  1. Hi, I am new to this site and wish to share my thoughts for those who are in the same boat with me. I appied for GSM 175 Accountant on August 2008. I obtained 130points and agent advised that I DO NOT require a State Sponsor as SS are for those who do not achieve the passing mark at 120points. Further to this, you require to live and work in the specific State if you apply for a State Sponsor. So ok, sounds better for Independant Visa compare to SS. After the 23 Sept struck, the SS now has more priority than those without. Then, I started to look for SS few months later, hopefully to get a higher priority. To my surprise, all states requires minimum IELTS 7 effective July 2009, previously was 6. I did not achieve 7 for my IELTS. I wish I do not obtain 130points and get a SS at that time. My friend who applied few months later than me, as an Accountant too, with his 100 points and IELTS below 7, got a SS, and now has a CO allocate. SO whats the point of achieving 130points when you do not get priority processing compare to those with 100points ??? If DIAC and States wishes to change their requirement, I wish they will look into every details before making any changes. Its so unfair for Accountants like me. And does IELTS really gives you the overall judgment? I had put so much effort on my career and obtaining 130 points doesn't come easily!! Don't tell me that SS has more priority compare to those CAT 6, look at the applicant's details and their qualification!! Now, my friend is teasing me on this matter :cry: So unfair for ACCOUNTANTS without SS :mad:
