    Two days until we get a decision from Aberdeen. I have a good academic background but I have changed my field. I did my Bachelors in Communication Systems Engineering but have applied for Ms in Information Technology. Can this effect my selection??

    I believe there is a field in the agency input that asks if an unconditional offer has been granted.

    You should endeavour to fulfil the requirements in your conditional offer.
    Thank you for your reply the thing now is, i am now in last semester, and will be graduate soon in oct. I will only get my official transcript on august/sept. However, my grade now is eligible and pass for unconditional offer. Just only i cant provide the official trancript for the university :'(

    On the contrary , it should be a problem. The CSC only awards scholarship for Unconditional offer holders. You should try to send those remaining documents asap. And success in your en-devours.
    I disagree...many conditonal offer holders are recepient of CSC. Be guided please.

    academic merit and home country benefits and reference are yardstick for nomination BUT BUT BUT believe in God and yourself and pray to whatever you believe in. Only God makes the unqualified qualified.

    Are references really used as a criterion for selection??If so why is there no deadline for references??
    CSC attaches grave importance to references..all thesame obey all rules and guidelines... selection criteria for one university may be different from another.

    Also waiting guys.Applied to Beds,Sheffield Hallam,Leeds Beckett,Aberdeen,LJMU,Anglia Ruskin.Not very hopeful though cause I have a 2:1 plus I am from Zimbabwe which is not even a Commonwealth country but the CSC offers awards to Zimbabweans just to strengthen the capacity of civil society organisations.
    dont belittle yourself...you are qualified. Stay positive pls.

    unconditional offer measures little during consideration...

    Thanks for the encouragement.I am quite unhappy because of the grading system at my former university (the university of zimbabwe) The grading system is tighter as compared to the UK and most countries.At the university of zimbabwe a first class is considered as an aggregate mark of 75-100 % whilst in the UK its 70 -100 .I had a cumulative mark of 73% and was awarded upper second class honours due their tight marking scheme
