Hey, did you get your case resolved? I'm also in the same situation.
I think I've responded to your post in another thread but here it is again for your ease:
Hi, so after a lot of discussion with some lawyers migrating to Canada who were stuck in a similar situation. I believe a person in a similar situation has the following options:
Option 1: Apply for ECA report from IQAS. They give professional degree status to the 5 year course. However, you will not get the report before 12 weeks from the date of delivery of documents.

Option 2: Go with the WES ECA report which states "Dual bachelors degree (four years)". In the EE profile, make two separate entries. Select the same period of education for both. That way you will get points for two bachelors (128 points). If you look at the examples of "two or more bachelors....", "Dual bachelors degrees (four years)" is covered.

To be safe, I went for both options. I made my EE profile as per option 2 and also applied for IQAS report. Unfortunately, IQAS takes a very long time to give the report. So, if my IQAS report comes before I get the ITA, I will update my profile to professional degree. If I get the ITA before the IQAS report then I will just go ahead with the WES one. I may get the ITA on the coming Wednesday as I have managed to get my score up to 465 (because of 3 years work exp.) and it is less likely that IQAS report will come before that.

Alright, thank you so much for taking out time and replying. I guess I will also do the same. Will apply for IQAS and meanwhile create a profile using the two or more certificates option.

When you say create two separate entries and put the same period of education..you mean to say I should not decide the BA and LLB? I should write it as it is? How did you write it exactly?

As in I should not separate the duration of BA and LLB?
I did BBA LL.B. So I put it as follows:
1. Bachelor of Business Administration
2. Bachelor of Law

You are basically putting each as separate bachelors. Keep the university details and course duration same.

If you have any other queries, you can join a WhatsApp group called Canada Bound Lawyers. You'll get instant help.

Good luck with your application!

It's a closed group with restricted people being allowed to join as some spammers had joined earlier. You can send me your number and I can forward that to the admin who can then add you in.

Hi! LK28,
I have a work experience of 3 years, but that was 6 years ago and since then I am self employed.
Moreover, I completed my BA and MA from Delhi University ; BCA and MCA from open university. Which all degrees should I send for evaluation!
Although, I am able to attain 67 points out of 100 in the FSW points tally, but above two are some sticky issues which I need to resolve before heading to apply.
I need to apply fast as I am approaching 40!
It will be really nice of you to answer these questions and help me to contact that Whatsapp group.
Thanks
BA

Hi, I am stuck in a similar situation. I have a 5 year law degree which was assessed by WES as dual bachelor's degree (four years). Could you please advise? If I select my qualification as a single Bachelor's degree I end up with just 407 points. Therefore, choice is between showing it as two bachelors degrees separately or showing it as as a professional degree (447 points) since law is considered to be a professional degree by CIC. I could attach the certificate of practice to strengthen my case.
I would really appreciate a quick response.
Thanks

i have a query for the same, my WES report came today and it says:

"Bachelor's degree (three years) and bachelor's degree (four years)"
I have done my Bachelor in Commerce from Delhi University (3 YEARS) and Post graduate diploma in Business Mgmg (2 YEARS)
So while entering educational details in EE profile should I enter my both degrees separately in 2 columns or just highest degree and mentionioning Bachelor degree, 3 or more year program in the level of education column. Please suggest.

Please suggest.

Regards

So while creating profile, it asks you about educational details where i filled, bachelors and post graduate diploma. In the next column it asked about ECA evaluation, in which i wrote what was provided to be by WES in the report.

Any idea about ECA for 3-year graduation (English literature) and 1 year PG diploma in computer application?
Both are from accredited universities. Is there any chance that WES will combine both these are evaluated as 4-year graduation?
