You guys will first do a written interview, the fsb exam..it carries 40 marks, 40 questions.... it is very easy, at least it was to me.. maths, english, i.c.t and current affairs.... to get a good shot at being nominated by fsb especially from those from competitive states, you need to.score at least 35/40 in this exam... if you pass and you are nominated by fsb you will have another oral interview which will decide your fate, with the russians..they will be the ones to do the final selection.

Oh and yes, the fsb exam carries 40 marks your waec carries 60 marks, from that fsb will nominate the best from each state...thus none of that matters to the russians......this is jist for fsb nomination.... basically, Russia needs only 60 people from Nigeria (i don't know if slots have been increased this year), so there fore fsb will nominate 120 people using this exam and the waec..from which Russia will do the final picking, Russia does the final picking not fsb so there is no wayo involved, atleast at the final stage... so as i said, 120 people will be picked by fsb from the battalion of people that will apply for Russia... So your competition at this stage is with people from your state....from.each stage fsb will.nominate the best 3 candidates while some more competitive or special states may get 4 or 5, depends on fsb...but no.less than 3 people i guess... so do your best and good luck...(that does not mean on that day of exam you shouldn't help.others, trust me it's by helping others that you will find and correct your own mistakes..if you are on your own you won't find your mistakes easily)

I am saying all these, cause during my time, i knew nothing about all of these, and these were questions that kept on ringing in my head, but i got no answers... i hope these helps someone...good luck

Note: this is for Russia, those for Hungary will follow a different process after the fsb exam, also for China, algeria and morroco will follow different processes
Thanks for the info

2- Am I qualified for the scholarship?

3- How I am going to use my skills to benefit my sponsor?

My question is, is it OK or there is something else?
