Ok answer me here

Great.. Actually yes, I would advise that you continue with your application because you do meet the qualifications. The qualification does not say that you need BOTH the education or the work experience. It is only ONE that is needed.

In addition, to meet the education/work experience requirement of the DV program,
you must have either:

a high school education or its equivalent, defined as successful completion of a 12-year course of
elementary and secondary education; OR a minimum of two years’ experience within the past five years in a job that requires at least two years of training.

Since you have the high school and the bachelor's degree, you do meet the qualifications. CONGRATULATIONS!

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you!
