ACS evaluation - how do they do it?


I have a 36 months certificate for Software Programming (learned subjects like java, linux, C#, and SQL) awarded in June 2006. Some vocational certificates like MCPD, OCA, and MCTS.

I started working as Technical trainer from 2007 till March 2008, and Analyst programmer since April 2008 - till date.

During my work, in December 2009 I started my B.Sc. in Information technology and finished it in May 2011 (I was able to get lateral entry to 4th semester based on my 36 month certificate) and was awarded degree in May 2012 (finished studies and final exam between Dec 2009 - May 2011) .

I know, I have a different than usual situation, but I want to know if anyone would be able to explain how the evaluation happens?

I feel like I am eligible, because my 36 month certificate and vocational certificates makes me educated enough to work in IT field. However, I also feel, I might not be able to get enough point, because in one of the online document posted on ACS website, it says that anything before Bachelor will not be considered as experience as well as 2 years after completing the education will be considered as skill learning period.

Hoping for someone to explain me and help clear my doubt!

You mean, since May 2012 (when degree was awarded, not May 2011 when I wrote my final exam) till date will be considered as skilled work?

Therefore, it comes to almost 3 years if I apply after May 2015.

For Age I will score 30, English 10, Education 15, Work 5, so the total comes to 60.

Looks like, at this point of time I will just have to wait!
