Australian qualification obtained through exemption

I am currently a member of CPA Australia but in Ghana. When I applied for the EOI I excluded that qualification. But I just realised that I met all the study requirements before the membership was awarded.

I want to know whether this would suffice for an Australian qualification. In my EOI I scored 70 points.
Would this have enhanced my total points?
Would the CO consider this additional qualifications?

I am aware that scrutinise all claims made in the EOI with evidence ypu provide. If this scrutiny leads an under declaration i hope should lead to an enhanced score after the actual visa application.

Thanks for the responses.

If you are saying that you studied in Australia for at least 4 semesters and qualified with a degree then you may be eligible for 5 points if you meet the Australian Study requirement. How ever, you talk about exemptions. If you studied a 2 year course and had 2 or more exemptions there is a good chance that you don't meet the Australian Study Requirement. Suggest you consult with a reliable Registered Migration Agent and find out for sure.

Thanks. That is clear. I was just wondering if I could gain extra points.
