English requirement for visa 885

Recommended Posts

Guest cutieCool

Hi all,

 

I am currently on bridging visa A for visa 485. I would like to apply for visa 885 which I understand it requires band 8 in each categories. However, I do not know if I should take the Academic module or general module for the ielts test. Some told me I need to take academic module for Permanent Resident skilled assessment. But I have already received my skilled assessment for Registered Nurse while applying for visa 485. So I am really confused now if i should take academic module or general module for the english test ? as I find general module is easier.

Technically saying,

Academic is required when you are applying for Student Visa.

 

Later on for extension of student visa, GSM or any other subclass you can take General Module.

 

You need to get 7.0 or 8.0 bands(which ever is required as per ur needs), it doesn't matter to DIAC which module u picked for your test.

 

Cheers!
