i think the juniors are so going to thank you for coming up with this template, haha!

Scholarship awarded (if applicable): Nanyang Scholarship
University and Course: NTU Communication Studies
Date and method of notification(s) of award: 7th May 2008, email before snail mail
School: Hwa Chong Institution
A-level/Polytechnic grades: AAAA (H2 Bio Chem Maths Econs) and B (GP)
CCAs and CIP (include leadership positions and achievements i.e. olympiads): Interact Club Executive Committee; 10m Air Pistol Girls' School Team; Some competitions that i took part in secondary school and my team managed to make it into the finals
Awards (i.e. MOE Pre-University Scholarship, NYAA): HSK Chinese Bridge Scholarship. the rest yada yada.. not very significant.

Date of shortlisting and interview: shortlisted on 24th April 2008 ; interviewed on April 29th 2008
How did your interview go?: Good. I wasnt stressed up and at least i was coherent and thought i left a good impression. The fact that not-too-difficult questions were asked helped too.
Why do you think you were successful? i think grades played a big part. interview-wise, my coherence? sincerity?
Any advice/comments: psyche yourself up before the interview. maybe it's wise to be a bit prepared too. be clear-headed and talk sensibly.

Scholarship awarded (if applicable): NUS Business School Dean's scholarship
University and Course: NUS business school
Date and method of notification(s) of award: 21 May, call then email then post
School: NJC
A-level/Polytechnic grades: AAAAA B Merit (H2 Math, H2 Physics, H2 Chem, H1 Econs, GP, PW, H3 research)
CCAs and CIP (include leadership positions and achievements i.e. olympiads): Gavel Club (Vice President) and Indian Dance (SYF Gold with Honours and Special Mention)
Awards (i.e. MOE Pre-University Scholarship, NYAA): ASEAN scholarship for 4 years

Date of shortlisting and interview: Shortlisted 20 March, Interview 28 March
How did your interview go?: Pretty well I think, it was more like a conversation because the interviewers (two of them) are really friendly. They mainly asked me questions about myself, my leadership in JC, career aspirations, dreams and how I respond to difficult situations...
Why do you think you were successful? I think I can really talk a lot during the interview because I just kept talking. I believe I am confident as well.
Any advice/comments:
If you are in a situation that you don't know how to answer a question, just invent something on the spot rather than keep quiet. They are more interested in how you respond to their questions and your way of thinking rather than the answer itself.
