IELTS Visa Requirements

    Recommended Posts

    Guest sjbudd

    Hi

     

    I am applying for a 175 - Skilled, Independant visa and am currently having my skills assessed by the Australian Computing Society.

     

    I am currently 10 points short for this Visa, however I have recently sat the IELTS test(s) and have achieved the following scores: -

     

    Listening 8.5

    Reading 6.5

    Writing 9.0

    Speaking 9.0

     

    Overall 8.5

     

    Have I done enough to guarantee the extra points required?

     

     

    Many Thanks

    Hi,

    I think you just miss out on the extra points, I quite sure you need 7 in each of the 4 units so your reading has let you down, get a little practice in and take the test again, getting the 175 visa will be worth a little bit more time and effort.:)

    Hi, double check but I think you just need an overall mark over 7, only the overall mark counts.

    Yep, you need to raise the reading score to 7 at least.

     

    hope this helps

    Thank you for all the responses.

     

    I kind of thought that that was the case, serves me right for rushing/ skimming parts of the reading element. Was running out of time...

     

    Hopefully better luck next time.

     

     

    Cheers
