Yes right? Teacher also told me it was 3 march also. recently I’ve emailed to my host Japanese university to ask about the situation of MEXT announcement. They have sent the emailed back and said that MEXT informing them that announcement is being delayed for about a week or so. they are also waiting for announcement too! If there’s any news I will tell you all!✨✨

my school just said that there was just no response yet, they could not tell the time estimate. I wonder how it will turn out, our semester starts on April 4, there is no time to sign pledge etc...

mine is Waseda, but the deadline should be the same for all schools I think. It was supposed to be early March initially for the April semester. I wonder what other universities know about it, seems like this is the only live thread here.

I also receive this; you guys send the pledge statement right after this, or waiting for the MEXT scholarship announcement?

although it was not TiTech, last year I heard results on March 3, and the deadline to do the paperwork was March 13. But my semester started in April, so there was a rush

I sent the pledge and updated MEXT forms already. You have to to be officially recommended for the scholarship by TiTech as I recall.

Oo I see. IGPA at TiTech will start in September 2021. I think our timeline is different

I just receive the pledge but don't receive the updated MEXT form. Is it okay to send the pledge now?

That's strange, i feel like they actually mean preliminary scholarship announcement, universities will probably inform us if we are officially recommended to MEXT by the end March, since the previous emails seems to stress that we only passed the screening and we will then be recommended to MEXT.
Anyway, lets hope they actually mean official result from MEXT, it will end our long wait !

Yup send it now, I believe you have to do so by March 9th anyway (tomorrow in japan).
Hi! I thought we can accept the offer of admission until May 28, 2021 as stated in the attached important notice file in the email?

Same case for me. I'm thinking if it's better to wait for the MEXT Scholarship results before sending the pledge statement form

Congratss✨🙏🏻
Thank you! also the deadline to submit pledge for my uni is March 11 electronic copy, and March 15 hardcopy by post. So you guys don't wait until May, it says deadline is strict, and we may lose it if we are late

March 9th ? I thought the deadline was May 28th as stated from the email
Oh interesting I didn't get that notice in my email. It actually looks like my email program blocked the attachment (suspicion of virus???). Very odd!

I feel like this must recent email was supposed to be sent on March 4th. My email last week "request for confirmation and scholarship application documents" gave me a deadline of march 9th for my pledge and March 14th for my updated MEXT forms. It had this little blurb in it:

"After reviewing your confirmation email, Tokyo Tech will nominate you as a candidate for the MEXT Scholarship through University Recommendation."

I am wondering what may be tbe content of the confirmation email sent by your university? @Franchesca @imocchi
Hi Magaji. You would need to clarify at your school at which stage your application process is. The content of the emails is simply congratulations, etc., I had to clarify from my school what it meant each time. So for me it was three emails. First congratulations email came from my graduate school, turns out it is just nomination by the graduate school within university (not actually nominating to MEXT). After that one you may have had an interview. Second congratulating email was about nominating from the university level (higher level from your graduate school). And then there was a third congratulations email, which meant confirmation from MEXT. So, just ask your school directly, the wording in those emails can be ambiguous. Good luck!
