Despite this, she persevered and achieved a 72% aggregate score on the NTS test, placing her on the second merit list. However, her financial situation made it difficult to continue her education until she learned about the DAFI and HSSP Scholarships through BUITEMS-ICRMS. With their assistance, Faiza was able to apply for both scholarships and secure the HSSP scholarship, which provided her with financial support and motivation.
