Will be designation or my EDU have any impact?
Yes, ACS won't recognize your degree (Biotech) as ICT. You will have to go thru RPL route which would result in 6 years of deduction from your experience.

Your biotech qualification is neither related (or not closely related for sure) to software testing nor software engineering, so deduction should be the same as you already had in your current assessment- 6 years?

I know. I am fine with that. But can I apply as 261313?

Like Keeda mentioned above, "If you are into automation, you should succeed easily.", Yes you can.

You need to show your profile in your RnR letters which matches 261313 description.

Yes you can, provided your skills are a match with Software Engineering as well, and I know automation testers could succeed with this re-assessment. See the links I shared earlier.
