Exceptional Promise endorsed -> Worth applying again for the Talent?

Good day there,
Today I received fantastic news: I was approved for the GT Exceptional Promise. It’s amazing to get it, don’t get me wrong but I’m beginning to wonder why I didn’t apply for the Talent. 5 years as opposed to 3 years. The difference in the Healthcare surcharge is £3,788 (£624 per year for each applicant, three of us) – that’s a lot of money.

Dear Community, I have two inquiries, the 2nd of which I couldn’t find an answer to:

  1. Shall I apply with the same pack and try out for the GT Talent instead?
  2. If I apply and get rejected, would my existing endorsement be revoked if my new application is denied?

Many thanks for your time and feedback ahead of time! Best,

HI @thebulatk. if you are qualified for Talent and applied for Promise, you would have been given Talent. I know folks who applied for Promise That Got Talent.

I think that answers Q1.

I don’t know the answer for Q2.

Also getting Talent will only reduce your surcharge, your family still has to spend 5 years and pay for surcharge for those 5 years before they can get ILR.

If you want to apply for talent, you need to wait fir three months for you endorsement to expire thn reapply as exceptional talent.

That is a serious risk. All best @thebulatk. I love people who are bold.
