarships or forms of financial assistance in relation to your proposed undergraduate studies? If so, please list the names of the schemes and results of your applications, if known.

Yep! I'm going there this October. It was very straightforward in terms of applying before receiving my grades. Instead of using actual IB grades, I used 'predicted grades' - these grades were based on my end of year exam performance. Incidentally, these were the same set I submitted to UCAS.
I think the majority of applicants only have predicted grades when they apply so this was not unexpected for the interviewers.
They do place more emphasis, however, on your O level grades if you're using these.

My scholarship is worth 3 years- it covers tuition fees, college fees and includes an 8000 pound annual stipend plus airfare (i think its only once though).
The final interview is held in Hong Kong at their headquarters (it's really cool). They pay for nearly everything though (food...including the minibar, airfare, hotel) so it's like a mini holiday. Jardine happens to own the mandarin hotel chain, so the hotel they allocated us was nice. You get invited to that if you pass the preliminary rounds held in your country. I think they only invite 12 candidates out of 300 applicants this year. In the end, only 6 get the scholarship.
This year, I think 3 singaporeans got the scholarship :P. Two of them happen to be post NS, so yea, males do get the scholarship.
Hi Swiffy,

Thanks for your sharing.
I am just notified the final interview by the Jardine foundation in end Apr. Would like to know know about the final interview process and tips if possible?
Thanks!!
