By the way, if anyone was thinking of joining a web community for MEXTers aside from the facebook one that our dear Neoxtremex set up...
I would NOT recommend Monbusho.org. I tried to sign up there over a month ago to reach current and past MEXT scholars, but they're pretty rude and unclear on what they need.
If you DO try to sign up, keep in mind that you have to be a current or past MEXT scholar (as in do NOT try to sign up if you're just applying for it. You have to have already received the scholarship), and you have to give them as much information as possible in your "comments" section. That section is actually your application to join the website, which they don't actually tell you until it's too late.
Thumbs down on that website. :auch:
I will apply for Mext scholarship next week and this is my first time to apply for any scholarship so i'm a bit nervous. I am applying for master course in economics. The problem is that my average mark (did i use the right word?) during my studies is 7.0. I think it is low and because of that i am afraid that i will not be accepted.
My question is , for all of you who have been accepted for MEXT scholarship 2010, what was your average mark during studies and does it play a key role in selecting process?
sorry for my english
