  20. Hi Waqas,

    I intend to apply for the UST scholarship for PhD, spring, 2019 scholarship. Unfortunately, the application period is from 20th August till 21st September, 2019. The admission requires IELTS test score from students who are from non-UST designated countries. If i give the IELTS now, the upcoming IELTS exam will now be on 29th September and its result will be received 13 days after the exam takes place. Is there any way i can apply for a conditional offer and later if i meet the IELTS requirement, then my admission can be confirmed. Or else, during my entire study period from Kindergarten till my MBA, the mode of communication and my studies were in English language and i can produce a letter of “Proof of English Proficiency” from my University, Further, i have done GCE O and A Levels, and got a B grade with 82% in English in my O Levels. Hence, can serve as an alternative to the IELTS exam ? Please guide me
