Default Skill Assessment

Hi guys,

Major dilemma! I'm a student studying to be a Chartered Accountant in India. We've got three exam levels to pass in order to complete the course (along with a 3.5 years internship under a Chartered Accountant. Total duration of course is approx 4-5 years.
I'm planning to apply for the GSM-175 visa. Just wondering if I'm not eligible...bcoz of skill assessment...
I've a Masters Degree in Commerce and a Bachelors in Accounts & Finance. I've also cleared thru two levels of the CA exam (only have my finals pending which i'm eligible to attempt only in/after May 2011)

My queries are as follows:
1) Can i get assessed as an 'Accountant' with the above two degrees? Also completing the mid-level of the CA course gives me the degree of 'Accounting Technician'.... So is it too much of a risk to take getting my degree assessed now? Should i just wait to pass my CA finals so that i am a member of the Accounting Body? (but that would take me 9-12 months at least -- and I really don't want to delay applying)...

2)Would my internship be considered as 'work experience'? It was full time work i.e. Mon - Sat 10 am - 6 pm, I was paid, I've been independently handling clients for over a year now...

3) I've heard that a person applying for a visa as a person 'never married with no dependents' has a higher risk of getting rejected... is that true?

Hope my queries are clear...written in
