Guys

although it may seem that 'he' is ambiguous here but there's a rule under which it may refer to Jim.

Rule: a pronoun, in subject position of a clause, may refer to the subject of a parallel clause.

clause1: Jim (subject) is working harder than Jack
clause2: as he (subject) wants the scholarship

so IMO (i'm not very confident on this though) 'he' may refer to Jim.

BTW where did you see this sentence and in what context? May be that will give us a clearer picture.

I want a second opinion on this please.

This is ambiguous pronoun as “he” can refer Jack or Jim.

Yes "he" is not ambiguous, it refers to Jim. This was one of the examples in the grammar textbook. I thought why not broach this in the forum.
