I would suggest you to email IQAS and get it sorted out rather than taking opinions from this forum. Only they can help you tbh , kindly mail them.

Thanks for your suggesstion Sir,. I have already emailed iqas on 31-01-2020. But I got only one reply on 07-02-2020 that "the info you have provided in email has been forwarded to IQAS for review.|"

After that i sent another email to remind. But Unfortunetely NO RESPONSE from IQAS from the last 45 days.

Clearly says bachelor's in your case, and would be clearly stating professional degree in your friend's.

So you have a bachelor's equivalency and your friend has master's.

And as @Jraci said, take this to IQAS rather than debating here on the forum.

Eca reports are normalally not what we assess.

My friends pharmacy degree Eca report s Sam as mine

" Four year bachelor of Science degree with a focus in Pharmacy "

I said her Eca is considered professional. Pls check There r 6 professions which are considered as Professional degree and pharmacy, optometry is among them.

Then your friend should've selected bachelor's degree equivalency too.

See, bachelor's degrees in optometry, pharmacy, law etc. can be assessed as professional degrees, and have been in many cases I am aware of. In such a case, the report clearly mentions
a bachelor of science degree with a focus in optometry/pharmacy generally compared to a first professional degree in optometry/pharmacy.

and the phrasing on your report clearly mentioned your credentials equivalent to a bachelor's and NOT a professional degree. Hence choose a bachelor's.


The "read your report" page tells you to compare your equivalency in the first column and make selection along the row. If you are looking at putting your degree there, hard luck.

I have completed B com( regular) , M com ( distance with 54 %), pgdm ( autonomous college - regular) [ it is mentioned in order as completed ]
WES gave me two or more certificates
If i send it to CES or ICES , can i get masters for M com, which one would be more better or should i wait for IQAS ( is there any chance of reduction in processing time after May 2020)

IQAS is closed till May 19th.
CES has a timeline of around 15 weeks from delivery of documents.
ICAS has a timeline of about 40 weeks from delivery of documents.
ICES has a timeline of about 20-25 weeks from delivery of documents.

All these can give you a master's equivalency for M.Com.
