AndrewT posted a topic in ApplicationThe WES educational credential assessment (ECA) lists my majors as Applied Mathematics and Statistics. But my majors were actually slightly different: Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics. The graduation certificate just lists the degree, not the majors. But if you read the transcript carefully, it has the following at the end: "SUBJECT DISTINCTION MATHS, MATHS STATS, CM - MATHS 3, MATHS STATS 3" (CM = cert of merit). Other than that, there is no indication of what my majors actually were. It obviously makes sense to enter the WES majors in the application form, as that's the only information verifiable on any other source document. But does anyone have any advice (or experience) as to whether it's better to: Include a "full disclosure" addendum (in this case explaining that the WES assessment of the Canadian equivalent majors is different from the original majors, and I have entered the WES majors in the form) Include a disclaimer without any further explanation (e.g. a footnote: "As assessed by WES") Just use the WES majors without any further explanation i.e. favour simplicity over accuracy.I've tried to phrase these options in more general terms, so that the advice can be useful in other similar circumstances as well. [NB: The majors don't matter for the purposes of the application, as I am applying under NOC 2174 - computer programmer. This is really about the best policy to follow when dealing with CIC.]
