    Question po, kapag po ang nakuha sa assessment is:

    Your Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from Mapua Institute of Technology
    completed ** has been assessed as comparable to an AQF Bachelor Degree with a Major in computing.

    anu po ang dapat ilagay sa education history sa EOI? Bachelor Degree in Science o Bachelor Degree (other)? tapos ang course po na ilalagay is still Information Technology? tama po ba na dapat magrefer ako sa assessment ni ACS?

    Thank you!

    Hi guys. Help please. I think I lost my passport and I’m scheduled to take my PTE exam this February and my student visa’s expiring this March. I have to take the exam to be able to lodge my Grad Visa. Anyone knows if the Consulate does expedite passport replacement? Kasi the last year when I renewed, mga 1.5 months sya and I never asked if may option to rush it. :(

    @Cassey Question lang po. Nung nagrant yung PR nyo onshore, nung umuwi po ba kayo ng Pinas, hindi na kayo hinanapan ng PDOS or anything pagbalik ng AU? since hindi naman talaga nagawa yun on the first place. Thanks! :)

    @dy3p Hinanapan kami sa immigration ng CFO sticker nung pabalik to Au. Nagpabook ako nung PDOS bago ako umuwi sa Phils, ang kaibhan lang hindi na ako umattend ng Seminar, nagbayad lang ng P400 sa office nila. Sabihin mo lang na nagstay ka na sa Au para hindi ka na magseminar. Tsaka dala ka ng proof na nagstay ka nga sa Au. :)

    @ana_s It’s best to go to the consulate para malaman mo kagaad kung ano yung gagawin mo. Hindi ba pwedeng iresched yung PTE mo since valid naman yung reason mo.

  • zballesteroszballesteros JapanPosts: 120Member
    hi guys ask ko lang sana, civil engineer ako (main applicant) and my girlfriend who is my defacto is a registered nurse.
    pero di pa sya nagstart makapag register sa aphra at di p din nakakapagbridging. pwede ba ko mag claim ng partner points?
    or kelangan nea munang mag bridging bago ko makapagclaim ng points?
  • CasseyCassey Melbourne, AustraliaPosts: 2,803Member, Moderator
    @zballesteros Hi, you can’t claim partner points for her. The only way for her to have a positive skills assessment is by doing a bridging program and by becoming a nurse in Au first.

    @HeyThereMaddie not sure kung may nag-advise na sayo ng ganito re: COE from your previous company, but I just want to share yung ginawa ko. One of my past companies closed down na & hassle kontakin ex-boss ko & dating HR for COE with JD. I read somewhere here in pinoyau in past posts na you can get an ex-colleague to write you up a COE with JD, better kung mas mataas syang position sayo when you were working there together. Importante kse JD kse that's one of the ways they assess kung maca-count yung years of employment with that company under the occupation na inapplyan mo. So I got a friend from that company who happened to be a manager then, wrote how he knew me as a colleague, and a bullet-point list of my JD. At least 5 points advisable ata, if I'm not mistaken. Take note, the JD should match your nominated occupation.

    Ayun, nag-work naman. Approved V189 & now living in Brissy for >2 years now. =)

    I hope that helps. PM me if you need clarification or if you need a sample. Good luck!

    @seestra Hi! :) Baka pwede po makahingi ng sample "Detailed COE"? Same scenario, about to get my detailed COE from my previous employer, kaya lang the HR needs approval from my previous manager.
  • seestraseestra BrisbanePosts: 68Member
    @HELEN28 Sure! Hagilapin ko lang & I will PM you shortly.

    Hi @seestra, @RheaMARN1171933 or anybody can you advise me on this matter, here is my case Nakagawa na ako ng Statutory letter at approved na sa ACS with 6 years deduction and currently working with the same company for 11 years now but in my 11 years, 6 years duon is the same JD that matched with my nominated occupation, in my 7 to 11 years nag iba yung position ko but somehow na i-relate ko naman yung current experience/JD ko sa nominated occupation na inilagay ko sa Statutory letter ko nung kumuha ako last year, may problema ba sa point system sa DIBP pag nag claim ako for my work experience?
