    Submitted mine last April 4, 2014 through 189 at 60 pts. ACS said my course BS Computer Engineering (section 1 school) is not relevant sa 261111 kaya 4 years binawas sa experience ko. I am now 6 months short to 5 years bracket.

    @cgm That is odd. I am also a Computer Engineering graduate on a section 2 school pero ACS credited my course as closely related sa occupation. Although instead of bachelors, diploma lang ang equivalent so I was only able to claim 10 points sa education. Meron ba silang sinabi why they deemed hindi sya related? Malaking kabawasan din ang 4 years of experience.

    @rara_avis My school is section 1 and equivalent to AQF as Bachelor's Degree. Yung sa work experience ko naman, walang questions pero sinabi lang na hindi daw related yung course ko sa occupation. Sinubukan ko mag-email sa kanila pero sabi daw tama yung assessment. Tempting na mag-revalidate pero wait na ang siguro ako. Anyway, 60 points naman sa 189 and naka-SS din sa VIC. Anyway, in about 6 months time, magiging 5 years na rin yung qualified work experience ko. Pero sayang din yung bawas na 2 years. :)

    Updates

    Prior April 28th 2014, there were 108 slots left for 2611 ICT Business & Systems Analysts.
    As of last night, there are 93 slots remaining.
    So, only 15 invites were issued last Apr 28th for our occupation.

    I think these 93 slots will be allocated for the next 4 invites (May and June) before the July 1st reset. However, they seemed to be inviting 70 pointers for now with the last person invited was an EOI submitted last April 25, 2014 @ 70pts.

    Also, backlogs for the 6 high number EOI codes have been almost filled with recent invites issued for 60 pointers who submitted their EOI last March 2014.

    189 Visa slots for May will be the second highest compared within the last 12 months

    @cgm Hello, when you say slots left for business analyst, when ang start and end date nun? And usually, how many months nila finifill iin yung number of slots na yun? It seems like for business analysts, madaming nag apply. Currently, we are still gathering documents for ACS assessment so I'm very interested re the slots open per job description. Thanks.

    Hi,

    I was hoping you can help me assess if I will have a positive assessment given my current situation.

    I graduated with a non-ICT bachelors degree. Instead, I graduated with a business management degree. I have 4 years experience working a SAP systems and business analyst.

    I hope someone will respond and get to help me. Salamat kababayan!

    you can only submit EOI for your nominated occupation..
    if you think you also qualify for other occupations, you should have separate assessment for those occupations..

    No you can’t submit an EOI for business analyst kung wala kang assessment from ACS as you will later on be required to provide documents (positive assessment) once you get invited.

    You can apply for another skills assessment but u have to be cautious na indi sia magcontradict sa previously submitted assessment since same assessing body yung incharge sa application mo. Otherwise baka magka integrity issues ka with the case officer. By the way, ganu na ba katagal ung unang assessment mo as ICT project Manager? And for what reason bakt mo gusto magpaassess as ICT Business Analyst. May mga states namn na open for sponsorship ang Project Manager ah.

    @Ajsam i have both ict ba and ict project manager assessment kasi my documents and work responsibilities were broad enough to cover both. i did the ict ba first then after 3 months applied for network engineer pero acs suggested ict project manager. hope thos helps.

    submit an eoi if you have a positive acs assessment kasi may cause you big issues later.

    @cgm
    Hi, I'd like to seek your advice. I'm currently consolidating my documents for ACS Skills Assessment. I graduated BSIE (Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering) from Mapua, and have 4 years Business/Systems Analyst experience, and 2 years Project Management experience. I'm also a PMP (Project Management Professional) credential holder.

    What are my chances of getting a positive (suitable) result with ACS? Would you recommend the nominated occupation of Business/Systems Analyst? Or Project Manager instead?

    Yung visa na na-grant sayo is Subclass 190, meaning may nag-sponsor na company sayo upon visa application palang?

    I'm worried kasi IE ang course ko, which may not be closely related to these nominated occupations. And nabasa ko dito na babawasan nila ang number of years of experience mo if ever. And paano mo malalaman if Section 1 or Section 2 school ang Mapua?

    Sorry madaming tanong :) Salamat! :)

    @J_Oz naiisip ko na nga magpa remark ng speaking e. kaso 6 weeks, tapos i think kailangan ko iwithdraw ung EOI ko pag nagparemark. sabi kasi sa IDP site:
    During the period of remarking your test results cannot be used to apply for a university or to be sent to an immigration office.

    Hehe. Pero sa expatforum ung 60-pointers roughly 4 months nag hihintay e. So baka okay din na magpa remark? Wait ko yung invitation rounds results bukas pag 65-pointers pa din baka magpa remark na ako. Or retake.

    @mmm_85 yung visa ni @cgm is subclass 190 - meaning may state na nagsponsor sa kanya which is VIC.

    About sa kung anong occupation ang ipapa-assess mo, ang 2611 (Business/Systems Analyst) ay nasa SOL so that means pwede ka mag apply for 189. Kaso lang may backlogs itong occupation na ito. Ang ICT Project Manager naman, wala sa SOL, so you have to look for a state na magssponsor sayo. Kaso at the moment, nakahold ung sponsorship ng states for ICT related occupations. For instance, yung VIC magoopen pa tentatively on January 2015. Ini-close nila yung State Sponsorship nila for ICT occupations starting October 1.

    Sa section ng schools: http://pinoyau.info/plugin/page/accredited-schools

    Actually madaming considerations e.. Since non-IT course ka, kailangan mo din icheck yung number of units mo na ICT related.

    Hello guys, quick question lang po! Meron po bang na assest dito ng ACS for ICT 261111 na graduate po ng BS in Computer Science?

    Cause I am checking now the related core ICT units... may mga ilang pagkakaiba kasi..
    I understand po ang Computer Science is mas suitable po sa 261312 or 261311 (Programmer) pero ang experience ko po kasi ay nasa ICT Business Analyst at Technical support.

    I'm just wondering kung ano po naging result from ACS kung meron na po tayong kaibigan na nakapagpaassest dito?

    TIA po at good luck sa atin lahat!

    @Stoked0419 Hi, I am a computer engineering graduate pero ICT Business Analyst ang occupation ko. Basta computer related ang course mo and closely related yung job responsibilities mo sa nominated occupation and you have sufficient years of work experience then wala dapat problem. Even yung mga non-computer related ang courses pero business analyst ang job experience nakapasa naman sila sa assessment through the RPL route.

    yes, i think babawasan yan ng ACS ng 2 years. My degree was assessed as diploma lang din but during that time di pa nagbabawas ang ACS ng work experience so nacredit yung 5 years and 4 months experience ko as B.A.
