Tamar, just for a start - hide the below average score on your profile. You may have passed the test but it doesn't look good to a potential client, and also, decide which of the Upwork readiness tests you are going to keep. You have two identical tests showing. Hide one of them.
You will probably have to get a couple of jobs with good feedback to qualify you for rhe rising talent label.
Hello Alexander. Thank you for viewing my profile. Well, that is maybe because it's a Masters of English Literature and Linguistics, and not exactly of English Language. Besides, it is a challenging test containing words that can even make natives stumble. Furthermore, I choose to look at it as 4.60/5.0, which is not quite bad.

Hello Nichola. Please view my profile and suggest me a fast track to be awarded Rising Talent.
Rising talent requires you to be honest about your skills. You are offering proofreading and editing in English and you say you are fluent. Your overview is full of grammar mistakes as well as your post. You really need to reevaluate what you're offering. Clients will read your overview and move on.
I got rising talent before I got my first job apparently by having a good profile and submitting a slew of proposals over the course of 2 weeks. i just got a review of my profile from Upwork as part of the program.
