  1. Incisive and educative
    Great read!

    What aspect of the application, should one focus more on, or pay particular attention to?
    Secondly, what categories of people are most suitable to get a recommendation letter from?

    • Thanks for your kind words.

      I believe every part of the alication is as important. However, pay detailed attention to your Essay, Referees and Personal Statement.

      Letter of recommendation is best gotten from those you’ve worked closely with, who can give a good testimony of you and what you represent. Examples of such people are: Superiors at work, your lecturers, past bosses, even colleagues.

      I hope you’re satisfied with these responses.

      It’s barely 7days to the end of your application, do ensure you get to the submit button.

      All the best.

  2. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
