Hi Folks

I have a query with respect to the ACS assessment, here are my details

Age: 29 - 30 Points
Bachelors Degree: B.COM + M.COM (Part time/Correspondence) 15 points
Diploma Degree: GNIIT (3 years Software Engg. course from NIIT Pvt. Ltd.)
Work ex : 7.9 Years Fulltime IT Software (Key Skills : Business Intelligence) 10 points :fingerscrossed:
PTE A: Planning to Appear in Mid June (10 points :fingerscrossed:)

My question is since my degree is B.COM I will be considered as a NON-ICT Professional, however I do have a NIIT degree with 3 years full time course of software engg so will this be considered by the ACS as a ICT- Major?if it is considered as major I can be assured that I will secure 10 points of skilled employment.

My work experience is post my bachelors & NIIT degree so I hope that it should not be a problem.

Also I would like to know if I will have to do a qualification assessment from VETASSAS?

Your help would be highly appreciated as I am in a dilemma whether I should go for ACS with RPL or without RPL

Thanks Guys.

Request someone to help :mad::confused2:
I am unsure if GNIIT Diploma will be considered by ACS as a relevant ICT Major degree/diploma. You can see this link to see the details.

But be sure that if you do not have a relevant degree there are various levels of years that are deducted from your total experience. I was a BCom grad and my 6 years were deducted from my total exp.

Hi guys

I also have a similar question on this.
My qualifications are B. SC(G) Mathematical science from Delhi University, with GNIIT from NIIT and PG as MCA.

Will ACS consider my Grad i.e. As relevant ict major grad. I suppose they should consider as its only the name i.e. is not revealing that it is not related to information and communication technology(ICT) but the course content is all related to ict.
Please advise.

Also, will they be considering GNIIT in anyways?

I suppose MCA from GGSIPU, Delhi will be considered as ICT major? Please advise.

Thanks Danav :)

As you are from the same background and got +ve assessment, can you please let me know what all documents you uploaded for MCA.

Only Degree & Consolidated Marksheet will be enough for this or marksheets of all semesters need to be given along with Degree & Consolidated Marksheet? :confused:

Hi,

You can refer to the following post, given on IMMI website.

Referring to this post, you come under the category of Any other qualification and you will get 10 points for it.

ACS compares course contents of the nominated occupation and if your marksheet includes major computer courses, you should be fine.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bachelor Degree

To receive 15 points for having at least a Bachelor degree, you must have met the requirements for an award of Bachelor degree by an Australian educational institution or your qualification must be considered as at least comparable to a Bachelor level at Australian standards.

Note: To receive 15 points for a Masters degree, you must also have a Bachelor degree completed in Australia or overseas, or the Masters degree must be considered as at least comparable to Bachelor degree level at Australian standards.

Australian Diploma or Trade qualifications

You can receive 10 points for an Australian Diploma or Australian trade qualification.

Any other qualification

i uploaded everything individual marksheet, consolidated marksheet and Degree. But i only assessed my Masters so claimed 10 points. You can assess bachelors as well or just bachelors (if its closely related) for 15 points.

Hi,

This leads to more confusion, I was under the impression that I will get 15 points for my bachelors degree which is B.COM

The only confusion for me was if I will get points for Skilled employment since I have experience of around 8 years and if I go via RPL route they will deduct my 6 years of work-ex, hence I was thinking if I can show my NIIT's Degree for them to consider that my qualification can be considered as ICT Major since it includes all the courses.

Well if you go with your GNIIT degree which is a diploma, if assessed positive you'll get 10 points for education.
With diploma you'll lose 5 years of experience which would give you 5 points for experience.
This is the best case scenario is my view.
But thsi would leave you stranded at 55. You should work on getting 20 in PTE to qualify for 189.

Not a fan of 190, it's always touch and go given it much depends on State nominations. Have you checked which skill you closely match to? You can then check if the skill set is on SOL. If not on SOL then 190 is your only choice.

Thanks again Danav.

My Grad is B.Sc(G) Mathematical Science from Delhi University, Operational Research, Computers & Maths were the major subjects.

It's only the name that seems not related to ICT major but the course content is all computers.

Will it be consider as ICT major & I would be eligible for 15 pts?

Bachelor of Commerce and GNIIT

Hi Ravi,

I am in same situation as yours, I have got Bachelor's Degree in Commerce and GNIIT.

I would be sending my application for ACS evaluation soon and had few questions. I will be thank full to you if you can guide me as you have already been through this.

1) Is GNIIT Considered as ICT Major Degree OR is it considered as Diploma and Vendor Certification.

2) if it is considered under Diploma and Vendor Certification then 5 Years of Experience would get deducted

3) Did your Professional Practice Last Year of GNIIT got considered in Experience

4) What all Documents one has to submit for GNIIT ? Is it Just Transcript, OR Course content, Transcript PP Details and Certificate

5) What about points in Qualification, since GNIIT is in Addition to Bachelor of Commerce. can i get 15 points for bachelors degree

I am writing in great hopes that people on this forum will be able to help me

Regards
Victor

Hi!

I got my Gniit assessed.

1. It will be considered as AQF Diploma with major in computing.

2. Diploma

3. For getting your professional practice considered in experience you need to get roles and responsibilities letter and that would be considered.

4. Final all semester marksheet and certificate

5. I am not sure about the points, I did my masters after my bachelors so in my case I got 15 points. Not sure about bachelors + Gniit.
