Dear All,
I am posting in this forum for first time. I am looking out for a help on the below. Kindly assist

I applied for ACS skills assessment for "skills" as a application type and "Software Engineer" as a ANZSCO code.

ACS is providing me an opportunity to change my application type to RPL as my degree (B.Tech - Textiles Technology) not meeting ACS educational requirement.

"Category of Non-ICT Diploma or higher and would require 6 years of relevant work experience completed anytime in the past work history plus a successful RPL application"

Also they are recommending to change my ANZSCO to administrator codes (2621xx).

My Details
-----------
B.Tech (Textiles Technology)
Experience ( 11 years in IT)

My questions are,

1) If I go with RPL after changing my ANZSCO code, howmany years, I would be eligible for points?
2) If ACS says, my degree not meeting ACS educational requirment, will my degree earn points for qualifications category under skilled independent/sponsored visas ponit system?
3) If i have a successful outcome with RPL and points eligble for 5 years, will I be able to apply for 189 (or) 190 visas? if not, any other specific visa for RPL?
4) Will ACS consider my MBA (Information System) which I did through part time during my work experience tenure?

Kindly help me with my above quesries, that would really help me to finalise a next step.

Regards
Vel

1) RPL will require 6 years of relevant experience, so only any experience above this would be counted for points
2) Your degree can still be counted for Qualification points if it meets the required criteria (e.g. equivalent to Australian bachelor degree)
3) Depends on whether you still have enough points for either 189 or 190 visas based on your English, age, etc.
4) Don't know, sorry. You may have to ask them to assess it to find out.

Thanks so much for your response.

Regarding the below,

"Your degree can still be counted for Qualification points if it meets the required criteria (e.g. equivalent to Australian bachelor degree)"

How do I find out whether my degree meets required criteria, is there any assessment required for my degree to be considered for points?

Regards
