Hello Friends,

I just wanted to know about WES ECA.

What is the meaning of "Secondary school diploma and diploma (two years)"

because as I guess Secondary school diploma is "diploma graduate in Canada" and another diploma in engineering is "post graduate diploma".

please correct me if I am wrong.

also, how much point can be considered for Saskatchewan for "Secondary school diploma and diploma (two years)"

Thanks

No - secondary school diploma does not mean diploma in Canada. Secondary school diploma is high school.

So you get points for having one diploma only.

How much point can be earned from WES assessment of "diploma and diploma (two years)"


A: EDUCATION AND TRAINING Points

Master’s or Doctorate degree - 23
University Bachelor’s Degree (minimum 3 year program) - 20
Trade Certification (equivalent to Saskatchewan journey person and approved by the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trades Certification Commission) - 20
Degree, diploma or certificate (minimum 2 year program) - 15
Degree, diploma or certificate (minimum 1 year program of study, or equivalent to a trade certificate. - 12

India(10secondary +2higher secondory) = Diploma Graduate in Canada

and

India (Diploma Engineering 3 Years) = Diploma (2 years) in Canada.

so, when you complete WES, it will be "diploma and diploma (two years)"

My ECA by WES says

Canadian Equivalency Summary: Batchelor's degree (3 years)

Credential 1)
Secondary school diploma and diploma 2 years

Credential 2)
Batchelor's degree (3 years)


Do i qualify for "two or more certificates, diplomas or degrees" ?

If not why ?

Secondary school isn't considered a diploma. What do they say on the first page of wes where they mention the overall equivalency?

Credential 1,
Canadian Equivalency: Secondary school diploma and diploma

Credential 2,
Canadian Equivalency: Batchelor's degree 3 years

My view is, if i wouldnt have had credential 2, then my overall Canadian Equivalency Summary would have been Secondary school diploma and diploma.

But since i have credential 2, then i should qualify for 'two or more diplomas or degrees'.

Where m i wrong technically ?

You only have a bachelor, it's clear. Secondary school is not a diploma. You can only claim points for bachelor degree

you actually didn't even need to send your secondary school information for assessment, they're kind of pointless once you get a university degree

Do you get any points if you completed a Canadian Highschool Diploma?
You won't get any additional points. Your education in Canada needs to be post secondary to get additional points.
