Is ACS assessment better with Australian ICT Degree?

Hi everyone,

I hope you are well and I hope someone can help me with my query. I have finished preparing all my documents and wanting to apply for ACS assessment under Systems Analyst

Here's my background -
[LIST][*]Diploma - non ICT did in 2005[*]Job experience (International) - 2004 to 2017 (10+years)[*]Bachelors - non ICT did in 2014[*]Australian Masters ICT degree - 2019[*]Post-masters, Full-time Australian work experience as System Analyst - 1 year +

Since my education is from a non ICT background, I have prepared a RPL so that I can get my points for international work experience.

My understanding is that since I have an Australian ICT degree and work experience, I qualify for a positive skills assessment.

My question is - while submitting ACS, should I give my Masters degree? If yes, then is there a chance that ACS will not consider my RPL or prior experience and I lose all international work experience points?

If I do not submit my Masters degree and ACS also rejects my RPL - then I know that I will get a negative skills assessment straightaway.

I am confused if I should show my Masters degree and risk losing all points for international work experience (but in a way guarantee a positive assessment). Or is my understanding wrong here?

Thank you for reading and all your help. Really appreciate it.

From what you have posted RPL looks like your best strategy; might not be.
May I suggest that you consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for a detailed analysis of your case?
