Default IQA for Master's or Bachelor's degrees?

Hello everyone,
This is my 1st post in this forum. Excuse me, if this has already been asked here.

I am a Mechanical design engineer by profession. I have done B.Eng in Mechanical eng and MSc in Mechatronics. My MSc was based on my B.Eng qualification.

Now, I am confused, do i need to apply IQA for my MSc or BEng or both? I wish to claim points for my MSc.

Thank you.

You only have to assess qualifications that are not exempt from assessment so check that first on the exemption certificate for the country where the qualifications were awarded.

If you do need assessment, I would get them both done.

You'll need the masters to give you the most points on the EOI but you will also (probably) need the bachelors degree to claim additional bonus points through absolute skill shortage if you are claiming for a particular occupation off the Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL).
