Frequently asked questions

Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions about the EY Business Student of the Year Award.

Do I have to be nominated by someone else?


No, you nominate yourself and fill in the forms yourself.

Do I have to be strong in every category?


Being strong in every category may be an advantage, however a candidate that is strong in any of the four categories could still be successful in the selection process.

Is there a minimum GPA requirement?


Students with a 9.0 GPA are welcome to enter but there is no GPA minimum. The format of BSOTY will consider the range of attributes possessed by each candidate.

What is expected in the Service to the Community section?
