Debra, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Have you tried the online assessment to

Customer
How are you?
Customer
Actually I have a problem
Customer
Let me explain in brief:
Customer
I am from Pakistan and I have done B.Com (Bachelors in Commerce 2 Years) in 2010 and the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants UK(United Kingdom)) My ECA report from WES has given Equivalency as (Bachelors as Diploma 2 Years) & (ACCA as Bachelors Degree 4 Years).
Customer
I started Job in 2013 December as a full-time employee and have been doing till-to-date. Now I am confused that while submitting my Express Entry Profile should I declare my full experience from 2013 (After B.Com that was done in 2010) or (After ACCA that was completed in 2018)?

Debra, Expert

You would include whatever makes you have the most points. If you are relying on some degree then you would include all of the information about that degree. If it doesn't add to your score you don't need to include earlier educational experiences. You should try the online assessment tool here:

https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/come-canada-tool-immigration-express-entry.html

Does that help as a starting point?

Customer
Actually the point is that Canada has rated my Pakistani Bachelors as a Diploma so I was confused on that
Customer
You mean to say that I should charge my experience from 2013 in my Express Entry Profile?
img

Debra, Expert

What I really mean is that you should try all the different ways and see what the outcome is in terms of the points and then choose what works best.

Customer
Outcome becomes bright when I claim complete work experience
Customer
But I am afraid that at the time of application processing Canadian authorities may raise an objection
img

Debra, Expert

You don't have to give details of any earlier education if it's not bolstering your point score.

Customer
It is not about education
Customer
It is about work experience
Customer
I short I want to know whether all the experience is acceptable?
img

Debra, Expert

Yes I believe is is all acceptable and you can certainly include it all.

Does that help more?

Customer
Alright, thanks Debra
