WIN pounds 2,500 towards your university tuition fees!

We've teamed up with The Pallasades Shopping Centre in Birmingham to bring you a very special competition.

Today, we give you part two of our Midlands Mastermind competition.

Here's how YOU could be our winner.

All you have to do is correctly answer all 40 questions in our Midlands Mastermind quiz.

Four lucky finalists will be selected from those who get most answers correct.

Then they'll go head to head in the live Midlands Mastermind Final at the Pallasades.

The showdown is at 1pm on Saturday October 20.

And our contest, based on the popular BBC quiz show Mastermind, will see one lucky Midland student walk away with the top prize of pounds 2,500 to go towards their university fees.

The pressure will be on as each student is invited to sit in a replica of the famous big black chair, and sweat under the spotlight as a series of questions from a chosen specialist subject are fired at them.

Jonathan Cheetham, general manager at The Pallasades, says: "Many students embark upon their studies aiming to make a better life for themselves in the future.

"Unfortunately these days, since the introduction of university fees, many young people find themselves in huge debts that take them decades to pay off.

"By hosting Midlands Mastermind we feel that we can at least help one Midland student to ease the burden of this debt and to look forward to a brighter future."

The runners-up will take away a host of great prizes from The Pallasades, including a meal for four at The Newt, a pounds 50 mobile from The Carphone Warehouse, a pounds 50 Ian Allen Books voucher, a pounds 25 Poundland voucher, a pounds 10 Woolworths voucher, a pounds 15 Jonathan James voucher, a pounds 10 Home 2 Home vouchers, a meal for two at Subway and a free haircut from Hair Express.

Here's how to enter.

Fill in the answers to all 40 questions and send them, together with your name, age, address, daytime telephone number and e-mail address to the address shown.
