IELTS score needed ...6 or 7?

Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,


I am preparing for IELTS. I am applying for 190 subclass as Systems Administrator.

How much do I need to score 6 or 7? I have read that though 6 qualifies,7 is what some states ask for sponsorship....:unsure:

Can anyone help me know the actual situation?

It depends on the state. All 6s is the DIAC minimum and some states don't specify anything higher. Some will specify a higher requirement but only for some occupations. You'll need to refer to the migration site for the state in question.

Also of course, many applicants need higher IELTS inorder to get to the 60 points required that they need before they can submit an EOI or get an invite.

thanks for the info




An overall IELTS band score is irrelevant for DIAC purposes. Applicants must achieve at least 6 or 7 (or 8) as applicable - on every sub-test,
