Cool Claiming Points for Degrees

hello ,

First of all a big thanks for having this forum and helping out people.

I have my skills assessment done .

The bachelors degree and masters degree have been assessed to equivalent to corresponding AQF degrees . However 4 years have been deducted from my work experience before when the skill met date is calculated . I still have more than 8 experience thereafter so I am not loosing any points there , but am I eligible to use the 15 points for educational qualifications , given the fact that my degrees haven't been used against skill met date ?

So can I use 15 points for exp and 15 points for education ?

It also perplexes me that 4 years have been used for skill met date .

Appreciate your answers .

From what you have posted, yes.

It also perplexes me that 4 years have been used for skill met date.
Why not consult the assessing body, ACS? Were your qualification/s IT- related and/or post employment?
