I am Commerce Graduate ( 3 years Grad Program ) from India and has around 12 + years of experience . As per BS + 5 Rules , it needs US Equivalent of Bachelors degree with 5 years of Experience . Secondly , I had 4 years of experience before joining the current or and I am working with this company since the last 9 years . The Attorney evaluated my case as ED - 3 with the reason of " Non Availability of Bachelors Degree " . I have been reading around and researching but could find the right answers if this gets classified under EB - 2 . Please Help .

    Answered . My colleagues are correct. You are under EB3 because you must have a 4 year degree for eb2. Combination of education and employment are only considered where a 4 year degree is present-for eb2.
