Am I eligible to get points for Educational qualifications???

Hi everyone, currently I'm preparing paperwork for 189, but there's one thing that makes me really confused and I hope someone could give me some advices on that matter.
Two years ago I graduated at RMIT with double degrees Master of Commerce/Finance. Last year, I applied for Skill assessment from CPA, they required me to undertake, of course, another 5 accounting subjects to pass the assessment. After that, I undertook a short course, which is Graduate Diploma of Accounting with 5 subjects, and now I already passed the immigration assessment from CPA.
The problem is, I'm not quite sure I can be awarded 15 points for my Master degree or not, because with that degree I couldn't get a positive result from CPA, I had to undertake another short course to fulfill CPA's requirements, but I also can't use Graduate Diploma of Accounting to apply for that 15 points.
Can someone please tell me if I can use my Master degree to apply for 15 points under Educational Qualifications category?

You get the points regardless of the major. The points are awarded to the highest level qualification you have. So you will get the 15 points for the masters.

Passing the skill assessment does not provide any points towards migration. This is simply a visa requirement.
