Claiming points for Community Language

Has anyone here claimed points for Community Language by providing a letter from your university stating the language in which your course was conducted?

I have a certificate from my university ( I believe of equal standards to an Australian uni) that the medium of instruction the course was conducted was in Filipino (Tagalog) AND English. Would you think this would be a valid evidence or should the course be solely taught in the one of the listed community languages?

Thanks!

Immi usually require things to be very specific Nick, one way or the other and not a bit of both and as such, I'd expect at minimum there would need to be a clear definition of how much of the course was in Tagalog.
I'd not be relying on it being accepted either if it means you need it to get sufficient points.
Even if you hear from someone who has used Tagalog in the way you are hoping, all cases are different and it may be of some use for you to make an email enquiry of Immi, being quite specific, year by year of the instruction that took place.

Just a guess, but I'd reckon if your senior years were more in english than Tagalog, that would rule your claim out.
