Heather, 475 is the answer. I'm resitting the IELTS in Feb to try to achieve 8 in reading,writing and listening. The last time I sat it I scored 7.5 in all and 9 in speaking. If I get the correct result and the Emigration group get me 10 points for my diploma or trade qualification then bingo! I should get the visa in 8 to 10 weeks. This will mean moving out and staying in South Australia for 2 years and working for at least 1 year subject to selling my house for the £20k needed for me and a further 10K per family member.
