Hi everyone.
I am preparing to submit my EOI in due time and scrambled across a question in my mind regarding my educational qualification assessment. I have gained a PhD degree from a NZ university in very recent time (Recognized as Level 10). However, my previous degrees (i.e. Master and bachelor) are from foreign countries and not exempt from assessment. Now if I am claiming points only for my highest educational qualification which is a PhD and recognized as level 10, do I need to assess my previous degrees even though I am not (and I can't) claiming any points for those previous degrees? I have found that the EOI form asks for information about previous degrees if you are claiming points for post-graduate degree (e.g. PhD) but was wondering if those degrees have to be assessed or not?

Thank you in advance for shedding some light on this.
