IELTS exemption

Recommended Posts

I 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.

Don't know that specific exemption, but if you are claiming points for English you would still need to do it.

Yes, I've come across it. As Verystormy says though, even if you manage to avoid IELTS for the skills assessment, you will still very likely need it for points at the visa stage - it will be the General version of the IELTS test for points though - PTE is another popular option.

Thanks both, I spoke to my agent today and they confirmed I will be ok for skills assessment but will need for points.  At least that speeds my submission of skill assessment application.
