Default ACS Skill Assessment

Hi,

I am planning to go for an ACS assessment with a 4 yrs bachelor degree from a renowned institute outside Australia. My degree is not closely related to my nominated occupation. So, I have a feeling that it might be assessed as an ICT insufficient, where I will have to go through the RPL submission process.

But there's a bleak chance that it might turn out to be an ICT Minor. Can someone please suggest if I should at the beginning of my application, submit the RPL? or the ACS team will get back if found NON-ICT post which I should go ahead with the RPL submission process?

How many years experience do you have ?
After 6 years are deducted, will you have sufficient points from experience to realistically get an invite ?
Just don’t waste money blindly in assessments and tests without taking a hard look at where you will stand in terms of getting an invite

Cheers

At present, I have 9yrs of professional experience in the ANZSCO code am planning to apply for. It's just that my degree is not exactly related to my work profile, that's why need inputs on whether to go for an RPL or not.

So even if you get a positive assessment you will be left with just 5 points for experience
In these times where anything less then 85 points stands no chance of an invite in ICT , do you realistically see your self getting 85 points ?
If not, it’s throwing good money down the drain

Anyways, coming to your questions if you are confident that your degree is not relevant to your experience, then go through the RPL route
I think you are the best judge and not anyone else

Cheers

Thanks for your inputs..it definitely helps to have more clarity! What I was really keen to know is how ACS works? If they initially assess my ICT content as insufficient, will they come round and ask for RPLs which I can append to the existing assessment request (will it involve additional cost?) or do I need to apply for a fresh assessment altogether?

What's your stream in engineering and the code you applying for, May be that will help seniors to guide more precisely.
