Please Help Review: Confused on which to use with for MC and OC

I have been following the forum for months. Thank you all for your support. I have managed to get the below-listed documents for exceptional promise.

I need help on which one I can use for MC and the one to use for which OCs.
I am currently working in an NGO in a tech role and have my fintech startup I just launched on 1st January 2024. Can I mention both or choose 1?

Should I split evidence 8?

Thank you for being so helpful in the review.

Hi @Nnenna_Nkata , you have an impressive profile and i remember you from when you developed the covid tracker for your home country. However, I believe your fintech is extremely recent as it was just released this month. You could add it as supporting but i believe you should go back to old evidences.

@C91 Thank you so much. Yes, we launched the mobile app on 1st January, but have been operational for 1 year on the side. Do you think I should remove it from MC

@Nnenna_Nkata Yes I will say take it off MC. However, if you have two other evidences that are not recent that you could use for MC, you can then add the fintech as the 3rd but the sad part is you cannot repeat it.

Scholarship for your masters can be used in Academic excellence which should be Oc4 but do you have published papers with a prestigious journal and did you graduate with first class/distinction?

This is my two cents for now, perhaps people who are more knowledgeable can share. I will also advice that to make it easier, you should try looking at the technation guide and dividing your evidences yourself first then we can help to shuffle things around.

You need to split your evidence in to mandatory and 2 optional criteria. It’s easier to provide feedback that way
