How do I answer the number of academic years completed question?


#1

While filling express entry form, im asked about number of academic years completed.
I only considered masters since that is the one i got evaluated from wes. Actual program took 1 year 4months
so i answered “1” while filling the form.
Is that correct?


#2

There should be a little question mark on the form that will show you further details about the question. This should say “Supported by a final transcript” which means you will have to enter the official number of years for your program as stated on your transcripts.


#3

I checked the transcript. It has no mention of official number of years. It just mentions when i took those courses.


#4

Sure but WES should mention the years on their report.


#5

WES report does not say the duration. :frowning:
I have put 1 year for now as it does not accept decimal or strings.

Ignore. WES does not add that information to the result. There must be some information on how long officially the degree is. For example my BS for 4 years officially.


#7

Adding to Vik. My MS is two years, however I completed it in 3 semesters (1.5 years) I still put down two as that is the official duration of the course.

Sorry I missed this you have to use the @ symbol to tag someone in the message. For this question in the application it says “As supported by a final transcript.” under information. See your transcript I suspect it will say 2 year degree.
