Ufone has partnered with British Council for a scholarship programme with prizes worth Rs 5 Million; Rs.1 million each will be given to five lucky winners.
Any student who has taken the IELTS through British Council and aims to take admission in a university is eligible for participation. All they need to do is to SMS their registration code through their Ufone number to 3242 and will be given a quiz.
The quiz will comprise 10 questions and the top 10 scorers will be given topics which they will work on and then present to British Council. One winner will receive Rs.1 million for each cycle and this process will repeat five times for different test dates.
