    Hello all, I have been doing some research on this topic. when someone is eligible for "Two or more certificates, diplomas, or degrees."

    as they clarified but still confusing
    https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/express-entry/become-candidate/eligibility/education-assessed/read-report.html



    My interpretation : I think here they want to tell us that, any certificate,diploma or degree done after graduation of 3 or 4 years, In ECA assessment they want to see words like Postgraduate, Post-Bachelor's, Graduate etc or just simple two degrees of four years.

    then here :

    https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/express-entry/become-candidate/criteria-comprehensive-ranking-system/grid.html

    My interpretation : They want you to have one three year diploma/degree and one certificate, pretty good right ?? see next :

    My interpretation : let us read again
    "at least one of these credentials was issued on completion of a post-secondary program of three years or longer"

    your two or more is only valid if it is done after completion of 3 year program.

    secondary >> 3 year degree/diploma program>> any one/two/three year certificate/diploma/degree program

    Now you are eligible for two or more.

    but if you have any one/two year certificate/diploma/degree before that 3 year program, you are not eligible for two or more.

    something similar found on reddit

    My ECA Assessments are

    I have a 3 diploma year diploma from state technical board (india)
    which is equivalent to : Secondary school diploma and diploma (two years)
    and bachelor degree with lateral entry to second year
    which is equivalent to : Bachelor's degree (four years)
    Final will be something like this:
    CANADIAN EQUIVALENCY SUMMARY : Bachelor's degree (four years)

    or diploma (two years) and Bachelor's degree (four years)

    so by all logic, i don't think I am eligible for for two or more because its like

    10 year study or 10th >>> Secondary school diploma and diploma (two years) >>> Bachelor's degree (four years)
    or can break it as
    10 year study or 10th >>> Secondary school diploma >>> diploma (two years) >>> Bachelor's degree (four years)

    here my diploma (two years) comes before 3 year program, so it is not valid for two or more.

    secondary >> 3 year degree/diploma program>> any one/two/three year certificate/diploma/degree program
    but if get any other Postgraduate/Post-Bachelor's one/two/three year certificate/diploma/degree or Masters, I would be eligible for two or more points.
    for me, it will be like
    10 year study or 10th >>> Secondary school diploma and diploma (two years) >>> Bachelor's degree (four years) >>> Post graduate diploma/certificate(1/2year ) Or Masters (2 years)

    I have seen a few similar cases on this forum with same question and same study as mine, I took this little imitative to clear some air, but not claiming to be 100% right, may be I am totally wrong. please share your input and knowledge on this matter.

  3. hey thanks for pointing out, I know that thread, I hope/wish that it would work in that way, but after researching about it, I am still confused and not so sure about it, that's why I created this thread, so people who have any experience can share here.

    I am glad you took initiative to post here, now I know that you and I are in same boat. maybe we can clarify this issue in detail.
     
  4. Hi
    I have created express entry profile and I got points for my two credentials.My CANADIAN EQUIVALENCY SUMMARY is diploma(2 years) and Bachelors(4 years) and my credential analysis section is same as yours.So you can ask wes to update your summary and after that you can claim
    points for two or more category
     
  5. But its not that, they will asses you again when you apply after invitation. So far we have no one who confirmed that, this would work.
