I need info on the dependent and also main applicant for Australia PR. From this forum I got to know that I fall under ICT Minor and non-relevant job with my education so 6 Years will be deducted from my experience. So, now I am planning to include my wife as main applicant who has 9 years of IT experience as a tester and she studies B.sc computers(full time), M.sc IT (correspondence course). So, how many years will be deducted from her ACT assessment?
Also, what are the disadvantages being dependent from work point of view, as I will be on dependent visa.

In the best case scenario, if her qualification is recognized as ICT major and relevant to her nominated skill, 2 years will be deducted. For all scenarios, refer to the post below.

Make sure to check if her skill is in the SOL or CSOL.

Nothing.
