Question How can I claim 10 points for 3 years consecutive work experience in past 4 years

Hi All

I have 4 years of experience in total after Bachelors and 1 year Masters degree from Australia. My post bachelors experience is actually split. I worked for 2.5 consecutive years and then went for my Masters in Australia. I returned back and now I have 1.5 years for experience after that.

Regarding GSM, I want to claim 10 points for my work experience i.e for the category which states that you must have worked for past 36/48 months.

My question is that for past 48 months I have 34 months of work experience because I did 12 months masters from Australia and it took me two month to find job in my home country. So am I eligible for these 10 points because I did not discontinue as such but I took this break for my studies (continuation of profession). Does any one else have had same case, can any body comment on this please?

The regulations are laid down by legislation and so are not able to be bent for situations like that and 3 years experience in the past 4 does mean that.

Actually thats what my question is about.

I agree that Legislation should not be bent for exceptional cases.
However going for further studies is usual occurrence for many skilled applicants so this should be treated as something positive rather than "penalizing" for it.

So what I want to understand is that cases like mine are usual occurrences which can be true for many other highly skilled people.

So if legislation doesn't allow for cases like these then we might not get these towards immigration, for which we can do nothing much. But if thats the case then I would be really surprised that legislation missed some thing which is as usual/basic as that ? :P
