I have some doubts which were not cleared in the newsletter of November Challenge. It was stated in the newsletter that CodeChef will provide full scholarship to take the CCDSAP certification exam for students scoring highest from a particular school or university in the November Long Challenge. It was also stated that those who will be eligible will receive full scholarship to take the CCDSAP certification exam (Foundation, or Advanced level, if you have the requisite rating) which is to be held on 19th November. Is it compulsory to take the exam on 19th if you get the scholarship?
There are very less number of cities available for the examination. So if a student gets the scholarship than will he/she have to go the city available for the exam on 19th Nov only in order to get the scholarship or CodeChef will provide him/her scholarship whenever they want to give the exam, when a nearby city is available?
Is there a minimum number of student participation required from a college/university in order for its’ students to be eligible for the scholarship?
If it is compulsory to take the exam on 19th, then do we have to register and pay for the exam before 15th and the amount will be refunded if we get the scholarship? Or will there be a separate registration provided for those who get it?
As there are very few cities, it won’t be feasible for many students to travel to the nearest city(considering some cities which are very far from the nearest exam centre) for taking the exam, when the Semester End Exams of many colleges are on the head.
If taking the exam on 19th Nov is true, I hereby request @admin to please allow students who get the scholarship to take the exam on any other feasible date or when a nearby centre is available.
