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 ?
Did you do 3year diploma and 3 year degree ? As in d2d engineering?

Any update about this? Did you get points for this ECA?

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.
I have done diploma+degree both 3 year courses.
I got admission into diploma after 10th std which is secondary, so technically making my diploma a post secondary credential.
After getting my diploma i went for further studies to get my bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. Which was also of 3 years duration.

and I started working very shortly after finishing my studies, and still work in the same place since 5 years. Which fall in NOC level B category.

I have applied for ECA through WES. What i am curious in is, whether i get 128 points as in case of "two or more degree, diploma or certificates" or not. If anybody have same studies and have got their ECA already, please share.

P.S. Both my institutions/courses were listed in WES website and are recognised all over.

It depends how WES classifies your education. Based on the information you've provided it sounds like the diploma may be classified as secondary school education - in which case you will not get 128 points. Again, you'll have to see what WES says.

If possible, please talk to somebody who has been in a same situation, or knows somebody who has been in a situation like this. Because I have student visa for program starting this october and the evaluation won't come until half of the next month (as per the due date). If i get to claim those 128 points this way, i might not need to go for studies and can go straight for PR.

Hi,

Need help to enter my details in EE profile for the education

I completed B.Tech(10+2+4) and its equivalent to this is Education part"Bachelor's degree OR a three or more year program at a university, college, trade or technical school, or other institute"

After entering these details I'm also entered my Intermediate education details against "Two-year program at a university, college, trade or technical in school, or other institute" which seems to be giving extra 20 points to my overall CRS score.

So my question is is it correct or not ?Logically we should enter all education details in EE profile right?

Please answer.

Regards,
Anil Kumar

You need your education assessed by WES or other organization. They will give you the corresponding degree.
