Shell Scholarship Application TIP from my Experience

I applied for shell scholarship in my 200 Level and I prepared hardly for the scholarship, I was among those shortlisted for it because I knew how to apply in a way that necessitates being shortlisted.  I practised a lot of dragnet scholarship test questions because it was handled by dragnet that year, And to my amazement I passed and FAILED later.  The test went well and I anticipated the award. I was contacted later about a month after via SMS that I should fill an online form and select my community from the dropdown, on the form I found what I am about to share with you.

If SHELL oil company is not located in your community NOT STATE, YOU WOULD BE WISE NOT TO APPLY FOR AREA OF OPERATION, INSTEAD APPLY FOR NATIONAL MERIT.  I applied for area of operation because I thought that it would be less competitive and my state (Abia) was on the list, but I didn’t know that my Community (Village) was not hosting any shell company, so it wasn’t on the form.
