    1. Even if you score 100/100, you will still pay. NIIT will only give you some discount. No full scholarship.

    1. Eat peoples money? How? The fact is that it is not a full scholarship. If you perform well, you will get some discount. besides, the scholarship is FREE. Just ensure that if you can't afford the fee for the course of your choice, DO NOT pay any registration fee or whatsoever after you might have seen your result.

      I i be you, just look for any standard IT organisation that offers the course you want but not this NIIT. Even though you pass their exams, you will still not be happy for what you are paying for. I know what i am talking about.
