..and much much more!

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am currently going through my 190 visa process, I have completed stage 1 and have my vetasses plumbing practical in Blackburn in September.

It would be very much appreciated if there’s anyone that can touch base and give me a heads up on the day itself i.e the practical , the interview, what’s involved in the day and is white anything extra to revise, touch up on?

I have researched and revised all my relevant components for my skill, and familiarised myself with what I think will come up.

If there’s anything that you guys think I could do with knowing that would be epic as I am struggling to find much apart from what vetasses provide you with.

 

many thanks 

 

Matt

Hi Matt, I’m also heading to Blackburn on the 18th of September. Like you I’m struggling to find info regarding the assessment, Have you had any luck?

Blackburn college? have you all had to take an IELTS exam? 

Hi Mart. 

My mistake, mines at Prtc in Burnley. I haven’t had to take my IELTS as the wife is the main applicant. I’m only required to do it as it’s a licensed trade. We need as many points as we can get 😂

Yeah glad I managed to dodge that one 😂She did the ielts a number of times and got fed up of coming so close to the 4 x 8’s we required. She swapped to the Pearson test I believe and got the required points first time! We are just waiting to get an invite at the moment. Currently on 75 points. Hoping my assessment gives us the boost needed before the November changes. 

How about yourself?

Amazing! I’m still at early stages, got skills assessment in sept but still require the points from IELTS!! Very frustrating. Then eoi how long did it take you from the stage I’m at?

We have been going about 11 months so far I would say. 

I would definitely suggest looking into the PEARSON test! Much better according to the wife

Thanks for the advice, going to give the IELTS another shot as I have invested so much time and money into it. Going to give the Pearson’s a go if the result is again, unsuccessful! Good luck with everything
