Recommended Posts

Ok I needed the extra pionts of 8 for each section in the itels just got my results today and only got 7's!!!

if only they'd give people 15 points to score all 7's, then that problem would be solved. Isn't it strange that a 7 to 8 gets you from 10 to a whopping 20 points? lol

 

Anyway, a 176 will only score you five extra points, so if you had to get 20 in IELTS, I assume at the moment you only have 45 points? With your 7's, it'll be 55, and with 176 it'll go up to 60 - still not enough. The only way to go right now would be the 457 - that fetches you 20 points, but you have to find a job in Oz first. :arghh:

 

I think you should still take the IELTS test again - even if you decide for 457. It'll give you two open fronts to get in

Better yet, you should do the visa wizard with your current points and see what your options are

If you only lack 5pts you can go for 475 Visa.
