    Tanong lang po regarding sa Date of Effect ng EOI. Nagsubmit po kasi ako ng EOI ay Dec 6. Then nagbirthday po ako nitong Jan 7. Nagrecalculate po yung system pero wala nabago sa pts ko. Pero yung DOE po ay naging Jan 7. Pano po kaya yun sa ITA? Dec batch ako o Jan batch? Thank you!

    Hello. Regarding sa documents as evidence.. pano po kung ang meron lang ako ay soft copy at wala akong hard copy ng document, kailangan pa ba i cert true copy un? O enough na un soft copy ko as evidence? Yung soft copy ko scanned naman sya talaga ng original, yun lang wala sakin un orig na papel. Ty

    Hello. Ganito po kasi ang case ko, my 25th birthday will be on may. Kung isusubmit ko po ang EOI ko ngayong january, ok lang po bang ideclare ko na 25 na ako? Since aabutan naman ang birthday ko habang di pa ako naiinvite. TIA

    @beetle00 don't. False info yan pag ganun. If you submit your eoi now mag uupdate naman points automatically by april. I envy you haha nagiisip na rin ako ng paraan para mag 25 agad cause I just turned 23 this month.

    @beetle00 no, that's not ok at all. It's not even possible because when you enter your date of birth the system will calculate your age automatically.
  • beetle00beetle00 Posts: 101Member
    @MLBS @RheaMARN1171933 Thank you sa pagreply!

    Guys, so eto ang dilemma ko. We're aiming for partner skills at eto ang magiging scenario, hoping for your inputs.

    1. Primary applicant ako 233513 pro-rata occupation - 65 points before May and 70 points after May
    2. Secondary applicant ako, 233211 non-pro rata occupation - 65 points

    Anong path po ang may chance kaming mainvite?
  • seestraseestra BrisbanePosts: 68Member
    @bluerocky I suggest kung ano yung assessment ng ACS as to the no. of years experience mo in that occupation, yun din ang i-declare mo sa application mo para safe. Good luck!

    @Grifter Nung nag-apply ako, most of the docs na sinubmit ko where just colored scanned copies, some not even notarised/certified. Tinanggap naman.

    @Pebbles you could. As long as you could provide evidence that he's financially dependent on you. If not, it might not be a strong case
  • xylockexylocke SingaporePosts: 68Member
    Question po:

    Pede nman mag apply dba main applicant ay IT work dependent nya wife nya na nurse.

    Bali si husband lng ang applicant tapos EOI lagay nya meron sya dependent.

    If ever PR sila and need ni wife mag work, need pa din sya mag bridging course?

    Thank you

  • CasseyCassey Melbourne, AustraliaPosts: 2,803Member, Moderator
    @xylocke Oo pwede mong gawing dependent yung wife and kids kung meron. Mas maigi nga na isabay mo siya sa application mo, Bago siya makapagwork as a Nurse dito kailangan niyang magbridging para makapagregister siya as a Nurse rito sa Au. Otherwise, hindi siya makakapagwork as a Nurse.

    @engineerSC189

    Hi guys!

    I would like to please seek for any advice regarding my case.

    Just a background, I have lodged my Expression of Interest (EOI) in Skill Select last 05 May 2017.
    This is for my Skilled - Independent (subclass 189) (Permanent Resident) application to Australia.
    I was able to meet the points test pass mark at 65 total points (60 points is the baseline score).

    Age: 30 points
    English Language Ability: 10 points
    Education: 15 Points
    Work Experience: 10 points
    Total: 65 points

    Unfortunately, I don’t think this is enough for me to be invited to apply for a visa given the highly competitive domain for my field (Professional Engineers).
    Actually, Australia’s Department of Immigration and Border Protection already tagged my occupation for pro-rata arrangements due to increasing levels of demand.

    Please see my scores both in IELTS and PTE that only qualified me for Proficient English (10 points).

    Test: IELTS General Training (Thru British Council)
    Date: November 3, 2016
    Listening: 8.0
    Reading: 8.5
    Writing: 7.0
    Speaking: 9.0

    Test: PTE Academic
    Date: September 11, 2017
    Listening: 75
    Reading: 87
    Writing: 83
    Speaking: 90

    Given the tough competition, I believe the only way for me to secure the invite to apply for visa is to increase my over-all points.
    As all other parameters in the eligibility points are more or less fixed in my case for the time period (e.g. age, education, work experience, etc.), I can only enhance my score by improving my level of English proficiency from Proficient to Superior and gain 20 maximum points.

    When I realized that the scores being invited to apply for a visa are already ranging from 70 to 75 points, I took the PTE Academic exam to boost my over-all score as I just read in an online forum that it is supposedly easier to get higher scores in PTE against IELTS.

    As you can see from my detailed scores above, I almost reached the superior mark except for a single module in both tests (for IELTS at 7.0 for Writing and for PTE at 75 for Listening).
    Given the demands of my work, I had almost none to barely minimum preparation and review for both tests.
    I remember that I wasn’t able to finish my writing test for IELTS due to miscalculations in time management.
    As for PTE, I’m actually more comfortable with traditional pen and paper-based exam vs computer-based exam.
    I was actually bit distracted with the arrangement and set-up of PTE exam.

    With all the aforementioned details,
    1) Would you recommend that I consider taking IELTS or PTE for my next attempt to get superior score?
    2) Will there be a significant difference if I take my IELTS exam under IDP vs British Council? What do you recommend?

    I will appreciate it if you can give me any other advice so as to secure my invitation to apply for permanent resident visa to Australia.

    Thank you guys!!!

    Hi guys! I would just like to share an update as I’m in total bliss right now.
    Let this post be a reminder to everyone not to stop fighting for your dreams and goals in life.
    You just need to stay focused, passionate and work VERY hard and have the leap of faith that in the end everything will fall into right place at the right timing.

    I just updated my EOI for Skilled – Independent Subclass 189 to 75 points.

    Nominated Occupation: Industrial Engineer - 233511
    Age: 30 points
    English Language Ability: 20 points
    Education: 15 Points
    Work Experience: 10 points
    Total: 75 points
    New Date of Effect: 22 January 2018

    I received my PTE score report this morning. I took the exam last week with the following breakdown and history:

    1st attempt: IELTS General Training (Thru British Council)
    Date: November 3, 2016
    Listening: 8.0
    Reading: 8.5
    Writing: 7.0
    Speaking: 9.0

    2nd attempt: PTE Academic
    Date: September 11, 2017
    Listening: 75
    Reading: 87
    Writing: 83
    Speaking: 90

    Final attempt: PTE Academic
    Date: January 18, 2018
    Listening: 83
    Reading: 90
    Writing: 84
    Speaking: 90

    If you guys are interested, I’m very much willing to share my experience and how I was able to properly prepare the last round.
    Let’s all continue to be optimistic and aim only for the best. Fight!!!

    @xylocke you won't have to apply for skills assessment since you're husband is the main applicant. You can apply for PR as his dependent which won't be an issue. However, you would still need to qualify under AHPRA so you can work in Australia. Therefore, you would still need to look into requirements when you get there...most likely a bridging course first.
