Hi Everyone,

Just because SMU is not evaluated from WES. I am thinking to send my MCA to WES for evaluation. Do you think, I need to send my bachelors as well for same? I have done Bsc. IT from SMU and MCA from Madurai Kamaraj University.
As per WES website, you need to send your bachelors if you are sending documents for MA, MCOM or Msc. but they have not mentioned any thing for MCA.
Harsh, If you can please let me know what was your result as I can see your bachelors was from SMU and Masters from Amity which was recognized by them. In your evaluation, did they say Bachelors not evalauated and Master recognized or something else?
Seniors, Kindly help and throw some light on this.

Regards

Thank you for your enquiry.



We will review qualifications from Sikkim Manipal University provided that SMU was UGC-recognized at the time of your admission. Additionally, if the qualification was completed through distance education, the program must have been DEC-recognized at the time of your admission.



It is your responsibility to ensure that your qualification meets our requirements.



Please contact us if you require additional information or clarification.

hi Everyone - Thanks for rolling up communication on this forum.

I have written to SMU for WES related query and waiting for response. Does anyone know if there is some way to follow up with WES for SMU case.

I have completed my Degree in Year 2012 ( Time when SMU was recognized by UGC & DCE) so i believe WES should recognize degree for that period.

Thanks again and Please advise further

Seniors and all - if SMU is not responding then how we can approach them to reply in some way.

I am in Canada for couple of years on WP and want to apply for PR. Education evaluation is key factor in my PR application to get a call through Express Entry process. if SMU reply positively and/or any Evaluation agency recognize SMU degrees then i would get sufficient points to get call through Express Entry program.

as i said in one of my previous post - "I have completed my Degree in Year 2012 ( Time when SMU was recognized by UGC & DCE) so i believe WES should recognize degree for that period.", someone should evaluate SMU degrees when UGC and DCE recognized SMU.

Please help. Thanks in advance

Hey

WES does not recognize the degree from SMU because SMU has not taken ACITE approval yet.

And the issue regarding the degrees awarded by SMU-DE during court's stay order is now approved as per the court order and UGC already have announced the same on their website with "special leave to apeal" judgement by the supreme court of india.

To all FOum members - Please advise if some one has evaluated SMU degree from ICAS.

Thanks for providing info. so far i hear no one who has successfully got SMU DE degrees evaluation from ICAS but still ICAS response is supportive.

Can any one provide the SUM - UGC and DEC reorganization documents during year of 2009/2010 - 2011/2012. Earlier these docs were available on SMU DE website but now nothing as such is there.

i also sent emai to university controllers regarding the same but no Response. Anyone Please help.
