Documents required for WES Canada ECA

  • 1. Degree Certificate

For the completed study, you can send a clear and legible copy of the degree to WES

  • 2. Mark Sheets/Transcripts

This is an official document issued by the institution responsible for conducting the examinations. It lists all subjects/papers taken and marks/grades earned for each year of study and must include your university student identification number.

For WES evaluation you will have to send all 3 years (1st+2nd+3rd year) mark sheets not just the last year mark sheet or degree certificate alone.

  • If your degree consists of a number of semesters, then you will need to send a final transcript that describes all subjects of every semester, marks scored in each subject, student identification number and grade description etc.

  • If your University does not give a final transcript, you can request them to provide a copy of each semester’s mark sheet. Ask them to sign and stamp all photocopies and put them in one envelope. Seal and get stamped with the university stamp in front of you.
