What does it take to be considered for the Clarendon Scholarship?Watch
I am in my second year of BA Economics and Politics and I am intending to apply to the University of Oxford for the Mphil in Economics.
As I was going through their funding page, I discovered the Clarendon Scholarship and it seems to be very advantageous and very "respected".
I was just wondering what it would take to be considered and receive the scholarship?
PS: Up to now I have received a prize for best joint degree student in my deparment and my economics grades are roughly above 95%. However I do very poorly with the extra-curricular activity, I am only enrolled in one society, and I don't think I will be publishing anything during my undergrad'.
Also, I am intending to take the GRE, and I would like to know how good my results will have to be for the scholarship?
Any tips and advice will be much appreciated.
- I don't think you need to do anything other than apply to be considered for the Clarendon, and several other, scholarships (but check this in the application process!)
- Extra-curricular activity won't be of much significance
- If you'd published something that would be great but the vast majority of applicants won't have published anything either, and the very few that have might not have published anything particularly good
- Who knows how good your results will have to be? Do the best you can in your BA and apply for the course.
