I know as an O level student, it’s a great accomplishment to have scholarship and have the privilege of schooling, for free; you will not pay tuition fee that is cool!

What you need to win this last Scholarship for o level students.
As you have seen above it’s an essay competition, which means that you are going to write essays from home, and submit to them, through the link above.
So definitely you will need to be good at English language, and know your Grammer very well.
You will also have to be creative, and craft your words properly. One other thing thatyou’d also need as you apply for this scholarship is correct spellings.
You should make sure that your spellings are correct and that you write accurately, and your Grammer too should be appropriate.
This is hard work, that’s why we recommend you use GRAMMERLY.
It’s a software used to correct the typed text, fix the grammers and also fix the spelling errors too.
With this and your own efforts you should be able to scale through.
Is this scholarship open to Nigerian O level students?
Yes this scholarship is available for Nigerians, this is because Nigeria is a common wealth country and the requirement is that participants MUST be from a common wealth country.
So if you are a Nigerian get your pen on paper and start writing.
How do I send myessay if I can’t send through the internet?
Well it is specifically said that they highy recommend you send through the internet!
But if you stay where you have no access to such, then the only hope would be a post office.
I really feel this is risky because The RCS isn’t accepting essays through post office as from May 1st 2019, that’s a month before the deadline.
But if you’re sure you can submit before then, here’s the address you will have to send to
The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition
