suitable education One of the following types of education in a closely related field (e.g., Human Resources) a Master's or equivalent graduate degree (such as an LL.B.); OR 2 full years of progressively higher level graduate education leading to such a degree.
Combining Education and practice: I have a combination of specialized practice as described in A and graduate education as described in B which when combined equal 100% of the requirements.

The sum of the percentages must equal at least 100%. For example, if you had if you had 9 months of specialized practice equivalent to the GS-09, then you would have 75% of the required practice. If you also had 45 semester hours of creditable graduate level education, then 45-36=9 semester hours. 9 divided by 18 is 50% of the required education, and therefore, 75% + 50% = 125%.
