Good morning Everyone,

I have not post for a while but I think I need to respond to this. I maybe banned depending on how you see it, but will say what I believe is right and just. Some people have burning desires to help others achieve their goals and can only think of better ways to get it done.

The suggestion made by alphadoor then was in a bid to help people get information easily. I can remember then a lot new members on the thread asking some questions that were already answered and we kept referring them to read the thread from page 1. Even goodmemory had same issue if I remember correctly. It is not easy for people to read all previous thread. And search capability on the thread is not that developed or specific to immigration.

At the time we were already putting in a lot of time helping others with information and could not even create or move the thread as suggested. It would have been a lot of work. We however continued to help others as best as possible.

And for your information, the main reason the thread is not growing or getting the kind of hit you believe it should be getting is because "success stories" has reduced. And that is due to Australia's increase difficulty which you would have noticed if you had been visiting the thread regularly. How does it benefit people when a thread grow to 1 million page self. When people can't search easily. New comers would need to read from page one. It is well.

You are with the yam and the knive. You have the power to hide or allow people to view post. But at least I have post this. Maybe one or two people will see it before it is hidden, if it will be hidden.

People, we still have good people in this country that are not interested in personal gains but with burning desires to help others. But the problem is people always doubt their intentions. While some others are *only* interested in personal gains.


justwise:


So this is what has being going on here since 2017? And today many of you are pretending as if closing this thread was end of the world while you planned to move it away from nairaland 3yrs ago.

I have another question please.

There are two questions asked in the form: level of education & Level of education(Canadian equivalent) as shown on ECA

For OND it's Two-year programme at a university, college, trade.....

What would be the best to pick for HND. Is it

"Two years"

or

"Bachelor's degree OR a three years program at a university. college. trade ...."

What do you advise, so as to avoid misrepresentation.

Thanks

joo2018:
Q1: Both

Q2: HND1 1st semester start date. He should record actual dates. That has no bearing on the years the certificate is evaluated as.

Adeyemmy24:


Very Correct! That was exactly what I did while creating my profile this time last year and it was accepted.

Good evening all. PLease help!!!

I am asking this question on behalf of a friend. He has evaluated his OND and HND with WES but in filling the express entry form he is not sure if he is to fill both OND and HND as part of education history.

WES evaluation is as follows:

Summary - Diploma (two years), Diploma (Three years) and a postgraduate certificate (one year)
OND - Canadian Equivalency - Diploma (Two years)
HND - Canadian Equivalency - Diploma (Three years) and a postgraduate certificate (one year)

Q1) Should he fill both in the education history.

Q2) For HND, duartion is 2 years after Industrial Training but WES evaluation is 3 years diploma and a postgraduate certificate. What would be the start and finish date to fill in the form. Is it Industrial training start date? or HND1 1st semester start date.

Q3) If he is to fill only HND as in the education history, what would be the duration - is it the OND start date to HND finish date

Thanks all.

you have OND, May be try TRA as the occupations assessed by TRA are far less competitive. Unless if you already have your 20 points in English and can get at least 75 points altogether.

Otherwise ICT biz analyst o, programmer o, all na the same for ACS right now. Competitive and on prorata.

odundimple:
Pls i need your advise on the best way to go about this, i need to be to able to claim as much points i can get for my working experience:
i studied computer science and graduated from a federal polytechnic in 2002 , i had 1 year IT in 2003/2004, did direct entry into federal university to study computer science, after 200L we had SIWES prog in 2005(its like an IT prog) for 3 months, in 300l in 2006, we had another 3 months IT, in 400L in 2007 we had 6 months IT and then graduated in 2008, went to serve in 2009. i am currently working with an ICT company since 2012 to date.

With the possibility of ACS deducting 2 yrs from the experience, relying only on my experience in my current place of work might not give me the required points i need to get an ITA, not even with the competition with the prorata occupations.

i cant get reference letters from those places i did IT and wasn't even paid for all the periods i did the IT progs but i spoke to a senior friend who has event management company about giving me a reference that will cover for all those IT periods before 2012 when i started working with my current company, and she has agreed to it.

The issue is i dont have any other proof to back this up except for the reference letter she will give me. Pls how do you think i shld handle this given i need all the points i can claim for work experience?

Hope having all the experience in one letterhead will not look scattered cos the periods are not back-to-back? for e.g 1st IT after my ND is 2003/2004, 2nd 3months IT is 2005, 3rd 3months IT is 2006, 4th 6months IT is 2007, then NYSC and post is 2009 - 2012.

Also, i have been reading that its possible to write IT experiences while in school as part time jobs, how true is ds pls?

Your candid advise will be appreciated, Thanks

Your MCSE or HND can be used ( check your transcript to be sure it would be assesed as ICT MAJOR )

they are both diploma and either one u use will fectch you 10 point.

ACS requires 5 - 6 years experience before you can have a positive assessment when using a diploma qualification and those experience years cannot be claimed.

You can use any of MCSE or HND whichever is earlier.

Hello Azy123, I'll love to clarify something, I have HND in Electrical Electronics and I intend to use my MCSE certificate as the information for the Education and it's indicated in their ACS outline. What will you advise me?

What I know is that with your degree you will get positive assessment from ACS. But the issue is ACS occupations are highly competitive and 75 points is the least that can assure you ITA.

In comparism, EA occupations , generally speaking, are less competitive.

IF you can get a positive assessment with computer science degree and experience from EA, it is actually a better and faster route to ITA. Otherwise get your 20 points in english first to give you a chance at getting ITA and assess with ACS.

bbtundey:
[b][/b]

If i get you right, do you mean i might get a negative response from EA since i don't have a degree in Engineering? Yes, but I dont know if anyone have tried that before. So, you might want to try it or comb the web for a similar scenario. Because in this case computer science and your job experience are actually very related.

Re Cap: I have a BSc in Computer Science with 5yrs+ working experience as a field transmission engineer which aligns with Telecom field engineer (313212)

pls advice, does my profile align with 263111 without work experience or 313212 with work experience

I don't want to mix this up pls

As the others have pointed out. As far as ACS is concerned Certifications will have no bearing on your nomination. I initially did MCSE because my Bsc. is not computer related. I wasted time going for the certification and it eventually cost me a lot.

Even if you studied something else you can get a positive outcome from ACS and in your own case you studied computer science.

The alternative of going through EA need to be verified properly for someone who did not study engineering but with 5 years experience.

Humanshadow once wrote

- Quote

"Please note that when submitting your application to EA, you have to nominate an occupation that you will be assessed on since it is CDR. As long as you have a degree in Engineering, it usually does'nt matter what field of Engineering you nominated provided that you can prove to EA that you have relevant work experience in that field. In writing my CDR, I used my MSc thesis and the other two from the work I did in the profession I nominated. Use professional Engineer as @Bellong mentioned. "

-Unquote.

In this case she studied computer science not engineering.

I'm really inspired the kind of insightful information shared so far. God Bless you all.

I'm planning of getting into the PR race and information read has really got my spirit up. Had a BSc in computer science from OOU in 2010, and had a 5 yrs experience working as a field transmission engineer on Airtel network under Ericsson and Huawei respectively.

Presently, I'm planning on going for my CCIE/MCSE (cloud infrastructure) training and certification in India, after which i wanna apply for Computer Network & System Engineer or Telecommunications Network Engineer under the subclass 189.

To the experienced ones, kindly advice on what chance i stand to get an ITA? or the better subclass to apply for.

It seems there is nothing you can do about your education points so lets look at other things - Experience, English and Partner point ( If married)

Current point

Age....25
Degree----10
Work Exp----5
English---10 (IELTS 7,7,8.5,8.5)

Total was 50..


- Possible point -

Age....25
Degree----10

Work Exp----15

- as you already know 8 yrs of experience is required for this point, ACS need to remove 5 points from your experience. The solution is

1) re- package your reference letter so that the description is according to the ANZSCO description I can help to review it when you are ready. The 2 years will then be acknowledged.

2) You will need to include pre-graduation part time( at least 20 hours per week) experience for 3 years before your graduation date.



English---15

- Give PTE a try. With this your IELTS score you will get 20 points in PTE

[b]Partner Point
- 5 points

- I don't know if you are married or not but it is worth exploring. You can get 5 points from this.
even if you are not married you can use de facto relationship if the relationship is more than a year and u get some evidence to show that it is indeed more than a year.

Total will be 75

Just keep pushing bro, as you can see it is still possible.

I understand you, it can be frustrating when things are not working out.

Like samge said, give us some more information.

Did they acknowledge all the 10 years to be related to your nominated occupation?

Whats your total point currently.

Have you maximize English point?

Give us a break down then we can give a more practical advise

A state nomination or regional nomination is also not out if the question.

Congrats Aussielyfe.

Please my Ogas

I really need help and advise now on my next step...

I have a BSC in computer science and have about 10 certified year in the IT domain.

I had early tried applying for the Aussie PR, but i had my points cut (especially for degree and profession verification by ACS because i had my degree from a Nigerian Private university i was given an Advanced Diploma equivalent and also they cut my years of experience to just 2), which made my overall points depreciate. I was quite upset that i gave up. By the way profession opted for was IT Business Analyst.

I have recently rekindled my zeal to pursue this (by force we must relocate from this naija). Please what do you advise and what are my options.
