Read the passage very carefully and choose the options that answer the questions.


The Federal Ministry of Education planned to award scholarship to students in three zones of the country. Each zone was represented by the schools labelled A, B and C. The guidelines used in the selection exercise were as follows:

First was the principle of merit. The students must sit for a Simple Scholarship Test (SST) and score at least 70% and above.

Second was the principle of federal character. Each of the three zones must benefit from the scheme.

Thirdly, only the five best students from each school must he selected.

Fourthly, where more than five students from a school score 70% and above, a second Test (ST) would be conducted to select the five best students.

Fifthly, where the second Test was unable to resolve the selection problem, then an Oral Interview (OT) would be used to arrive at the final selection.

After sitting for the Simple Scholarship Test (SST) the five best students from each school scored as follows:

school A: 70 — 75%;
school B: 65 - 70%;
school C: 66 — 69%.
