    Home Edition TOEFL

    Wow that is awesome, congratulations. This is my 3rd test! I did IELTS first and got 9, and all 8.5 apart from reading at 6.5, which didn't make sense. Then I did PTE in Nov and the listening ended before I had finished, I was ready to reschedule the PTE than COVID happened. I hate exams and my nerves kick in so the home test seemed a much suitable option for me. To be honest I am feeling a kind of dumb ass, given English is my first language and I have a degree!

    Thanks, I could try but have test booked for in the morning, so I am guessing it is too late. I think the cut off was Friday. I will send an email tonight and see if I get a reply before test. Thanks again.

    Home Edition TOEFL

    After more digging I found this https://www.ets.org/toefl/test-takers/ibt/where/country/australia-nz $200 down the drain on top of what is already a costly process. Totally frustrated. I can only take the test on the off chance they will recognize this later on. Lyn, I just wanted to acknowledge this and thank you for bringing to my attention sooner rather than later.

    That's really good, the worse bit is waiting. I will see what happens after my test next week with the TOEFL. I have studied so much, to change back to PTE now would be a pain. But many thanks for the link, in case I need, though hopefully my results are valid.

    Home Edition TOEFL

    I am doing the home edition one, my consultant advised this. Too late to cancel now so fingers crossed. I can not see any difference with home edition as its all strict and monitored.

    Home Edition TOEFL

    After a stressful night in which thankfully based on my trust in my consultant, I continued to study and received this information from them first thing this morning. You can actually do the TOEFL for visa immigration! https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/meeting-our-requirements/english-language/proficient-english Also test centres for PTE are still closed in UK based on Persons website, where you book PTE from.

    Hope you get your results. Best wishes I need to follow this up ASAP as test next week. My agent assured me I could take the TOEFL so really confused! Does anyone have an update? I have also changed my E2 language practice course from PTE to TOEFL and this will cost to change back again.

    Home Edition TOEFL

    Shocked to see this as my agent advised to switch from PTE to TOEFl to enable me to get my score and points (as centres closed) I have paid $200 for the test and spent the last month studying! Any updates on this?

    Moving a cavalier King Charles

    Really concerned about moving our dog overseas, as he comes under snub nosed dogs, has anyone moved a cavalier? I know there are factors like timing of flights, avoid certain times of year flying etc, Thanks in advance. Maria

    Schools in queensland

    We are yet to confirm an area, but will be moving to QL on a stated nominated visa. Does anyone have any useful links, the children will be 15, 13 and 8 next year. In the UK we have Ofsted as a guide ( I do keep an open mind reading reports but use as guide). Is there something Similar in Australia? Any tips for looking at schools and what costs do we need to factor in? Both boys, youngest 2 love football, so will need to keep them involved in sport. My daughter is into acting and often attends auditions and appears in shows in UK, would there be options for her in Australian. We have privately funded drama schools in UK. My daughter has mentioned Newcastle area, she knows more than me lol Thanks in advance. Maria x

    Proof of funds for 190 visa

    Thanks Marisawright, yes we are seriously considering this, with my husband going as his currently working overseas, away from home. Also his retraining as we speak, as his not prepared to pay out all the costs to retrain in gas, as already completed in UK. so that will reduce outgoings.

    Proof of funds for 190 visa

    Hi Verystormy, $25,000 is a lot to have available in liquid cash, especially if you are not selling your home in UK. I only think this applies if you go without a job and I would not be moving without security of a job. The deal is 1 of us must have a secure job to afford rent and living costs.
