Dear Mr. Prakash,

Can you please help me too.

This is my problem.

I have completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Software Engineering in December 2011. I have started my work as a Software Engineer in December 2013 and currently im working as a project manager in the same company. (Exp: 03 years and 02 months)

So I have Age: 30, Degree: 15, IELTS: 10 & State Sponsorship: 10 = 65 points.

I will not be claiming any points for my experience. But as per ACS requirement there are asking for two years of work experience. Is it after the deduction of “x” number of years or they just asking for two years of post-qualifying work experience?

What I want to know is I am I eligible to apply for skill assessment with only 3 years of work experience?


PLEASE HELP ME TO CLARIFY.

Thank you

Hi Prakash,

As I mentioned in my last post , I had applied for Victorian ss for Software Tester under 190 subclass, on 10th Nov 2016 and same day filed for an EOI. Though I got an acknowledgement from them about my file reference number, till date I did not receive the invite. So it's been more than 3 months and no luck. I am aware of Software Tester being closed in Victoria. I was hopeful to get an invite since I filed ss and would before the position got closed.

Now I have no other option left than applying for a reassessment of ACS , this time for Software Engineer. My last ACS positive result for Software Tester was on 14 the June 2016. So I have following questions before I reapply for ACS software tester.

I changed my job after ACS assessment last year and now should I show the new job experience (9 months ) to ACS. Also, I got my new passport (added spouse name ). So am thinking to provide these 2 news docs to ACS when I apply for reassessment. I will be linking to the old application and change the job code. Let the previous experience letters be as is. Upload these new 2 docs and apply for reassessment under Software Engineer. Please let me know if am on right path.

Thanks a lot and could we please connect on WhatsApp. I will leave you a PM.

Thanks
Ravindra

So, as long as your roles and responsibilities match, it shouldn't be a problem.
And anyways, the roles and responsibilities for 261314 is same as 261313

Hope this helps!
Good luck!

1) Does ACS accept Detailed Marksheet which is not notarised?

• Drive, implement, and maintain strategy around the automated testing of applications, API’s, and frameworks as part of a continuous integration environment
• Debug and narrow down the cause of the issues/defects found by traversing the application logs in Unix.
• Write sql queries to create/maintain/delete the data required for the functioning of the software application during various testing phases and user demos.

This would suffice.

Hi Friends,
I got positive result for ACS software engineer today. After applying for reassesment within 10 days I got the result. Now need to file another EOI for subclass 189. Co incidence , I received rejection letter for subclass 190 from Victoria state today itself . I am wondering how come I received ACS reassesment positive for Software Engineer and rejection from Victoria for Software Tester on same exact day.

Anyways, my 190 door is closed now. It was a complete waste for time , money and effort to apply for Software Tester and going through 190 subclass. After 4 long months I received rejection letter.

Now the only hope is 189 and need to see my luck. I urge all of you not to go for Software Tester and 190 subclass. It's my personal opinion and not a legal advice. Thanks.

The roles and responsibilities of Software engineers are already given in the ANZSCO code

As long as 65% of your RNR match the ANZSCO code, you will get a positive assessment

How can other people's RNR help you, I fail to understand
Your application has to be based on what you actually did over the years and not what ANZSCO code requires or some other member which has been assessed successfully by ACS did

Please don't give false statements which may land you in trouble down the line and may lead to confiscating your visa fees

Cheers
