well what a thread i started here, never thought it would get this much interest:D.
when i was finishing putting my TRA together i was starting to panic if i could make the "deadline" thinking the worst because im not the luckiest of people! the TRA was submitted AUG 15. but as i see it it has to be the visa before SEPT 01. i dont think i would have made the deadline anyway.
so i emailed my agent and she told me not to worry because i have enough points and i wont have to do the IELTS test for extra points. PHEW this how my points were made up
Dear Paul You shouldn't need to do the English test.
After 1/9, your points will be Skill-60, occupation on MODL-15, Age-25,
English-15 (this is automatic for UK passport holders), and 10 for Specific
Work Experience - a total of 125. As the pass mark is 120, you pass without
higher English marks.
so that got me wondering how many other people were thinking/feeling the same, seems like a lot of us!
good luck to all that are fighting for every point, hope you make it
all the best
