Can you write the Personal Statement by yourself?

Probably, yes, but… In reality many of the applicants who thought they can, actually, CAN’T. They write a long text with information about themselves, their startups and their expectations however, occasionally they miss something important and afterwards – do not get Endorsement. So, let’s start from the basics of the Personal Statement – this important document for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa.

8 typical mistakes of Exceptional Talent Visa applicants

I am not joking. Below I prepared a list of eight dangerous quotes sent to me within the emails by my blog readers. Also, a couple of them are generalised sentences from Personal Statements drafted by potential Exceptional Talent Visa applicants. In major cases, later on all of these visa applications become just numbers in total statistics of Endorsement refusals and these people are in the army of unsuccessful visa applicants.

So why I am publishing this list? To caution you about the typical mistakes and to supersede your potentially harmful thoughts by short constructive ideas how to avoid these mistakes to get UK Exceptional Talent Visa.

General advice on Personal Statement

Sometimes it happens that potential applicants for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa send me their drafts of personal statements and ask about my opinion. I want to write officially and in bold: guys, I am not an authorized assessor of your personal statements neither for Exceptional Promise nor for Exceptional Talent visa applications.

Hence, it is not a difficult task for me to read a piece of text and write what I think about it but this is not the main goal of this blog. Moreover, any personal opinion (mine or any other person) – it is just a bunch of thoughts. Only Tech Nation Visa Panel makes the final decision and only people who are members of this Panel are entitled to make any official comments. Or immigration advisors, who are authorized by OISC.

You may be a real digital star but with bad and unclear wordings in the Personal Statement, your personal score during the visa assessment process will be dropped. I have already wrote a couple of articles about basics of this document and its details.

Today I need to clarify one more point. The question for today is: are the quotes and links relevant to include into the Personal Statement for UK Exceptional Talent Visa?

5 must do’s in your Personal Statement

Finally, you have decided that it worth trying and now are preparing your application for UK Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa to the Tech Nation (or, more correct – Home Office) to get your Endorsement in Digital Technology.
I think you have already known about Tech Nation Guidelines, regularly updated by this Designated Competent Body, so you need strictly follow them.
However, there are still a lot of assumptions and unique questions regarding all of the parts of the application. Even with so detailed guidelines about the talent visas.
Hence, today I decided again to write my five extra thoughts on personal statement. By the way, I have wrote about the Personal Statement in details before. I even made a brief instruction how to write the Personal Statement for Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) Visa. By the way, you can find examples of Personal Statement in my Talent Visa app. However, there are still plenty of topics to cover.
