Hey there! I’ve just completed my Warwick Global Excellence Scholarship essay although I think its pretty generic. I was wondering what you guys would write about and how you’d relate it to the topic “What Makes You Excellent”. I’ve added a good portion about academic achievements and community building activities, but I’d love to hear how you would/have approach(ed) it.

Hey,
I wrote mine as well and I kinda have the same problem of feeling like it’s too generic even though the mix of achievements I put are unique to me.
Can I ask, which course are you applying for?

Accepted at the University of Toronto-Scarborough and the University of Sydney, which by in large are the notable ones, and a few other universities in Australia/Canada. I also was offered a place at Durham as well.

Firstly I suggest you expand on what makes you excellent in the first place and, how through your degree at Warwick you can bring about a change locally, globally, economically, etc. Basically link your excellence back to your reasons for studying accounting and finance and how you can contribute through your experience.

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being very confident, how certain are you guys about getting the scholarship? Do you feel your chances are high/low/non-existent lol?

Don’t worry, I’ll be withdrawing my Warwick Application tomorrow and many like me will follow if they’ve got an offer from their top choices. So there’s a 2/9 probability you’ll get one which would make the odds in your favour.
