Will my work experience be taken into account?
You need to have 30 hours of work each week in the same job for a minimum of one month (that is 120 hours) for it to be considered as part of your overall assessment. If you have two jobs and you work ten hours at the pizza place and 20 hours at the local supermarket, unfortunately your total 30 hours cannot be taken into account.

Can I write a motivational essay?
