Default EOI Declined - Need advice on PAR

Hi,

I am new to this forum and am hoping someone can help me. As the title says my EOI has been declined after being selected from the pool. I am an IT professional with more than 7 years experience(4 Years in US and 3 years in India) and had claimed 115 points with 10 bonus points. Though I have done my Bachelors and Masters in Computer Science, my EOI was declined because the List of Qualifications Exempt from Assessment only recognises qualifications awarded from my awarding body from 2002 onward. MY Bachelor degree was awarded in 1999, which is outside the relevant dates.

The net result was I had less than 100 points with no bonus points awarded and my EOI has been declined.

The Immigration officer wrote

"If you wish to have your Bachelor Degree recognised, you will require a NZQA Pre assessment (PAR). This assessment will determine whether the level of your qualification is comparable to the requirements for ICT Professionals, as set out on our Long Term Skill Shortage List. I will be able to hold your EOI open until we receive your NZQA pre-assessment result. Please note that this is at your own risk and there are no guarantees that the assessment will come back favourably".
Any advice will be highly appreciated.

Does anybody has any idea what would be level for a Bachelor's degree in Computer science awarded in 1999 by Sri Venkateswara University, Andhra Pradesh, India?

Nobody outside NZQA I would guess, and only them once they have assessed it.

I can't help with that at all. NZQA will assess your degree on a module by module basis to see if it matches with NZ equivalent degree
Perhaps look up the course modules for the same NZ degree and read if your own degree matches.
