Please I need your advice. I just got a rejection on my Exceptional Talent application. I was deemed to have fulfilled the mandatory and one optional criterion. However, for lack of sufficient evidence, I didn’t fulfill the second criterion (Contributions outside immediate work). For that criterion, I submitted my contribution as a member of the governing council of a not-for-profit institute. I am also a panelist at online events.
My questions are:
- I am thinking of submitting fresh documents to support this criterion. Do I have to make a fresh application?
- For (1) above, I have spoken at technology talks in Higher Institutions that involve mentoring undergraduates. Will letters of invitations count as pieces of evidence?
Thank you for your kind advice.
