Hi Shel,

Got my ACS Assessment Result Today as Positive. They have taken my APTECH Advance Diploma at AQF Advance Diploma with Major in computing but have deducted 6 years from my experience which I assume is as per Summary of Criteria 2014. So Now my relevant skill experience is after August 2007.

I wanted to check here that when I submit my EOI, Do I have to claim my points on the Advance Diploma or can I use my B. Com from Delhi University as for my education level and the relevant experience as per ACS assessment. The reason for this is to know if ACS assessment is to know if I can claim 15 points for my bachelor's degree and 10 points for my experience.

So Is it allowed to claim Skilled Experience assessed through ACS and Non-ICT Degree assessed through Vetassess and file in EOI? Also in Vetassess can I only get the B Com degree assessed and no need to get my experience assessed again?

Also I was reading one of the FAQs on VETASSESS at this link:

Points Test Advice (General professional occupation) - VETASSESS

It says that a referral will be needed from the Skill Assessing authority in case we want only Qualification assessment from VETASSESS. It's also written that a Formal referal id not needed.

Can you help in understanding this please.

Thanks,

I haven't done anything yet as I got my ACS assessment today itself. I am not going through MARA agent but a regular Agen. I want to claim 15 points for Bachelors but still confused. I am not sure if we can still claim for Bachelor's if ACS has assesed my Aptech Diploma at AQF Advance Diploma - ICT Major already. If you get some clarity on it then please share with me.

Any Serior members here who can help us understand this please?

Did ACS assess the BCOM as equivalent to the AQF framework? If not and you want points for it you must get it assessed by vetassess.

Or you could just claim points for the diploma.

Hi Shel,

Thanks a lot for that clarification but if I look at this link below, It says that a referral is needed from the Assessing Authority or DIBP. A formal referral is not required, but it is the applicants' responsibility to ensure that they have a Points Test Advice from the correct assessing authority.

Points Test Advice (General professional occupation) - VETASSESS

I could not understand this and don't know how to get this referral. Some of the members on other forums said that if ACS did not assess my Bachelor's and assessed the diploma then I might have issues.

Can you please provide some guidance here as well.

Apologies for asking so many questions but I am in a confused state right now and don't know how to proceed from here.

No you do not need a referral. Points Test Advice (General professional occupation) - VETASSESS

Applicants who have received a Skills Assessment from another Assessing Authority

If you have been referred to VETASSESS by another assessing authority for an assessment of your unrelated or higher qualifications you can apply using our online application form or by completing and submitting the SRG34 Application for VETASSESS Advisory Letter on Qualification(s) for Points Test Purposes (non-VETASSESS occupations)

VETASSESS will assess the highest qualification held (regardless of the area of study), up to postgraduate doctoral degree level unless the applicant requests another qualification to be assessed for Points Test purposes. In some cases VETASSESS will need to consider two or more qualifications to determine whether together they are comparable to the educational level of a qualification on the Australian Qualifications Framework.

I have a similar concern.

I have applied to ACS via RPL (last week) and therefore hope to receive a positive response within 12 weeks so that I can submit an EOI.
However, as my degree is not IT-related I am certain that I will require VETASSESS to show my degree to be equivalent to an aussie degree.

VETASSESS forms say that I need to be referrred? But I cannot afford to wait 12 weeks then submit to VETASSESS and wait a similar time. Can we not submit to VETASSESS anyway?

Thanks

this is what i came across on the ACS website,

acs.org.au/migration-skills-assessment/faqs/recognition-letter/i-have-a-suitable-skills-assessment-through-rpl,-but-my-qualifications-is-not-listed-on-the-result-letter[/url]

my .02, if the educational qualifications are not assessed by ACS and you are planning to claim points for it, then it should be assessed by vetassess

look at the thread below, where people have been asked to get education assessment done by case officers

expatforum.com/expats/australia-expat-forum-expats-living-australia/162720-vetassess-points-test-advice-only-processing-time.html[/url]

As per my experience, I had a Non-IT Degree (B.Com) and had a diploma in Software Engg. So ACS deducted 6 years from my experience and did not assess B.Com for obvious reasons.

I did not get a VETASSESS done for my Degree because I am not applying for an accupation code with that degree and there is no need to get it assessed for the role code. I simply uploaded my Bachelor degree documents with my Visa application as I had mentioned Degre - Bachelor (Other) in my EOI and claimed 15 points for it.

Today I for the Direct Grant and no contact or questions from CO for my application was made.

Just enjoying right now looking at the Golder email
