Ielts

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I was feeling quite positive about sending my application for SS/WA today until I received my IELTS results... and the reading again just was not good enough.... I feel absolutely lost now as this would of been my last chance to apply. I have spent months preparing and going through the stages and this stage I just get slammed every time, have taken my IELTS more than once and it's just a joke :em4600:

To think now that before the 1st July all is lost.... and money... is there any hope?!!!

 

I want to say a huge thanks though to everyone who has helped me come this far......

I just don't know... I was going to apply to the state but now with all the new legislation in I haven't even looked to see if this will all suffice in the new rules? MY vetassess is positive, it's just my ielts that is the nightmare... :-( does anyone know much on the new rules as does the process still apply?

Write a letter to the immigration minister explaining the situation. If you are a native English speaker, a poor result on th IELTs test says more about the test than it does about your language skills. Address below:

 

Chris Bowen MP

Minister for Immigration and Citizenship

Parliament House

M1/45

Canberra ACT 2600

Its absurd that a native English speaker should need to take this test - I almost fell off my chair in shock when I found this out. I am a while away from applying for the visa, but may try and get the test out of the way as soon as possible.

 

I hope you manage to sort something out in this crazy situation. As someone else has said - it says more about the test than it does about your language ability.


Counting down the days until we emigrate... 28th March 2016, Melbourne here we come...

A UK, Irish, Canadian or Yank passport is adequate to satisfy English language requirements for General Skilled migration. Equivalent to IELTS 6.0

 

But most people who are short of points usually because of age and low scoring qualifications use the IELTS to scrape up extra points, if they made the thing too easy so just any native English speaker can get 8.0 (20 points) straight up then whats the point of having the points system in the first place.
