recently i won a partial scholarship after 'winning' a chemistry essay competition.

im applying for this engineering thing, so I wanted to mention this is my cover letter. But how do i do this as in my essay I wrote about polyethene, but that's not really relevant to engineering?

I know nothing but have you got someone else to state this like a testimonial?

A testimonial is formal statement from someone else to get you a better job or position

If you put it in your letter and they asked for evidence, would you be able to ask a tutor/teacher/whatever to back you up? This may be a certificate or a written letter


Sorry I like the word testimonial, though I never have chance to use as it is such an old word! x

"Engineering thing"?
"Cover letter"?

Are you actually applying for an Engineering degree?
Are you applying through UCAS?

Because I also got a partial scholarship. However, 30% for engineering. Are you applying for chemistry or engineering for university? And if I may ask which engineering scheme is it?
