Default Can I Claim a bonus points from my lower qualification

I have submitted an EOI with a total points of 135, and i have been selected.

i have PAR for a qualification in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning assessed with level 9, and i did not include my bachelor degree in mechanical engineering.

The EOI was declined, because my qualification is not matching LTSSL as per the immigration officer, and i claimed qualification and work experience bonus based on mechanical engineer, i explained to the officer several times, that the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning is a specialization in mechanical engineering, and i did not include my bachelor degree because i would claim the highest points, and also as per ANZSCO, the Air Condition Engineer, is under Mechanical Engineer - ANZSCO 233512, but in vain.

Now i already made another PAR for my bachelor degree which assessed as level 7.

I'm submitting another EOI, but if i did not include my master degree, and my total points will be 125 only, and every thing will be accurate.

My query is that, can i include the two qualifications, and claim the qualification and work experience bonus based on the lower qualification ???

an my point will be as follows:

Age: 25

Employment: 0

Employment bonus: 0

Qualification: 60 (based on the master degree - level 9)

Qualification bonus: 10 (to be claimed on my bachelor degree mechanical engineering).
Work Experience: 25

Work Experience Bonus: 15 (since the mechanical engineer in the LTSSL) based on the bachelor degree.

Partner Bonus: 0

Family Support: 0

TOTAL: 135

Hi,

You can only claim for one qualification.
Normally you would choose the qualification that gives you the most points, so in your case the Masters Degree at Level 9 for 60 points.....BUT,
to claim the points for experience and a qualification in an occupation off the LTSSL you MUST match the requirements for that occupation exactly.
If the requirement says a Bachelor Degree then this is what you must claim regardless that you may have a higher qualification in the same area.
You have claimed the higher degree and immigration have quite rightly declined your application as you don't meet the criteria for the LTSSL skilled occupation you claim.
You will have to re-submit, although there's not much point if you only have 125 points as your EOI unlikely to be selected.
You will need a job offer or other method to increase the points.

Thanks a lot escapedtonz, for the detailed answer, and i wish you all the best in your live,

hence i have another question.

Why is it allowed to add more the one qualification in the EOI, as the points will go to the highest only, and also why there is option to select which qualification you want to claim a bonus on it, and it is not selected automatically to the highest qualification??

Because when i filled another EOI, i put the 2 qualifications, and automatically it has calculated the highest, and when i claimed a bonus in short skills i selected the lower qualification and it calculated the 10 points, and it supposed to be rejected by the system to select the lower qualification, and there is no thing mentioned in the operation manuals describing this case.


Thanks again
