What is the ‘after month’ mentioned in thr ACS report?

(Deepika Arora) #3

After month is January 2013. So does that mean that only 5.4 years of experience will be considered and I will get only 10 points? or there will be another deduction in experience years?

The following employment after January 2013 is considered to equate to work at an appropriately skilled level and relevant to 261313 (Software Engineer) of the ANZSCO Code.

As per the ACS assessment, you can only claim work experience after Jan 2013 as relevant to claim points.

(Deepika Arora) #6

So I will still get 10 points for my experience. Right?

Yes, as per current work experience points slab and your relevant experience falling between 5-8 years, you can claim 10 points.
