is it possible to break the 5 year contract to marry and move to another country

anonymous

a contract is a contract, if you need to break it, then you will need to discuss with the scholarship awarding body.

why are you thinking of breaking the contract even before you take it up? or have you taken this scholarship actually?

i thought the CGPA only require 3.00 and above. How come is 3.50 and above?
For the interview, is it all the students who apply for this scholarship will get this interview or they already filter it and just ask for some students to go attend this interview?
What type of questions will be asked?
About politics or what?

Maggie said...

Serve the country at least 5 years if there are any vacancy or it is compulsory?

the conditions of the scholarship have been stated clearly on the website (http://www.yayasantar.org.my/ )

only the eligible applicants will be asked to attend the interview.

u need to discuss with the committee should u plan to break the contract.

about serving the country, you need to talk to them also.
