  1. Will you help me to understand, the documents we can access using the membership are word doc format so that I can download and start building/writing/updating the content relevant to me.

    The Same documents(personal statement, recommendation letters, evidence template etc…) will have different variation? Or all membership holders will have to use the same templete?

    1. Hi Santosh,
      Thank you for your question. It’s a truly good question.
      I understand that your need is to get as many valued samples of personal statement, letter of support and supporting documents as possible. And I understand this your need because I remember the amount of headache related to drafting these docs.
      However, you must understand – Tech Nation gets dozens of applications in a week.

      Just imagine the situation: they have 10 applications and 4 of them has everything the same. Just a couple of phrases are different. I can tell you without a doubt that these 4 applications will be rejected. Because Tech Nation pays attention to personality. And you can express it only via your own words.

      As a result, if you will get More Talent Visa Help, you will get three Personal Statements of real people (anonymized and de-personalised). This will get you an overall understanding and example what, how and where you need to write.
      The same with supporting documents and Letters of Recommendation – as of now I posted two of the letters but the next sample will be ready till the end of October 2020.
      Additionally, More Talent Visa Help gives access to 30+ phrases, which you can use drafting your own personal statement or letter of recommendation.
      I selected them from a variety of texts.

      Finally, yes, it will be access to posts on this blog. It won’t be a doc or zip file.
      It will be a material for reading, digesting in your brain and expressing via your own thoughts. In other words, the articles in Samples of Documents, which are now locked, will be unlocked.

      Also, if you need to proofread your draft of Personal Statement – you can read here.
