You need to bear in mind that students in North America typical stay in High School education until 18 not 16 as in the UK.

By that reasoning A levels are equivalent to that last 2 years of a North American secondary education hence A levels are not classed as post-secondary.

This was an interesting thread to read. I am in the process of applying to APEGA (Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta). I have to use WES and my APEGA member number to have my qualifications assessed. WES will then give me a report and tell APEGA if my qualifications are equivalent to Canadian qualifications.

I have a BTEC National Diploma in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, I also have a BSc and MSc but it sounds as though WES will effectively disregard my BTEC which is disappointing and considering the level of maths on that BTEC I think it is definitely worth more than just 1 semester!

But my opinion on the matter is irrelevant really...

Perhaps the 12 week wait vs 20 days is because they do a more thorough assessment..

Hello guys and girls, just been reading through this myself, I have a BTEC Level 3 diploma that I did through BT, it just a 1 year course however. Do you think this will get me 90 express entry points if I get it done by CES?

I hope so, if I get those 90 points it gets me up to 474! I had to leave Canada after 2 and a half years last month because my employer never got there finger out to sort me a LIMA despite saying they would!

Have a good day!
