Dear All

I got mail from DIBP for visa rejection for over claiming points for education. I claimed 15 points for my education which gave me total 65 points. But they reduced it to 10 points considering my degree was assessed as Associate degree (for which one can claim 10 points). On the other hand , actually my degree comes under bachelor degree (for which I claimed 15 points).

My agent did not check that Vetasses had done mistake and claimed for 15 points.

Now I have mailed Vetassess and they have reverted that my degree will be considered as bachelor degree instead of Associate one and they will send us corrected letter.

My concern is , will DIBP reconsider my case , as that was a mistake done by Vetassess.

Please advice

I've not seen such a case personally, however, you have a very strong case, as per me, and i would suggest to consult a MARA agent ( a new or your old MARA agent) and see what options are available.

Once you get the Vetassess letter, attach the same and send an email to the department
I think they should consider your case favorably
But all said and done, You did make an overclaim of points on the date you lodged your visa application, which cannot be denied

Cheers

Vetassess is the assessing authority. Dibp is for migration matters . I hope vetassess is strong enough to plough through

He might be able to do this only if VETASSESS provides a letter confirming their mistake.
Having said that, it is still overclaiming when the letter clearly mentions that it is an Associate degree..

I guess a good MARA agent can clarify and take your case forward. Suggest not to take any action without proper consultation

Once your visa is finalised there is no chance to change back the status of your visa application. However, there might be a chance that if you have given the review rights in your refusal letter, you can lodge the review with AAT to refer back the application to the department for reconsideration.

you are right, with the initial outcome from Vetassess, it's clearly stated associate degree which can claim 10 points only, it's clearly over claimed.
