1. How can I be sure that my bachelor's degree falls under the professional bachelors (PBA) category?

A professional bachelor (formerly dispensed by so-called higher education instances of the short type) is a direct ticket to a specific profession, unlike an academic bachelor's degree (ABA), which simply provides access to an academic master’s and not to a profession. The PBA programme consists of minimum 180 credits.

If you are in doubt about what kind of degree you hold, please inform with your institution of learning.
