Question ACS skills assessment

Hello users,

I need help regarding my ACS application from you. I have a basic ICT degree which was in the area of computers and was highly technical. Then I did an MBA with a major in systems & marketing. Both of these are equally relevant towards the occupation (systems designer) I am applying for. However I am cognizant of the fact that ACS looks primarily for an ICT degree only.

Hence in the PASA General skills assessment form, I have mentioned both the degrees and have also created an annexure letter listing all the subjects in each of the degrees that are relevant to the occupation I am applying for. Can someone please let me know if this is going to be an issue or anything else that I should be doing?

Best thing in any application is to make sure you follow the application form and complete it fully and accurately as well as anything extra you want to add.

I am no expert on what the ACS do Fazali but as the OP has indicated, ACS see most relevant qualifications as an IT degree or one with significant IT content which will determine what may be looked for in experience to supplement a degree with limited IT content.
A good look at the ACS site may reveal that they see RPL as being for where less than degree or other appropriate education is held.
