Australia qualification 5 point claim question

Hi all,

Firstly thank you for all your posts. I have got a lot of good info from this forum.

I finished my 2-year full time Master degree in Dec 2008, then applied (Feb 2009) and RECEIVED my Graduate visa 485 in Jan 2010, under the occupation assessment as "Life Scientist nec".

Holding visa 485 until May 2011, I calculated 120 points (due to IELTS improvement to four 7s) under my "Life Scientist nec" occupation assessment (50 points at that time, priority group 5). So I lodged a paper-based application for Visa 885 in May 2011. Since then I have been on my bridging visa and waiting till now.

So my question is:

When the process time for my 885 comes, am i eligible to claim the 5 points of Australia Qualification ( 2-year full time Master degree), while at the time i lodged application, my qualification is already finished more than 6 months (finished in Dec 2008, applied 885 in May 2011)? (Note that I was a 485 holder at the time i lodged 885 application).

The reason I am concerned is because I am confused whether or not the "Australia qualitication within the past 6 months at the time of applying for Visa 885" rule applied to me as a 485 holder.

I would very appreciate if you could give me some info on this.

Thank you very much
