  1. Hi, I applied for ACS assessment with event type as RPL on March 23rd and got my result last weekend. I am confused with the ACS result. Following is the message "Your skills have been assessed to be suitable for migration under the 263111 (Computer Network and Systems Engineer) of the ANZSCO code". "Your Bachelor of Technology (Electronics & Communication Engineering) from XYZ University has been assessed as comparable to an AQF Bachelor degree with a major in computing". However, only the last few years of my employment have been acknowledged. One of projects that I was working on, spanned 3 different companies (due to transitions). But ACS has considered only the employment duration of the last company among the three. As a result only 2.5 yrs of my employment is acknowledged, though I have 6.3 yrs in total. Could someone please help me understand how exactly is ACS assessing work experience and if I am eligible for applying for 189 visa. - Jana

    Change in ACS assessment?

    Hi, I recently heard that, since May 1st 2013, ACS has changed the way of assessing applicant's work experience, especially applicants with Non-IT educational qualification. E.g. ACS is reducing 5 yrs of work experience from the total number of years for applicants with Bachelors Degree in Electronics and Communication. I'm an engineering graduate with 6 years of work experience and I've got IELTS of band 7 in all, I applied for ACS. However, as I have a bachelors degree in Electronics and Communication, ACS is going to acknowledge only 1 year of my experience. This would make me fall short of the points that I get for my work experience. Could someone please confirm, if this is true and if this has been formally notified by ACS? Regards, Jana
