Default Mr. Miller - question please on education

My wife has a 3 year UK degree (bachelor of laws). She also did a year at
law college. She studied at school for 13 years. That means that she has
17 years in total of full time education.

Why is it then on the education assessment that it only looks at if you have
a one year degree, or 2 year degree, but then the next step up is 3 year
diploma (not university) with 15 years full time education. Is my wife only
going to get 20 points for her education or could she argue that her 3 year
degree is equivalent to a 3 year diploma, especially as she easily qualifies
fore the 15 years full time education?

Also for me, if I have 13 years full time education at school and then do a
2 year degree part time, will I then qualify for 2 year degree with 14 years
full time study (even though that 14th year was no full time as the course
would have been done part time?).

Sorry if these questions sound dumb, but we are really confused.

Thank you.

A single Bachelor degree with at least 14 years of education nets 20 points.

22 points are given for either 2 Bachelor level degrees or 3-years
non-university diploma. Why a 3-years non-university diploma gets more
points than 3-years Bachelor degree? Because Canada has huge shortage of
skilled trade workers, while oversupply of those with Bachelor degree.
