I would share my experience of 2 ACS skill assessments I did.
SA-1 263213 ICT Systems Test Engineer
Date of submission : 19 July 2019
Date of Approval : 04 Sep 2019
I lost one of my mark sheet and it was difficult to get it from my university (Calicut). One case office contacted me multiple times to submit the same. But I said, it was complex process and requested to consider an exception. So at last, she approved after 8 weeks of waiting.
My wife also applied in the same date for Software Tester 261314 and she got the approval within 5 weeks by submitting all the docs.
Later we got to know that, we both cannot apply for SC189 due to these job codes. So my wife applied second SA skill assessment on Dec-1st and she got the positive response in the second week of Jan due to holidays.
SA-2 Computer Network and Systems Engineer 263111
Date of submission : 24 July 2020
Date of Approval : 31 Aug 2019
Compared to last year, this time we had to submit so many docs due to last year ACS docs requirement. I arranged the mark sheet which was missing in last ACS application. I was ready with all docs and submitted the docs as below. Even though I’ve 16 years of experience, didn’t want to show first 2 companies (4 years); so mentioned only about 12 years experience with current company.
Payslips (all from July 2008 to June 2020)
Form 16 (2008 to 2020)
PF statements (2008 to 2020)
Bank Statements (2008 to 2020) - HDFC. Requested online and I got it within a week. Marked the salary details in yellow color
R&R in Company letterhead (Last year, I submitted only the notary attested one. This time, I checked with HR and they issued after I prepared the sheet and got it approved by my manager)
So with all these docs, there was no questions asked by ACS and got the approval within 6 weeks.
Thanks all for your suggestions and all the best for the new ACS SA applicants.
