I am applying for a scholarship and I need to write an application letter for the preselections. I filled the subject field by "Application for [name of the scholarship] scholarship preselecting examination"
But then I get confused when I start searching for "preselecting" in the dictionary, I can't find any name or adjective under this title, thought I think I need one for the expression to be grammatically correct. Can you help me to clarify my confusion? If "preselecting examination" is wrong, what is the correct word, knowing that I try to translate the french expression "concours de préselection".
