Raj to Canada

The first step to be eligible to apply under the Canada’s Express Entry scheme is the Educational Credential Assessment. ECA is mandatory for all the primary applicants who do not hold a post-secondary Canadian degree. ECA is recommended for the spouses of applicants

The ECA is done to evaluate the academic credentials of the applicants and see what the foreign degree is worth in Canada. The CIC has designated several organizations, but the least expensive and widely recommended one World education services (WesCanada. . The post is about the steps in getting an ECA done

Please note that Do not You need an ECA for your certificates. If you have a bachelor’s degree, you can get ECA done for it, but you might be able to get both of them evaluated and get more points. It is mandatory for M. Sc applicants to get their bachelor’s evaluated even if they have Masters You wouldn’t need an evaluation of your 10th and 12th grade mark sheets

Getting your ECA done is very easy. You have to get your documents right. It is your responsibility to get all the required documents, because WES is very strict in this regard

Step 0: The tool will show you what the outcome of the evaluation might be. This should be used for reference only and not as an official assessment of your credentials

Step 1 Understand what you need. You can see what documents are required by using the below link

Every country has a different procedure. There are different requirements for different universities. There are requirements for people who studied in an affiliated institution. Please go through the link to learn more

Step 2 Request your university to give you the transcripts. You can check your university website and call them to request transcripts

Step 3 You need to create an account in WES. Follow the steps on the site to complete the process. The link is below

CIC will be able to check your ECA report online

The ECA done for Canada Immigration is valid for 5 years

Send the documents to WES, your institution should do the same. Use a reliable service. The link in Step 1 contains information on how to send your documents

WES receives your documents and the status will change from waiting for required documents to reviewing them in progress

WES will either accept the documents or request more documents if they need to. If the documents were not received in the format specified, they will reject them and you will have to start from Step 1 again. Be careful while sending the documents. Try to get it right the first time

After WES completes an evaluation, they will send an email to you that says “Evaluation Completed” and send a hard copy of your report to the address you specified. You will be able to view the report online. The below image shows how your online account would look once the evaluation is complete

ECA - WES - Evaluation Completed

You can see the tracking number of your package in the “Report Shipping and Tracking” section of your WES account at the end of the business day. The tracking facility is only available for those who choose International Courier as the delivery mode of the ECA report. Standard Mail does not have tracking. The report shipping and tracking section would look similar to the one shown below after your hard copy has been dispatched

ECA - WES Report Tracking

The image below shows the route my report has traveled

ECA Hard Copy - Shipping Route

Depending on where you live, you will receive the hard copy of the report within a week

WES - Sample ECA Report

I made a payment to WES on June 14. I have a 7 digit number WES reference number. I applied for transcripts on June 20th, since my friend did it for me. He got the transcripts back from them on July 1st and sent them to WES. The status of the documents was changed to “Documents received – Review in progress” on July 9. I sent a note to them using their online contact form asking why there was no update on my application and the status changed to Evaluation in progress on July 17th. I received a mail in my inbox that said that my evaluation was done. I was able to view a copy of my report online and receive a tracking number at the end of the day. You can use this number to locate your package and sign up for notifications. I had my credentials evaluated in 8 business days. Excellent service and very recommended

It is easy. You just need to do some research. I recommend the Canadavisa Immigration Forum for any information on Canada Immigration. The link is below. It is the holy grail for current and potential immigrants

Anna University

Landing in Canada

  1. Thanks for the wonderful post Raj. Very useful
    I need to choose a package for fees. This is for Canada Express Entry. Please tell me what to do

    Which package should you choose?
    Wes ICAP is a name for Wes ICAP. Evaluation storage transcripts
    The course by course with the grade point average
    Evaluation of documents by $150
    $30 for duplicate reports
    Wes basic
    The course by course with the grade point average
    Evaluation Cdn. $115
    The upgrade from WES Basic to WES ICAP Service is $35

    You can reply
    • You should not pick any of them. If you followed the instructions in the post, you would see the eca package option. You should choose

      You can reply
      • I am Raj. I have a bachelor’s degree from the institute. Is there any hope from WES? Is ICAS considering my graduation?

    • I have done a degree in fien arts after 10th. I have doubts about sending my 12th mark sheet and certificate to WES

      You can reply
      • I have a degree in fine arts after 10th. I have doubts about sending my 12th mark sheet and certificate to WES

  2. I got it, thanks, hope you reach Canada, I wish you luck.

    You can reply
  3. Thanks for the information. I have a couple of opinions about WES

    Did you send a comprehensive transcript or all individual mark-sheets for each year you studied engineering?

    The certificate and mark-sheets are required for evaluation
    WES evaluation requires a college certificate or mark-sheet

    I appreciate your quick feedback as I am in Pakistan for my vacations and can do all the documentation myself

    You can reply
    • The consolidated mark sheet is only issued by my university. You should ask your school. WES requirements vary from university to university

        What should be written in the WES account in education is a topic that is discussed in the account

  5. My wife received an ECA. She has a masters degree from Annamalai University in India, which is considered a bachelor’s degree by the Canadian Education System. Our points have decreased from 472 to 433. Can we get the documents re-examined? Is it possible to get it considered for a Master’s Degree?

    You can reply
    • I don’t think they will “re evaluate” it and even if they do, they will give you the same equivalency again

      Did you only get her Masters? Did you not do a preliminary equivalency check on the WES website?

      You can reply
      • We got her Bachelor’s degree evaluated but the problem is with her masters degree. She was considering her masters in India as well as a master’s degree in Canadian education system. We don’t understand why it is considered a bachelor

        I am waiting for my ECA result and I don’t know what to do with Express Entry now that our points have gone down

      • It is not enough to get an ITA at the moment. You could get 600 points if you apply for a PNP

      • Express entry is different from applying for PNP. I need to know how to apply for PNP, and what documents I need to have. How long does it take for the whole process to happen?

      • Not really. It is not different from express entry. You can check the link for more information. You can find useful information in the Canadavisa immigration forum

        You will get a letter from OINP if you have 400CRS. I will update you on how to proceed once you get this

      • I came across a post similar to my wife’s ECA report while I was on the forum

        The Canadian equivalency degree is a bachelor’s degree and a bachelor’s degree

        The Master of Arts is a four year degree
        The Bachelor of Arts is three years

        I am wondering if I should choose a program of three or more, instead of a bachelor’s degree, when applying for EE

        Our points go from 433 to 465 if I select two or more certificates. My wife is the primary person applying

      • Thank you so much, Raj. Our points went up from 433 to 465. You are a rock star

    • I am a distance degree student and I would like to know if you consider distance degree Tofiq is at gmail.com

  10. I asked WES to evaluate my post-graduate and post-diploma in hotel management from the UK. They have added my documents to theirs after they received them

    My uncle arranged for my transcripts from my college in India, where I completed my degree, and then sent the package to WES. Why did they ask for the final examination certificate?

    I have already provided them my last two qualifications

    You can reply
    • Very unusual. Did you try to ask the COE using your body?

      You can reply
      • Not yet. This will be like starting from the beginning

        I was wondering if I could request WES to not evaluate my documents. I can fax the copy of my final examination certificate to them

      • The documents are not required if you have added the details from the high school. Send a note using the below form. Tell them that you only need your most recent credentials to be evaluated

      • Thank you Raj for your advice. I used your link and got a reply. The document was removed from the list and I have begun my evaluation

        Thank you for creating this. It helped me from the beginning

  11. Question A
    The Canadian EquivalENCY SUMMARY is for a Bachelor’s degree

    Canadian equivalency is adiploma for 2 years
    Canadian equivalency is a Bachelor’s degree

    I was wondering if I should choose two or more degrees in my EE profile

    The analysis portion for my high school graduation
    There is no mention of the line: institutional statistics

    For my bachelor’s analysis portion
    There is a mention of the Institute of Territorial Statistics

    Is that a problem?
    I was granted a Canadian equivalency for both my secondary degrees

    You can reply
    • You can ask WES to mention the Canadian equivalency on the top of the page if you contact them

      You can reply
      • I have to think. You have to contact WES and ask if the University is on their list

    • I’m not sure if this thread is still active, but I found this

      Specialization: event production
      Canadian Equivalency is a two year degree from a non recognized institution

    I have questions. If you help me, I would be thankful
    I got my evaluation done through WES. I just looked at something without thinking about it. I am going to CANADA with express entry. Does the IMMIGRATION CANADA honor the USA? It would be very difficult to apply for the transcripts in India again, as I am working in a different place

    Can I apply for the program now?

    I would appreciate if you could answer the questions
    The WES evaluation will indicate the name and date of birth on your academic records, according to the document checker section on the WES form. Date of Birth is usually not present on our certificates. How would they verify the date of birth?

    Mudit posted a query on March 15 about sending the degrees to WES
    I have a question about why we need to send the degrees ourselves. The University has already issued a part of the transcripts

    You can reply
    • DOB was present on my degree certificate. I have not come across a case like yours before. You can send a passport and write a letter to them requesting that they use the DOB on PP

      Even though the university would include a part of the transcripts, you need to send a copy of your degree certificate from your end. This is a requirement for all Indian applicants and can be found on the WES website

      You can reply
      • We can club them in one big envelope, but do we have to send them separate? There will be two sets, one containing the transcripts and the other the degree certificate copies
        We can send them both in one big envelope. To save money

      • That is how it will be done. Don’t write your WES reference number on the transcripts envelope

  19. I read a lot about you. I am in a bad situation
    I have a degree from the premiere institute in India. I applied for ECA

    I just received my report which stated that the Xlri is a non-recognized institution and that the credentials are not comparable to a completed Canadian education credential

    How is this possible? How can it be a non-recognized institution? IIM and IMT friends got Masters from WES

    What should I do? I dropped them a mail in their contact form

    I am very tensed and need help. Waiting for your response

    You can reply
    • I answered this on the forum. You can ask the Director of evaluations why this happened

    You can reply
    • You pay the same fee if you send both. Good luck!

I want to know if you can show me a sample of how it looks and if my friend can make the same one. I know I am too much but I am posaible

      You can reply
  23. MyMBA was done from an institution but the main university is otherwise. The University was not mentioned in my application. Is it correct?

      • I have a score of 5.5 in speaking. My overall score is 7

        I want to know if I have to take the exam again to apply for Canada PR

      • You are not eligible for Express Entry if you have 5.5 in one section. You need at least 6 in each section to be eligible

  26. I’m Hi,

    My last name has been changed. It is just initials in transcripts. The question is if the name in your documents is different from your current name. Should I say yes or no? I don’t have a different name but I have an expanded initials. What is the name of the report?

    I don’t have any other relevant categories to choose from, can I choose Master in Science as my degree? I have a bachelor degree certificate. It is all in one certificate

    Should it be Anna University or Anna university of technology?

    I have sealed University transcripts, but not the degree. Is it necessary to get a degree certificate from the University in a sealed envelope? This link is related There are required documents at www.wes.org/ca/eca There is a sealed envelope

    You can reply
    • I wouldn’t recommend using old transcripts. Suggest you get a fresh copy and submit it

      No. That option is for legal name changes. You should not select that option. You can mention your first and last names on your passport, which will be printed. I submitted the bio page of PP to show my expanded name and it was printed on the ECA report

      Mention whatever is mentioned in your degree certificate. You can choose Masters if you choose a sandwich course

      Anna University will do fine. I chose Anna University because I have a degree in computer science

      Read answer 1. Get a new set of transcripts. You have to submit a copy of the degree certificate from your side

      You can reply
      • I have a similar problem and you can help me solve it

        My name in Transcripts does not match my name in my passport, will this affect WES?

        Is it possible that I send only transcripts to WES for ECA or should I include a passport?

      • You can mention your full name in the WES application form. WES will make changes so there are no issues

        If your name is on the passport but your transcripts mention another name, WES will mention it in the ECA report

      • I am Raj
        Thanks for your replies, I am sure it helps many of us
        My name in certificates andTranscript has initials and my passport has expanded one of them

        I will use your name on credentials. ”
        I need to send a copy of my passport with the transcript
        Is a letter of explanation enough or a copy of passport?

      • Your passport should have your name in it
        Better that you do. I did the same thing
        I wrote a LOE to avoid confusion

  29. Raj! I stumbled on your website because I am confused about whether I need to apply for my transcripts. I understand that you don’t need to tell me anything.

  41. I submitted my pakage to WES. The Certs need to be sent by the person applying for the degree. WES had to send the Transcript via the Uni. I asked the Uni to send my Cert and Trans to WES.

  42. I followed all of your tips and sent the documents to WES. I received an email from them that they accepted my degree but not the marksheets. The reason is following

    The document was not issued by the institution that was responsible for the exams

    I got the transcripts from my college and sent them to the university

    You can reply
    • The rules for submitting documentation might be different from institution to institution. Check this There are required documents at www.wes.org/ca/eca

    • I am going to apply for the general training test soon as I am not going to study for it. It looks like it is easier than an academic. Is it a good idea to take an Ipditch from IDP or British Council?

        I. My wife is a computer application student. Is it necessary for me to do an ECA for my masters as well?
        I’m. My degree is a dual degree. I have two degrees for them. Is it possible to add two credentials on WES portal and one course as btech and mba?

      • You can find instructions on the website. I recall reading that if you have a Masters over three years, then you might have to get both evaluated

        Depending on how your University issues transcripts. If they issue them separately, you could have separate entries. Ask them to be sure by using the WES contact form

      • The name is the same on both the degree and mark sheets. They are different, so go with the one with the degree

        There is a draw every week. The scores are different. You can look at the past scores by searching for “Express Entry rounds of invitation”. You will get an idea

        Is it necessary to send the transcripts from the uni to WES?
        Is it necessary to create two separate credentials for the university and USQ in the same application?

      • This is a difficult one. You have to send the transcripts from the University that issued your degree. I would strongly recommend that you contact WES directly to get the correct information from the horse. You would need one WES account to get this done

I would not recommend sending random documents which are not complete, as WES has strict document guidelines, if they don’t get what they ask for
      No. It has to be an international post. If you go with ordinary courier, you might not get the report. I have friends who did the same thing and they never got their report. They had to apply again

      • No format is such. A note is written every now and then explaining that your name on the degree certificate is not the same as on the passport and that you need to attach a PP page as proof

      • I received my evaluation from WES. The names on one or more of the academic credentials submitted for evaluation differ from the name indicated above, and that is what caused the comment on top of the page
        What is the implication of this on my application? Thank you!

      • The name should be on the passport. If the name on the report is different, you should use it on the WES online application form

        I am not sure if this is a situation I have dealt with before, but I am pretty sure that the resolution would be to submit a LOE about this along with a “One and the same person affidavit” when you submit your PR application

      • I used the name as per my passport and sent an LOE to WES explaining the difference in name along with my passport copy
        Is it just a letter explaining about the name of the person? Or should it be written by someone?

      • You can get the affidavit notarized if you received the eca report

  100. This is the question I had asked the past year

    I would like to get my masters and bachelors evaluated. What is the process in the WES site? Do we just specify masters or can we specify two degrees?

    You can reply
    • You can pay the same amount if you specify both degrees. If you have a Masters over 3 years, you might have to submit both Masters and bachelors

      You can reply
      • I wanted to know if we just select Masters evaluation or if they will know we want to evaluate both masters and bachelors separately

      • You can not decide. You can’t do anything else, just submit the correct documentation. They will give you an evaluation after processing them. Some people have been evaluated as Masters and others as Post Graduate Diplomas. I know it is weird but that is how it is. When you create WES account, you should create 2 rows with the details of each study. They might evaluate your Masters as being equivalent to a Masters in Canada. Good luck!

      • Thanks a lot for the responses. I will ping back here if anything else happens. Thanks again

  101. I received a B tech and a 1 year postgraduate degree in International Business Operations from IGNOU. Will I get more points for this?

I got into the Job sector with no knowledge or guidance, but I did not complete my graduation because I only worked in Fashion Technology. I worked for 18 years in different private companies. I tried for Canadian immigration after realizing that without my graduation things are not possible. I have only two options, but I don’t know which one will work in my favor or make the process for Canadian immigration easier
    I can do the graduation in one year from a university that is approved by the University Grants Commission

    You can reply
    • You need to have a secondary degree
      You could do this but it has to be recognized by the ECA. The University can’t claim points for diplomas from non-recognized institutions if the ECA issuing organization doesn’t recognize it
      I don’t understand how a course from an institution that isn’t recognized by the ECA would help. I don’t vouch for this. You can show 6 years of experience under the F SW points grid, but you can’t show more than 3 years of experience. We will get there later, but we need to get the basics done soon

  104. My wife had adiploma in computer science after 10th class and a bachelor’s degree in computer science after two years
    Does it make sense to evaluate the degree?
    I will only go for a degree from the Bachelor’s degree

    She got admitted to the second year of degree course directly after finishing her degree, after 3 years of studying

    There is a clear cut difference in points between the two options

    You can reply
    • I am not sure if that degree would give more points. If you want to, you can try to get it done

      If the ECA report says that both credentials are from recognized institutions and the Canadian equivalency is at least higher than high school completion, you can go ahead with 2 or more degrees. You have to go with a couple

    I am applying for Canadian immigration with my husband. I need your help with the following queries
    We both have appeared for the same job, so do we need to get the ECA done?
    Do we provide the documents from 10th standard onwards?
    Do we need to get an attestation from the university?
    How long does the ECA process take?

    Do I need to send my graduation certificates as well?
    Is it necessary for me to do ECA for graduation certificates?
    I would like to submit one application in WES and send both ECA done
    Do I have to submit two different WES applications for each transcript?

        How to send the application form?
        I don’t know if I need to send a photo copy or Xerox

      • You have to send a copy of your degree

  112. Have you sent a request for records? This is in my evaluation report. Thanks

    You can reply
    • I did send that but I don’t think it’s mandatory

  113. Thank you for the detailed post. It is helpful. The names on some of the academic credentials submitted for evaluation differ from the names indicated in the report
    Above. Need your suggestions?

    You can reply
    • Yeah. If the name on the credentials is different from the one you used on the application, you can give them a copy of the bio page of the passport. I think I covered this in the post. If the names are completely different, you might have to provide a legal name change document proof

      You can reply
      • Raj, are you referring to IRCC or WES here? I received a ECA report recently and it had a similar issue

      • I go the above comment from WES. My initial has been expanded in the passport, so a copy of my bio is suffice. Thanks in advance.

      • I have sent a copy of my passport along with a letter explaining the case, thanks for the reply Raj
        Will they send the Evaluation report back?

      • Have you received the report? I am not sure. You might have to explicitly request them to send a new report, which might cost you. I submitted my ECA application with WES and the report that I received contained my full name

    Thanks a lot

    You can reply
    • You have to do that research. I have only used one. If you want to compare different organizations, just look them up. WES sometimes considers a Masters degree as a post graduate diploma, while another organization might evaluate it as Masters
      You just need to give your post secondary credentials. 10/12 grade evaluations are not required. If it says it doesn’t recognize the University, you can’t claim points for it, and it may say it was obtained from a non-recognized institution. If you can get other organizations to recognize the institution where you pursued your Masters, you can try contacting them

      You can reply
      • I know I can ask ICAS to check my credentials original latest one and other secondary, but I am not sure if they are evaluating degree wise or not. I need to confirm that ICAS is fine for my case and that it is still time consuming for my points

      • Yeah. Good choice. It makes sense to go with ICAS if they recognize your institution

      • Enas
        Absolutely. The institution put a WES form inside with my applications reference number

        If you have time, let your institution do that. They know all the WES dealings. I did things a little quick because I had to do them before I turned 35, but I did not violate the WES requirement of the document to be sealed with an institution stamp

      • Yes! I know people who have made that mistake. They apply and send documents to the US office. You can get the right link by searching for “WES Canada ECA”

  119. I received my evaluation from WES and they only considered my bachelor degree. They have written a one year master degree from a non recognised institute. Is it a good idea to mention the masters degree when I apply for an express entry? If I can still mention it, what should I do with the level of education shown on the report? One year program at a university, college, trade or technical school seems closest to the situation. This doesn’t have “non recognised” mentioned. Will it be wrong to select this? Is the bachelor degree mentioned in this application?

    You can reply
    • The ECA report says that the degree is from a non-recognized institution. There is no point in mentioning it in the education section

      You can try this. Ask another ECA issuing organization if they will recognize your Masters degree. You can submit a report if they do. You get more points for Masters degree if you apply with just a bachelor’s degree

    You can reply

    The award was given by the university
    The ACICS Accredited status is shown below
    Software engineering is a major degree

    Only institutions accredited by one of the regional agencies areRemarks
    WES considers the U.S. to be a part of Canada

    Is it possible to claim points for this since it is still a Master’s Degree?

    I reached out to all the other orgs and they all said I would get a similar report on my Masters.

    • You can’t claim points for thiscredential. If you have already checked with other organizations, we have no options left

      You can reply
  129. Thanks for the reply. I was curious about the IRCC website, where did it say that Master’s Degree from non-recognized institutions are not valid to claim points? For my own thoughts

    You can reply
    • You can do that research online. I don’t have a link for that but I’m pretty sure that credentials that aren’t recognized can’t be used to claim points. I don’t have a link to give at the moment

      You can reply
      • I don’t see where the degree should be recognized on the website
        You told a person that his Masters should award points, which confuses me even more
        You should be good because your Masters degree from the US will give you points for your Masters degree
        How to educationalcredential assessment from wes is a comment page on therec-canada.com
        How is my evaluation different from his? I am trying to understand who this is, not pointing you in the wrong direction

      • If the degree is not recognized, you will not get points for that credential

        I told Harsha that if she has a Masters from the US, it will most likely be evaluated as a Masters in Canada. I might have made a mistake by telling him that if his report said the institution was not recognized, it would be

        They were unable to verify if the University was accredited by a regional authority

        Your WES report says this
        WES considers institutions accredited by one of the six regional agencies in the U.S. to be in Canada

        I would ask IRCC if I can claim points for this credentials and ask WES if other ECA issuing organizations will recognize this University, if I were you

        If there is a note that says something like “Issued by non-recognized institution” on the report, it is a good idea to check and recheck before applying because you will not be able to claim points

        This is my opinion. If you want to get more opinions, you can check the IRCC website or approach others who are volunteering. Good luck

  130. HI Raj
    I am confused about the documents that are going to WES. The WES website doesn’t mention anything about sending Transcript, but if you have Mark sheets from the university along with a degree certificate, it’s enough for ECA

    From the site
    The degree certificate is the final or final part of the degree
    Mark Sheets is the statement of marks
    This is an official document issued by the institution that is responsible for conducting the exams. It lists all the subjects taken and marks earned for each year of study

    You can reply
    • The Marksheets were written by the controller of the exams at the institution

      You have to send a copy of your degree to WES

    Thanks for the information, it helps me understand ECA Better
    I am wondering if I have come to Canada after completing my 10th and 12th in India. When I looked at the CIC website, it said that you need ECA when you are completing Express entry profile. The ECA conversion table shows Secondary School. You said that we don’t need ECA for 10th and 12th. I am confused

    You can reply
    • You don’t get points for school in the F SW eligibility points grid or theCRS points

      You can reply
      • Oh, I can see it. It isn’t compulsory for me to file ECA for FSW qualification Right?

      • Unless you have adiploma from Canada, ECA report is mandatory. You should get your secondary credentials evaluated. You don’t have to evaluate your 10th and 12 grade mark sheets

        I would recommend you read the Express Entry in a nutshell post to better understand how the process works

I would like to have my ECA renewed before I submit my documents. I sent an email to WES but they didn’t reply. There is no facility for renewing onine WES account. How to get a new WES?

    You can reply
    • If you did it back in the year 2013, you might have to do it again. The report number is usually the suffix for the ECAs that are done for immigration

      I would recommend that you get the report done again to be safe

      You can reply

    • There is not much we can do if WES can’t evaluate thiscredential. If other ECA issuing organizations recognize this, you can try to do something about it. Go with them if they do. We can’t do anything about it if they don’t

  139. Raj completed his postgraduate degree from an independent college. I would like to know what the documents are required for. Thanks

    You can reply
    • You can reply
      • The business school is not affliated to any university. He can get his mark sheets from the college, but he cannot get a transcript. Will WES accept college attestation? Please reply

      • The process of colleges is different. Please check the website for more information. I wouldn’t know anything about college

  140. Raj, thanks for the information you have provided. I would appreciate if you could give me some guidance on the WES evaluation

    The Maharashtra Board is on the 10th
    The 12th is commerce
    The masters in commerce are from the Mumbai University
    The Marketing is a full-time job

    You can reply
    • What are you looking for? You have to get your credentials evaluated
      You don’t have to evaluate 10th and 12th grade credentials because they don’t offer any points. You just have to get your credentials evaluated

      You can reply
      • I won’t get 10th and 12th evaluated

        I am applying for a job. What do you mean by secondary credentials? I have done masters in management and commerce, so should I only get the masters degree evaluated along with the marksheets?

      • Education after secondary level. You can get your masters and bachelor’s evaluated. The documents are on the website

  141. I had a doubt. –
    The last two Sems of B.com were held by Mumbai University. Is it better to get the marksheets from my college first, then the last two, or the entire 6 semester marksheets from the university?
    WES website states that marksheets of semesters conducted by the college may be attested by them or the university, but online threads say that marksheets of exams conducted by the college can be attested by the university
    I am being cautious but it is also a time consuming process if I follow the online threads

    • I remember seeing a section on the WES website for University of Mumbai. Please check that for more information. You can contact your friends who might have got transcripts for Wes

  142. I got my degree last year. I just completed a year in yoga. Is this a valid qualification for two or more jobs?
    Is there a way for me to request WES to make changes to the previous evaluation if I want to?

    You can reply
    • You can open a WES account and update your diplomas if you want to. You don’t need a new report if you upgrade your current one

      You can either claim points for it or not based on the evaluation you get from WES

      You can reply
    • I’m Hi,
      Did WES check out your yoga degree? WES said they don’t evaluate yoga, even though my sister did a degree in it from a recognized university
      Your reply would be helpful

    Can she do ECA for this course or not, my wife has passed PCL Nursing from Nepal
    She might need to take the test for the ECA report

    I checked on WES Canada website and found that there are two options for IRCC, which is WES standard and ECA application

    You can reply
    • Please direct the question to WES. I don’t know

      ECA can add points to your CRS, but it is not required

      If you are applying to IRCC, then it is the latter option

  145. Jayesh
    My wife and I are going to apply for Canada PR together. We have doubts about the WES account creation
    Her name isVidya V. We put her name asVidhya Vikraman in the passport while creating WES account. The educational credentials filling steps show that one filed the question, “What Is The Name On The Credential?”, where it says “Enter your name exactly as it appears on yourcredential.” Is it possible to write something like ‘Vidhya V’ or ‘Vidya Vikraman’ on this filed? It would be better to use the name ‘Vidya Vikraman’ in the report. If we put the name as ‘Vidhya V’ in the file, we can send an affidavit to WES as the transcripts may contain the name

    You can reply
    • The name should be on the passport. To request the full name, send a copy of the bio page of the passport with a LOE

      You can reply
      • Thank you for the clarification. What do you mean by LOE? The expansion of her father’s name is called ‘V’.

  146. Your website is a great place to find help for immigrants. I need your expert advice on 3 queries
    Is the Post Graduate Diploma in Management approved by the AICTE?
    I have completed the part time part time of the Postgraduate Degree in Business Management. I received a reference letter from the institute and the course has been approved by the AICTE. The letter is in a sealed envelope and ready to be submitted to WES. Will it help my case to be evaluated as a MBA?

    There was a mistake in the calculation of the total marks. My marks were more than 260. It was shown as 365 under the title. The score in 5 subjects mentioned in the marksheet is correct and the score in Grand Total is incorrect. The institute gave a one pager transcript and it gave correct marks for each semester. They attached all copies of marksheet to a sealed envelope with a transcript and stamped them

    The institute agreed that there was a TYPO error but wanted to check if it would affect the evaluation from WES

    The graduation transcript has my name mentioned. My passport and marksheet mention my complete name, but I also have a different name, that of Satinder Singh Gambhir. Is it necessary for me to submit additional documents to make sure same is processed without any problems?

    You can reply
    • I can’t possibly know that. WES evaluations are not consistent in their evaluation of the degree being equivalent to a degree from a bachelor’s degree

      If your institution has corrected it, this should not be a problem. You will only be submitting mark sheets to WES. You will only be submitting your degree to IRCC

      The name on the passport is always the one to always go by. Always. If you want your name to be expanded in the ECA report, you need to write a LOE to WES. Attach a copy of the bio page of the passport

      You can reply
      • Thanks for your feedback, I have read that attaching a certificate from AIU or AICTE which is issued to institute that is equivalent to aMBA aids in getting evaluated as aMBA from WES. Do you know anything about it?

      • Nope. I am not sure about that. I think our documentation will change their evaluation method because they have their own criteria

  147. Do I need to visit my university to get the transcript done?

    You can reply
    • It depends on the University. You can ask your University

      For the time being, you can type in your first name in the last name field and leave the first name blank. Attach a copy of your passport bio page if you want to explain this

      I would first recommend that you not do anything else before changing your name on the passport. It might be difficult after you come here

      For your Masters application, get your ECA done. You should be fine to go

      You can reply

      • All, Dear Raj
        I am in a crisis situation here and any clues will be helpful
        I sent the degree transcripts to the Canadian office after applying for a WES Canada Educationcredential assessment. WES put my application on hold because of verification from university. They told me that they had received a verification email from WES and had replied to confirm the authenticity of the documents
        The application status did not change after a while. I checked with WES and they said there is a specific procedure mentioned in the email sent to the university. I couldn’t decipher any specific procedure when I cross checked the email body with the university couner. WES is not sure what he is talking about. They said no to revealing this information to me. I have no clue what to do in a situation like this
        I would like to know what your university did for verification when you faced this situation with WES Canada. Any help would be greatly appreciated
        Thank you

      • I have seen people go through this issue and I did not have it. I am sorry about the frustration. If that is possible, you can tell the University WES is expecting a reply to the email they sent them. You became a victim of that when you were a victim of this random check

        After checking with University, get back to WES

      • I am just starting my application for express entry. I went through the WES portal and am in the process of sending the transcripts to WES Canada. I was wondering if I could just collect the transcripts and send them as a single package. I would really appreciate some guidance in this regard

      • If your institution doesn’t ship the transcripts directly to WES, this is possible

    You can reply
    • I have already said in the post that 10th and 12 grade certificates don’t need to be evaluated. Go through the post and submit your questions. It would save a lot of time for both of them

      I would recommend that you both be evaluated. You pay the same price. Getting the Masters done should be enough. . It is better to get both the UG and the PG evaluated if WES doesn’t recognize Masters as equivalent to a Masters in Canada

      You can reply
      • Thanks Raj for the confirmation
        Do I need to show my certificates? WES do not accept attestation from lawyers. Do I need to get it attested from my college?

      • You should get your transcripts from your university. The degree marksheets are written by the controller of Examinations at the University. If you are a member of a deemed University, you might have a different process. Instructions for specific universities can be found on the WES website

    I have done ECA for my bachelor’s. The ECA report is needed for the post graduate degree in Business Administration from Annamalai university

    You can reply

      You can reply
      • WES sent a verification request to Annamali after they received my degree/marksheets, I completed my postgraduate degree in Annamalai Distance. Did you face this step during your WES assessment? Annamalai responded to the verifictaion request in a timely manner

      • This happens occasionally. The University would have to reply

        I didn’t have an issue with my evaluation. I have seen it happen

    • Was your 1 year degree from Annamalai university evaluated by WES? Please reply

  171. People are saying that if ECA rejects the case, we need to sign and stamp the transcripts from the university by the college principal

    I studied in a college that is under a university and I want to know if this is really required
    I have the transcripts from the university, do I need to get them signed to become the college principal?

    You can reply
    • It depends. I don’t know the transcripts procedure for your University. Get in touch with your peers who have done this before and find out how they got it

      Specific details on the WES website are available for some universities
      Required documents can be found at www.wes.org/ca

      PS:
      ECA can not reject the case
      ECA is an assessment of education
      WES is the organization that deals with the ECA
      WES might reject the application

      You can reply
      • I was told by my university that it needs the documents signed by my college principal to give me the required transcripts

        The degree certificate is the final or final part of the degree
        You can complete the study by sending a clear and legible copy of the document to WES. Do not send your original document again

        Mark Sheets is a statement of marks
        option 2
        If the institution gives you a document to send to WES, you need to make sure it is dated, signed and stamped by the appropriate officer at the institution that conducted the examination. WES can’t accept the document if the envelope is opened or there is no signature on the back flap

        I am sending the transcripts to WES, but I don’t know if I need to get a degree certificate or a statement of marks

      • Ask for the transcript from your university. The marksheets and degree transcripts are usually given to the controller of Examinations at your University. You have to send your degree and transcripts to WES after you get your University transcripts. The envelope should be sealed.

    • The information should be the same as on the ECA report. If your degree was not considered Masters, your score will go down if you mentioned it in your EE profile

      I would recommend declining the ITA, updating the information in your EE profile and waiting for another ITA if you want to get a Masters degree, because the draw in which you received your ITA is less than theCRS of the draw in which you received your Masters degree

      You can reply
      • I would like to declare it in my Permanent residency application as a two year program and ECA equivalent as 4 years of bachelor’s degree, but I’m not sure if I can do that

      • If you claim points for 2 or more degrees and your CRS is still above the cutoff for the specific draw in which you got ITA in, you can change your mind and attach a Letter of Explanation explaining the change. Make sure you highlight that the score is still more than the cutoff of the draw you got your ITA in

  178. Hello, please help me. One year of study at a non-recognized institution is called Canadian equivalency
    I got a result for my postgraduate degree, so can I take more than one degree for EE, entry?

    You can reply
    • I don’t think you can claim points for non-recognized credentials

      You can reply
      • I am lucky for you. Thanks for your reply
        I created my EE profile without adding spouse points as her WES was still pending, and there is always option for adding spouse points after receiving the ITA, but we lost our score to 441 from 441. I received the ITA after the cutoff of 440. I should decline this or wait for a fresh cutoff

      • The draw in which you got ITA will have an effect on that. If your CRS is greater than or equal to the draw in which you received your ITA, you should be good

      • The tie-break date was February 21, 2018, at 11:28:03 UTC. All candidates with a score of at least 450 who submitted their profile before this specified date and time received an ITA

        This was written in the news for aug 22 draw. I am wondering if I can still go ahead if I have a better score

      • I would like to agree with you. If you run me through the changes that you are going to make to the application, I could give you a more confident answer

      • I added wife’s profile as well as claimed points for her work experience. That is it. I have tried calling cic many times but they are not responding to email

      • If a dependent gained work experience in Canada, then claim points can be called. You could remove spouse’s work experience from the profile. Adding spouse ECA would give you a few points

        You can add your spouse to the application. I am just concerned about one part. The difference in points after adding a spouse is usually small. If you add your spouse after ITA, the points would go down by a factor greater than 1

        Keep this profile the same as before. You can create another EE profile with your spouse details. If you can get that profile, you can get an iat. You can submit whatever you have now if you don’t. Cross-checking all information on the profile is to avoid surprises

      • I forgot to mention that people who created before 21 feb are called in 22nd aug draw for the tie break, as I have posted

  179. I am Hi
    I am from Pakistan and have sent documents to WES
    Home economics is a degree after four years after graduating from college
    Masters in Mass communication Pakistan for 2 years
    Masters in Filmmaking UK for one year

    WES has accepted all of these, but they still want me to get a secondary certificate. I told them that I did not go to school for the high school level, but I did four years of college

    You can reply
    • After 10th grade, people usually have to go through grade 11 and 12 and then take a diploma course to get a bachelor’s degree. That is what happens in India

      It has been a while since you finished your bachelor’s, so WES might want your Higher Secondary documents

      You can provide a letter of explanation and any evidence that you did not have to complete grade 11/12 after grade 10 to take to a bachelor’s degree

    • Usually, no. It would be sufficient to get just your Masters evaluated

      If a Masters degree is obtained on top of a 3 year degree, then both the Masters and the bachelors transcripts should be sent to AFAIK. This is true for degrees obtained in India, but not in other countries

    I am a graduate of Electronics and Electrical Engineering and have just completed my Bachelor’s degree. I applied for a course and am currently pursuing it. I need to do the evaluation for the postgraduate degree. Is it going to be an upgrade or a new evaluation?
    Is it possible to give my degree to the Bachelor and then give them a Bachelor’s degree for 4 years?
    I am doing a postgraduate degree in applied statistics. Your help is appreciated

The number of years as a Master of Technology and Master of Engineering is 1. I will evaluate to Master’s equivalency if I give either of them. Is that correct?

    Should I give my degree as Masters while calculating the CRS score?

    I received my ECA report from WES. The report states that the names on one or more of the academic credentials submitted for evaluation differ from the name indicated

I followed your instructions and sent a copy of my passport with a letter requesting to have my name printed in the report. I was requested by them to see the full name in the report, but I don’t know what the problem is

      • That is weird. I checked my report and I don’t see anything like that. Maybe it is a new system. There should be some kind of clarification on the Canadavisa immigration forum about this

  196. I am going to my ECA with WES. You have answered many questions about name

    I have a WES profile with my name on it. The initial is not expanded in my degree certificate. The initial is expanded where it was in my passport and other documents

    Should I request a transcript with my name expanded? Is it okay if I get the ECA done with my initials and then post an Affidavit on my Express entry profile?

    You can reply
    • The University will not give certs with a different name. You have to attach a copy of your passport to a letter that WES will use to verify your identity. I did that and I didn’t have any issues with the report

      You must provide your bachelor’s degree documents for Indian Master’s Degree or Postgraduate Diploma applicants. WES can’t complete an evaluation without these documents. Master of Education, Master of Engineering, Master of Philosophy, and Master of Technology are not required for your bachelor’s degree

      • Let’s get to the basics. IRCC wants to know who the person is so they don’t use their name on your degree. Your name should be consistent. They use the name on the passport
        My initial was not expanded on my degree or my transcripts, but I provided my full name as on my passport, and attached a bio page of my passport to my letter of explanation. My full name was printed on the report. I would strongly recommend that you do the same, but you have the final say
        WES understands that this issue exists with Indian applicants so it makes it easier

    You can reply

    • We can’t add anything more if the University is sending it to WES. WES website reads this after December ’18. –
      What should you tell your institution?
      Please request your institution to mail your documents directly to WES in a sealed envelope with institution stamps on the back flap. The institution must mail the sealed envelope. They should not give the sealed envelope to you or a third party
      The help# is “path/1200364261”
      When you look at the required documents section for Indian applicants, it seems you have to send a copy of your degree from your end. I don’t understand why they have this requirement if the University is sending them the documents directly. I would strongly recommend that you send a copy of your degree to WES

        It is cheaper than any other mode, at Rs.199. My university preferred to use that only

      • I used a delivery service to send my documents. I think it is reliable despite its high price. If you have a facility on the post, then it should be okay

      • The vehicle is reliable. I agree. India Post has a facility to track the documents when they are dispatched via air mail. Not after that. We don’t have an option to choose the mode since universities are going to send in the transcripts directly. Unless your university accepts your request

    I was thinking to do a one year postgraduate degree from IGNOU so that I can apply for two or more degree sections to increase myCRS score, if I check my score as per above

    Is it approved for me to do a 1 year postgraduate degree from IGNOU?

    The 1 years post graduate degree from India is approved in Canada

    A bachelor degree, a postgraduate degree, and a work experience degree are included

    I applied for two or more degree options, and can I get a 1 year postgraduate degree from IGNOU?

    You can reply

  224. Raj, I am happy to hear you
    I must say that the blog is very informative
    I have a degree in both, but my father omitted the last one, so I have a degree in both
    Does father name matter in ECA evaluation?

    • When you enter the details on the WES website, you should give the correct name

      I sent them a copy of my passport’s bio page to show my full name, since my degree certificates did not have my last name expanded

    Good day!
    Leann Mary Titus is the name in my passport and educational certificates
    I have an affidavit that says my name is Leanne Mary Titus
    I was told by the university that they will not allow me to attach a passport copy or affidavit to their Transcript envelope
    Please let me know what name I should use when creating an WES application
    Please assist

    • The name on your passport is important. I always tell people that anything related to immigration and visas should be written on the passport

  226. Hello Raj
    I have a degree from the school
    How to send transcript from these two institutions
    on our behalf
    Do we need to send them in a single envelope?
    Please help
    Thanks in advance. The question is,
    A man

    • If the University doesn’t send it, you can send it to WES. It can be sent in a different way. WES will only process your application if you mention in your profile that you want to get 2 credentials evaluated

    I received my report two years ago and it has affected my education point
    We shall do anything, it is the final one. Further, please. advise

    • These results are usually final and you can’t write about them. If WES doesn’t work for you, you should try getting an ECA from one of the other ECA issuing organizations

  229. I’m Hi,
    I want to apply for express entry again after 5 years since my ECA expired, and I want to extend it for another 5 years. I would like to know if the CIC will accept renewed WES reports
    Thanks
    Rajiv

    You can reply
    • I think it should be fine. I have never heard of anyone having issues with immigration while using an ECA

      Make sure that the ECA you have is actually an ECA and not a course-by-course evaluation

  231. I received my WES report and it says Canadian equivalency about my course and in the remarks it says it’s not comparable, but I am confused and I asked them back in inquiry

    I have a degree in Commerce and an M.A. from Amity Business School, but I was hoping that you would reply again, because I have had this answered before. I have sent my details to WES for evaluation and now going through a few posts, it has been mentioned that my MBA won’t be considered as a Masters degree. Is that correct? Would really appreciate your response

    You can reply
    • It depends on the institution. WES has sent out evaluations that were not satisfactory to the applicants. The degree of the business school is equivalent to a degree from a college. This is a possibility that might not happen in your case

      You can reply
      • Raj, appreciate your response. I hope it doesn’t happen in my case

      • I am Raj
        My WES evaluation came back and they have treated my AmityMBA after B.Com as a second Bachelor’s degree. I wanted to ask more questions and would appreciate if you or anyone else could give me feedback. Do you think it would be a good idea to get a second ECA done via IQAS or any other service providers? Thanks for the reply and look forward to hearing from you

      • I have seen some cases where the evaluation came out differently when they went with a different organization. Some people have succeeded in it. This is an option if you have more money to spare

      • Thanks Raj. Which service provider would you recommend to me? This may not be a fair question but I wanted to get your two cents on it

      • I plan on using IQAS to evaluate my ECA again. I have a couple of questions and would appreciate if you could answer them. –

        One only needs to get his/her highest degree evaluated, according to the IQAS website. Is that true? The site says that getting more than one degree would add another 4 weeks to the processing time. My agent in India says that in case of Indian education one needs to get both the Bachelor’s and theMBA evaluated, so do you think I should only get myMBA evaluated? Is that true?

        I am not sure if you would have an answer to this, but you think Amity University is recognised by IQAS. I did my masters degree in Amity Noida

        I would really appreciate if you could give me some feedback

  235. I am Raj
    The name in my passport is different from the name in degree certificate
    Venkatraman Shekar has a passport
    B.e, Masters, Venkatraman S
    Is it a problem to send an affidavit saying that both are the same name?

    You can reply
    • I included my bio page in my passport and requested that they use my full name

      You can reply
      • Thanks for your reply, Raj. I added my masters and bachelors credentials in the credentials tab, but it said to use the name as per credentials, or use the name in the transcript as initials

      • I used the full name, so I would recommend that to you. The report will show your initials on it

  236. I am Raj
    You reply to people’s questions and give a genuine solution to the problems
    I would like to know if you have the same degree as me in hotel administration and Bsc
    I want to check with you before sending to WES so that I can avoid getting into the process if they value it the same as a Bachelor course of 3 years
    Thanks in advance

    The website is amazing. Thanks for providing information about the WES process. I have done Btech from GGSIPU and Mtech from Bits Pilani. I have checked my Mtech and it shows me the Masters 2 years course. I don’t have Btech transcripts yet, so should I get only Mtech evaluated? Please confirm

    You can reply
    • You would have to get both masters and bachelors evaluated for most Indian Masters degrees. You can find the list of documents that you have to submit in your WES account. If you are not required to submit a bachelor’s degree, you should be fine

      • I have one more query, thanks a lot for the update. A friend of mine has done a 2 years degree in animation. Is WES evaluating animation courses?

      • I can’t think of a reason why they wouldn’t take a 2 year course from a recognized institution. You can check the WES website directly

  239. I applied to WES for an evaluation of my degrees. I am waiting for the evaluation after they accepted my certificates. This evaluation is for admission to a college. I am not concerned about whether the status is recognized or not
