Here the candidates must be aware that 65% of the roles, duties and responsibilities and instance of employment mentioned in the RPL report must be accordance with the nominated occupation along with experience which should be closely related to ANZSCO codes. If it is not clear as mentioned above, then the candidate’s RPL will be assessed by ACS and declare as “Not suitable due to lack of information”.
  2. The candidates must be very much sure about his/her job description for which occupation applied, if the description doesn’t match to relevant occupation as mentioned by ANZSCO then the candidate’s RPL will be rejected by ACS. So only the candidates should be careful in mentioning relevant job tasks with the nominated occupation.

  • Plagiarism: While submission of RPL reports to ACS the candidates should be careful about Plagiarism. There are many RPL report samples online, but these samples are only for reference not to copy or paste into the candidate’s RPL report. If the ACS finds any plagiarism in the candidate’s RPL report, then the report tends to get rejected by ACS. ACS wants the RPL report should be 100% unique. Altogether plagiarism is one of the main rejection reasons by ACS.

Candidates must be clear in declaring skills before and after qualification. For skilled migration, candidates need certain years of suitable work experience only after that skills and knowledge considered for employment and eligibility. Overall it means the work experience of the applied candidates could not meet the eligibility of RPL principles then the ACS will reject the RPL by saying “Not suitable due to lack of experience”.
