1. My Royal Aeronautical Society membership expired, which will be renewed on 11 Jan 2022. Do we have to wait till then to submit the documents?
If you can obtain the membership renewal before submitting the petition, we suggest waiting.
No, trainee membership is not similar to professional membership.
3. Also, I am IEEE student member. Suppose I become a professional member for the year, does that strengthen the case?
Yes, if you can get a professional membership, it will strengthen your profile. Professional membership demonstrates that you are active in that particular field.
No. Student membership in any professional organization or students’ association is not equivalent to professional membership.
