Bachelors Degree vs Honours Degree (Rejection Chances)

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, 

My name is Rana Shahjahan. I have applied for SC189 Visa on 12th October 2018 after receiving an invitation on 11th October 2018. I have a question or an advice as I think I am in a mess and my application might get rejected. Can anyone here please help me on my matter. I would really appreciate it.

Points Claimed: 75
Education: 15
Experience: 10
Age: 30
English: 20

Now the issue is that I have a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science(Honours) and ACS has assessed my degree and AQF bachelor Degree with a major in computing, but somehow due to mistake I submitted an EOI with Honours Degree in Science and Technology. I am able to receive an Invitation on the basis of this EOI and later I submitted the VISA with same degree option as well.

Recently, one of my friend told me that my degree has been assessed as Bachelors not Honours, so because of this I submitted Notification of incorrect answer(s) to show that I selected Honours by mistake. Now I am afraid that because of the this issue and that EOI has Honours degree and Visa have Bachelors degree, they might reject my VISA application.

Can any experience person guide me and help me on this matter. What are the chances of Rejection in this case?
I am really tensed.

Thank you so much

Best Regards
Rana Shahjahan

Bachelors and honours degrees are awarded the same points, so you have not over claimed points and most likely do not have a problem.

I see, thats really comforting .. I also heard that if your EOI and Visa application both have different statements then it could an issue as well. 
As, my EOI mentions Honours Degree in Science and Technology and Visa application now says Bachelors Degree in Science and Technology after submitting my notification for mistake form 1023. 

Do you think that in any case this could create some issue ?

Hi all, I am new to this forum, so can anyone advise on my SC189/190/489 EOI profile, with no work experience!. My points breakdown, as follows; 
 
(All other criteria rightly in place) ;-
 
Age (30 points), Education - Masters (15 points), Superior English PTE A - 90/90 (20 points), Skills Assessment - Positive, Overall: 65 points WITHOUT SS.
 
ANZSCO Code: 233512 (Mechanical Engineer), EOI Lodged for SC189, SC190, SC489.
 
EOI Date Of Effect (DOE): 17 December 2018.
Looking forward to SC189/190/489 Nominations!
 
If someone could clarify / suggest these for me please - a) Effectively evaluating my 100% chances of early invitations for all 3 Subclasses, b) Invitation Timelines for NSW / Victoria & other States.
 
Also, as anguishing as it may sound, my MARA Migration Agent has chosen "ANY" against the "States" column, instead of being more EOI Specific (if you know what I exactly mean). Kindly advise whether or not this affects my application. Hope not, God willing!. 
 
Feeling slightly concerned much. 
Thanks so much well in advance. Greatly appreciated indeed. Cheers! 🙂 🙂

I have never done this for a client.
