Hi,

My 261311 Analyst Programmer was assessed by ACS where they have only indicated my B.Tech on the assessment letter as AQF standard.

I also sent ACS my MBA degree during assessment but they didn't even mention it because it's not relevant for 261311. On SkillSelect if I select qualification for MBA as "Masters in Science, Business or Technology" then it prompts me on last submission screen that MBA is highest claimed degree and whether 1) either it was done in Australia, or 2) assessed by assessment body. Both these are unmet for my MBA, it was done outside Australia and obviously not assessed.

In this case, do I select "Other - Non AQF accreditation" as the qualification for this MBA on SkillSelect?

Why this doubt: My intention is to declare "MBA" as it tells me on EOI screen to declare all secondary and tertiary degrees. At the same time do not wish to say "YES" on SkillSelect to things which are incorrect black and white. MBA is truly categories under "Masters in Science, Business or Technology" but that leads to the other issue in submission screen.

Thanks!
You can only select Bachelor as Bachelor in Science or Technology and MBA as others

One more query. My ACS letter date is 25th Sep 2019. Even after that date, roles and responsibilities, company, designation everything remained same. So can I claim experience point till current date? Or till ACS letter date only?

Can I mark “related to nominated occupation” as “YES” even after ACS letter date and claim points till date and keep the till date blank?

Or I can only claim experience points till ACS letter date and have to mark experience after that in a separate entry with “related to nominated occupation” marked as “NO”?

Thanks!

Yes you can claim extra experience if that is
1. Assessed by ACS till assessment date
2. You are in same role and company with no changes

Just keep the end date blank of that particular job in EOI
