I am on WP in UK and want to apply for Tier1. I have earned in more than 1 country in the last 12 months.
First, is it correct to refer to the HSMP pdf for previousearnings for Tier1?

In case it is, it has been mentioned that -
If the applicant has lived and worked in more than one country during the past fifteen months, the caseworker will normally assess the total income over the total period being claimed up to a maximum of twelve months, against the country where the applicant has spent the longest period, on a pro-rata basis.
This is the only occasion where we can pro-rata an applicantâ€™s earnings.
Contrary to this, the Tier1 guidance notes mention -
73. The Assessing Officer will only consider actual earnings made.
Earnings claimed will not be considered on a pro rata basis
under any circumstances.
Would any one know the correct interpretation of this?
