  1. Paying with a debit card would solve the problem, wouldn't it?
  2. 19th February hasn't been so long ago, Boss2468. Try priority group 5, where people wait for years.

    I agree with xlornax. If there's a way forward then take it. Let IELTS sit for a while. Also, I wouldn't put much hope in the remark, or the whole IELTS process in general. But good luck!
  4. Up until I was 10-12 I wanted to be a confectioner/pastry cook. I don't really recommend it now. Then I went to high school (maths+some IT), that was good, I liked it and I was really good at maths and especially chemistry. Every time my physics teacher asked what uni will we attend, I always said chemistry and he always replied "I don't believe that / I don't believe you". University was like this: Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, first 2 years general stuff, then last 2 years of finance & banking specialization (other choices for the last 2 years were marketing, economic informatics (is the wording right??)). Then followed one more year of master's studies: Corporate Finance. Always made my own decisions, but some advice would have been welcome. Currently I can wipe my bee-hind with my diplomas, only opportunities in the finance sector are: info desk/teller/selling insurance at banks = no thank you, you can keep your small commissions; or the Business Process Outsourcing sector, which has equally low wages as the former I mentioned, plus killer work hours. So: I do recommend the IT sector, engineering, and the likes. Do give some advice to the kids, not everybody can be or should be a singer, a ballerina, join the army/police, etc. In my view the majority of youngsters these days are not realistic. Getting their heads out of the clouds would be welcome.

    Bring my parents to Australia.

    I've read some months ago (maybe even a year) that parents could go on some sort of extended tourist visa - 12 months, don't know what came of it. Edit after a couple of days: "long stay tourist visa" is the one as I've read recently in another comment.

    IELTS Remark

    @Nike : That is massive back luck. It is hard to get a better score through remark on the listening and reading modules in general, you either wrote the correct answer or not. With the writing and speaking there is a chance for a different interpretation from a different examiner - but in general I wouldn't count on the goodwill of the British Council. If you need the 8s then you need to sit it again.
  10. @TeeTMI @Alnaibii @wrussell : It's English, but I don't get it (perhaps because banking works a bit differently where I am now) : “Credit card merchant fees to be charged to applicants” “to enable the recovery of” - does this mean that DIBP will charge a certain amount when migrants pay their VACs? Or the department has lost something it needs to “recover” from certain people?

    How did they find out who she was if she wasn't using her real name on Twitter?
