Transcripts and ECA services

Why transcripts?

Transcript of Records (ToR): The mark sheet which covers all the academic records of a student is called a Transcript or ToR. It is a sheet that contains the list of all the courses/subjects studied, grades received against each column, the awards and achievements of the student, and also the degrees granted to the student for the entire academic programme. There is no limit on the information that could be provided in a transcript.

A transcript must cover a complete list or table of yearly modules/subjects and practical work that they have studied and conducted throughout the study period. It consists of their marks or grades or in some cases the subject-wise credit value mentioned in it, considering the grading system followed by an institution.

Students need to produce the transcripts while making an application to the abroad university to attend the course of their choice. Students should keep their documents handy as soft copies to upload then and there to complete an application. Some abroad universities require their students to send out hard copies of their transcripts through a courier service. It is recommended to read the university requirements thoroughly before sending out your documents.

Transcripts for Higher Studies

If you want to or have applied for higher studies in Canada, USA or Australia; then an official college transcript would be a highly necessary submission as a prerequisite for admission and visa approval. A proper college transcript shows records of all academic courses attempted by you during your entire college career. This important piece of document is needed for higher studies.

ECA for Canada PR

If you have been planning to immigrate to Canada through a PR pathway, one of the very first things that you need to get done is to get the ECA report of your non Canadian education. ECA stands for Educational Credential Assessment for which you need to zero in on a Canadian government approved agency that would do it for you. If you use the Express entry route, you can’t start you PR file without completing this step and a lot of PNP streams too need an ECA of your education.

Usually, the consultancies take up this work too and at Enaaya Consulting we help you with the entire process which includes choosing the right ECA organisation and generating an online reference number for you and then applying your transcripts by visiting your college or university and finally ensuring that you get the expected outcome in your ECA report. The whole ECA process usually takes around 30 to 60 days and the entire process can be done by our team on your behalf.

Why ECA Services

In a fair world, there would be no need for an educational credential assessment. But the thing is Canadian authorities have no idea whether what you have studied for in your college or university has an equivalent in Canada. So, they need to ensure that. And they need to ensure that whatever certificates and transcripts you have are legitimate and not from some phony university or something that you just bought from the internet.

There are many organizations that you can use for educational credentials assessment in Canada. But no matter which organization you choose the evaluation process will begin only after you make the payment and they receive the necessary documents from you or your university. ECAs are not needed for Canadian credentials.

You can get ECA reports from multiple ECA agencies like bachelors from one and Masters from another one. The credentials evaluation process itself can also take several weeks to several months.

For doctors, the Medical Council of Canada must evaluate their primary medical diploma. Pharmacists needing a license to practice need to get credentials evaluation in Canada from the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada.

Another factor is that the evaluation criteria can change from time to time. So, if you are expecting a certain kind of evaluation as per your credentials, you might apply with a different evaluating body, if you don’t get it from the first one you apply with.

At the end of the day, the ECA outcome depends on the evaluating body. While you can follow the guidelines and expect an outcome, no one can really predict it for you.
