    Question after 189 lodged

    Hi all, I have my 189 visa (with my husband together) submitted. We are offshore from low risk area. We have done the health check. I am wondering do we need to apply for police check now. If so, when should we apply for police check? We both have stayed in Australia for 4-7 years during our studies 5 years ago. Do we need to apply for police check before we are allocated a CO? Or we should wait till the CO request us to do so. Moreover, where do we need to apply for police check? both in Australia or only in our country? The 2nd question is we are newly married just before my submission of EOI. We have been together for 4 years but just started to live together after married. Do I have to upload any other evidence besides the marriage certificate to prove our relationship? Christy

    IELTS test

    I am a non-native English speaker. When I did my IELTS, my English tutor (who is native) told me IELTS looks at your English EXAM skills. So make sure you do everything correctly, like spelling and grammar. Don't use any word that you are not sure about the spelling. They penalise any spelling and grammar mistakes. For writing, read some sample articles that scored 8+ to get some ideas how they structure the articles. Follow the structure they required. Use some linker words and give examples on your argument. You can surely find some samples from google. For reading and listening, for me, just do more practice tests. This two papers have model answers, so just do the practices. I can get 8.5 and 9 easily after some practices. For speaking, my tutor asked me to avoid using slang, use proper English and make sure it's grammatically correct. (though he said the examiners have higher tolerance on grammatical mistakes on Speaking test than writing test. Hope this help.
