Hi I have two questions:
1) Are you getting both BSc and MSc evaluated by IQAS or just MSc? Had you got just MSc evaluated and not Bsc I believe you would get points for masters and saved time as getting more than one degree evaluated takes more time.
2) Why did you choose IQAS and why not WES? You would have got your ECA by now.
1) I sent both B.Sc and M.Sc as I was not aware we can send only masters. However, I feel I would have sent both even after knowing so that IQAS is aware of my undergraduate too. And yes, as per the info I received it takes more time for evaluation of more than one degree. It is said to be 30 days approx.(Not sure how much delay though)

2) Most of the Indian masters are considered as P.G diploma. The reason why i chose IQAS over WES.

There is one more body ICES people are talking about. But I am not sure. If you did not send your documents. Check with other available options. Choose the one which suits best for you.

From what I have inferred looking at the thread is that you would get your ECA from IQAS in 5th month of sending docs from your end. However, May I please know the number of credentials you are getting evaluated and also from which universities are they?
Its like 6-7 months now. My documents were delivered on 7 October. I am still in final review.

So I have been calculating days in a while. Earlier people used to get ECA in 100-120 days.
And today is 149th day after my documents were delivered. (How do I know? I am not counting :p:p I made an excel sheet to record my timelines).

I am 26 years old. So I won't be losing points.. However, if someone is losing points due to age or any other reason. I would suggest them to send docs to IQAS only when they have 9-10 Months left to lose.

There is someone who is in final review since 6th Feb if I am not wrong. And still in final review.
I am at that stage since 7th Feb. There was change in status date to 26th Feb ( I now seriously think they did upload soft copy on 26th, but there is system glitch wherein the status fluctuates between complete and final review without displaying the report)

I contacted IQAS after the change in status date. They say its in FInal review and we did not upload your documents.

"I guess on 26 Feb your docs actually went for final review." (This is what I guess)

I got change in status date on 26th Feb like you. So we are on the same page now..

Okay, that seems to be reasonable guess. Lets wait for them to upload report as we have been doing for long now :D

Status changed to Final Review - 7th Feb 2019
Status change date - 22nd Feb 2019

I really have been trying to be patient through this whole process, given that at the end of the day, our control over it is limited. But my frustration is beginning to build now! I hope everyone else is coping better than I am.

I feel the same some time.. But in the end I have a lot of work to do and less time for my family. I started keeping cool and checking update once in 2-3 days.

You may receive your ECA soon. Best of luck.

Yes, it is frustrating for everyone here.
It is still a long journey. ECA----ITA---medicals---PPR---COPR---Landing in Canada---Finding suitable work and settling down...

Guys! One day you will remember all these stages. Stay calm and enjoy whatever life offers...

You are right Karran. My journey has been a little longer than most of the guys here. I came to know about express entry when the scores dipped to an all time low of 413 during the start of 2017. At that time, I just had close to 6 months of experience plus my degree issuance was pending apart from a lot of issues related to missing documents, name difference etc. As the time progressed, I kept on filling out the gaps/holes here and there and now everything is sorted out except for the the ECA and 3 years experience completion which I would be completing very soon. As you mentioned, now when I glance back at that time, I always remind myself of how that struggle has made me come a long way from the scratch.

I've just begun the process.

Filed on 14 Feb

Documents 20 Feb as confirmed by FedEx

Transcripts reached 27 Feb as confirmed by university courier service.

Reading all the comments here, I feel like I'm in this for long. Anxiety taking over about AOR1 and 2. With some luck I'll get my ECA report before my b'day, will file EOI immediately.
