IELTS v.s Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) | My personal findings
By Guest Magnetic6The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia have stated on their website that first time applicants for registration purposes no longer need to have taken IELTS if they've completed their secondary education and nurse/midwifery training in English.
At last a completely sensible decision.
Hopefully this will remove some of the stress and barriers to moving to Australia.
Luckily i've sat it and passed, but i know a lot on here haven't and it's got naff all to do with their standard of English.
Happy days :cool:
By Placid CasualI'm intending to express interest in the 189 Skilled Independent visa and have a simple question regarding the points system.
I will have 30 points for age, 10 for education and 10 for occupational experience so a total of 50 points.
Will I get English language points by default as a British Citizen with a British Passport or do I still need to take a IELTS test to gain the extra 10 (min) points that I would need to qualify for invitation?
I did try searching this forum and others but have found it difficult to get a clear response, I read somewhere that as a British Citizen I would be awarded 15 points for language by default. Is this correct?
By Stuart16Hi all,
I'm new to the forum, very interesting reading everyone's comments good and bad. I'm 34 and will be moving over with my wife and our young daughter, can't wait for a new adventure.
Submitted my EOI carpenter subclass 190 today with 60 points. Received my IELTS score this morning, very frustrating as I could've done with the 20 points. My results were-
Speaking - 8.5
So close yet so far, seriously annoying but anyway EOI submitted and I'll probably give them more money and sit it again.
Are there any carpenters on here who have received an invite on 60 points recently?
Thanks in advance.
I have few queries regarding 887 pre requisite.
To apply for 887 applicant must fulfil the criteria of 2yr stay in designated area and 1 yr full employment.
My question is.
1. Above rule apply only to primary applicant?
2. What if primary applicant have completed 2 yr but dependent have not cometed 2yr in designated. Can a primary applicant still apply for 887?
3. IELTS/PTE is required again if last IELTS score is more than 3yr?

I have just submitted my Engineers Australia (EA) migration skills assessment application based on my degree qualifications only. This includes BEng civil engineering degree under Washington Accord and a further MSC degree.
I did not include an English competency test as I am British and a native English speaker (trying to temporarily save money on test). I also did NOT submit an additional assessment for my skilled employment as I did not think they were necessary to get a successful outcome from EA.
I have 2 queries I hope you can help me with please:
1. I subsequently have booked an IELTS test as I now realise I need this for my EOI to gain the points. Am I able to append my IELTS results to my EA application or does the English competency not really matter for EA?
2. Do I need to have my employment assessed by EA using the additional assessment service? Or can I demonstrate my employment during my EOI application on skills select?
My points summary
I am almost 37 with 10 years work experience in civil engineering. Therefore I'm claiming 25 points for age, 15 points for qualifications, 15 points for UK work experience. This gives me 55 points but i need 60 so hopefully by taking the IELTS I will get the additional 5.
Can anybody help clarify my 2 queries as I'm concerned I rushed my EA application in my eagerness to get the ball rolling and that I've messed up by not including a work experience request or an English test result.
