Default ACS Masters qualification question

Hello,

I need little help for my friend to understand ACS Masters qualification criteria. She has consulted different agents and each of them tells something different.

My friend has a non-ICT 2 years' bachelor's degree in double maths and physics. She has some vendors certification, ACS assessed her positive but didn't assess her degree and gave her 10 points for qualification for having vendors certification.

She is willing to do a master's in ICT if that increases her score to 15 instead of 10 for qualification.

My question is if you hold a non ICT 2 years bachelors but you hold a 2 years master's degree in IT, would ACS give it AFQ 7+ to claim 15 points?

Or she is going to waste time as you must have a bachelor's in IT to claim 15 points?

Pls help if someone know about it.

Just for reference, i am posting ACS criteria for assessment.

Quote:
5.1 ICT Major Criteria
(a) Bachelor’s degree Level:

A standard 3-year Bachelor level qualification is deemed as having a major in computing if at least 33% of the qualification is ICT. Qualifications that are longer in duration are assessed to the equivalent of a 3-year AQF Level 7 (Bachelor) award.

A Diploma, Advanced Diploma or Associate Degree qualification is deemed as having a major in computing if at least 50% of the qualification is ICT. Qualifications that are longer in duration are assessed to the equivalent of a standard AQF Level 5 or 6 award.

(c) Post Graduate Degree Level:

A post graduate qualification (Graduate Diploma or Masters) that does not require a Bachelor with an ICT major for entry into the course is deemed as having a major in computing if at least 50% of the qualification is ICT. Qualifications that are longer in duration are assessed to the equivalent of an AQF Level 8 and above award. An Australian postgraduate degree with only 12 subjects requires at least 67% ICT content.

Australian post graduate qualifications must contain:

• A minimum of 3 semesters or at least 1.5 years of full-time study;
• At least 2 semesters or 1 year of full-time equivalent ICT content;
• A minimum of 12 units or subjects A post graduate qualification (Graduate Diploma, Masters or Doctoral qualification) that does require at least a Bachelor qualification with a major in ICT for entry into the course, must have ICT content of at least 33%, all of which must be at post graduate level.
According to my personal understanding, if you don't have ICT bachelors but you do masters in IT which has at least 50% ICT content, they'll assess it as AFQ 8 which means you can claim 15 points, am i right?

The bigger question is what will she do with the assessment?
Will the additional 5 points get her an invite

In the days to come in ICT , one would require minimum 95-100 points to get an invite

Will she be capable of getting those points after doing her masters ?

Cheers

NB, she stands 90 right now in 263111 and 5 more points will sure increase her chances.

age 30
single 10
eng 20
Exp 15
naati 5
edu 10

by reading ACS ICT major guidelines, do you think having masters in IT but non IT bachelors will enable to get 15 points instead of 10 ?
