IELTS v.s Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) | My personal findings
By The Smith ClanI am studying for IELTS and came across this
The AASW may grant an exemption from the requirements where the applicant provides evidence that they: • Completed all secondary education, that was taught and assessed in English, in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Republic of Ireland, South Africa, United Kingdom or United States of America, AND; • Successfully completed (with a pass grade or higher) the equivalent of three years or more full-time tertiary study (at Bachelor Degree level or higher), that was taught and assessed in English, in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Republic of Ireland, South Africa, United Kingdom or United States of America.
Has anyone met this criteria?
I passed English at GCSE level, A Level and have a degree in Social work?
Thanks in advance.
By Student_RNHi guys!
I am a Nursing student and I am planning to apply for skilled visa as soon as I finish my studies. In order to secure visa process I would like to get superior English result.
Can you please tell me if anyone succeeded to gain all "A" in OET? Is it possible? I prefer this one as it is specific to nursing, but I have some doubts if it is possible to get all As.
Or maybe PET is a better choice as it is needed to get more than 79 in all parts which sounds a bit more realistic. Can you please share your experience about these two tests?
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.
