    Welcome to XtremePapers Contest 2012!

    Thank you!

    Now, as most of you know we held a contest last year. This, actually, is a follow-up to that.
    Last year, you were required to upload revision related resources and were awarded tickets based on the quantity of uploads followed by a lucky draw at the end of contest.
    Congratulations again to all the winners!

    The trouble is, last time we weren't able to grab much material.
    Most of the submissions were duplicates, content from Wikipedia and/or had copyright issues.
    This time though, its a lot simpler (and more juicier!).

    The What:
    You have a chance to prepare revision notes for XtremePapers but it will pass-through a selection.

    The How:
    If you think you have the potential and want to help XtremePapers advance knowledge, send me the following via conversation
    with the subject 'Application for XtremePapers contest 2012':
    > A little about yourself,
    > Your offered subjects,
    > A personal statement,
    > A sample.

    A little about yourself:
    Please include the following:
    Title
    First/ given name(s)
    Surname/ family name(s)
    Gender
    Date of birth
    Postal address
    Country
    Email address
    Current qualification

    Your offered subjects:
    Please make a list of your offerings in the descending order of priority (highest priority on top).
    It has to be a minimum of one subject for example 'A Level Mathematics'.
    There is no restriction to the number of subjects you want to offer.
    Please include your last awarded grade by your examining body like CIE or Edexcel (or your school's last grade if you haven't completed the qualification)

    A personal statement:
    The personal statement is your opportunity to tell us about your suitability and background for the subject(s) that you hope to offer.
    You need to demonstrate your enthusiasm and commitment, and above all, ensure that you stand out from the crowd.

    A sample:
    While the personal statement reflects you, your sample reflects your work.
    The sample should be one complete chapter of your offered subject(s) in a paragraph form and no less than 600 words.
    Individual samples are required for each subject you've listed above.

    The reward:
    > A gift pack including a selectable Android flagship from:
    Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III

    Nokia Lumia 900 (Windows Phone)
    <more products will be added later>
    > Future commitment of regular paid contracts for the maintenance of submitted revision material,
    > Your name and profile link listed under contributions at the bottom of revision section (optional),
    > Deep inner pride for helping XtremePapers advance knowledge for everyone,
    > Good feelings in the cockles of your heart.

    The fine print:
    > Selections will be made on the basis of a complex criteria involving the provided information only,
    > XtremePapers reserves the right to reject any application without providing any reason,
    > Selected members may be required to validate the provided information in some cases,
