Hi guys
I am planning to start my immigration process so i have to go for ACS assessment first for software engineering.

I am working in a same company since January 2011, but the problem is i finished my bachelors degree in December 2013 and in May 2016 i moved here in Australia but continue to work with same company 40 to 45 hours every week.

So what do you think can i get positive assessment or not?

Will appreciate your replies thanks.

You need work exp, doesn't matter where you do. If you got a degree closely related to ICT occupation, then yes your 4 years work exp will help you get ACS Assessment either major or minor ( 2 yrs or 4 yrs deduction).

Thanks for your quick reply.
So how many years of experience ACS will consider?

Hi,

As you were working during your studies your skill level met date will be same as your degree completion date. In simple terms you can claim experience after December 2013 provided that you have enough evidence to support your application. Make sure your employer/supervisor puts both of these locations and dates on reference letter.

No if you are continuously working since Jan 2011 then they won't deduct 2 years.

As far as I have seen, only work exp after education counts. So, he has only 3.5 years. Others can tell better.

Hi,

Maybe I couldn't make it clear. I replied his question where he asked whether they deduct experience after skill level met date.

Skill level met date is same as degree completion date in his case as he has been working since 2011 and his degree completed in 2013.

Zaback, so from 3.5 - 2 means 1.5 years 0 points :/

Yes if your degree is major. If your degree is considered minor which requires 4 years work experience, you won't even get ACS assessment.

What's your degree ?

Hey mate,

You have been working since Jan 2011, are you? If yes then your skill level met date will be the date when you finished your Bachelor.

Note* ACS recognises pre qualification experience just for skill level met date. Skilled employment is counted after skill level met date and when degree completion date.

Exactly, all of my replies assume that he has Bachelor degree with ICT major.

No!

Experience is deducted only to meet required skill level which is 2 years. To meet this skill level, your 2 years experience can be before or after your qualification.

If you have been working during your studies then your skill level met date will be when you completed your degree and 2 years.

In your case, your 2 years experience was completed in December 2012 but your degree wasn't finished at that time so your skill level met date is same as your degree completion date.

If your degree was completed in December 2011 then your skill level met date would be December 2012 because at the time of degree completion you had only 1 year experience.

Hope it helps now.

Ok cool, I didn't know ACS considered pre qualification exp. In that case, he will have have enough yrs of work exp for ACS assessment and he should get a positive assessment in Dec 2013.

Since, you will also have 3.5 years work exp starting from Dec 2013 as explained by MohAdnan, that means you will be eligible for 5 work exp points as of now with potential 10 points in Dec 2018 which will be too late. You will need 5 points from Spouse or 20 English points or something else for an invite unless you get the new 262112 ICT security specialist which could possibly have lower cut-off points.

Else most ICT occupations for 189 visa has a cut-off points of 65 and for 2611 it is hitting 70.

I would also suggest lodging the EOI by end of Aug 2017 for a good chance of getting invite this year. With the way things are going, you better have a good cut-off date unless you manage 70 points then it's fine.
