Default IELTS score for State Sponsorship?

Can anybody suggest me if my IELTS score is applicable for any of the Australia State sponsorship

IELTS Score
Reading 7
Writing 6.5
Speaking 7
Listening 8.5

I am sure I dont meet the points criteria for 175 since you require 7 in each band.I missed out in writing.

Currently my total points is 55 and I need 10 more to be eligible for 175.I was wondering if any of the states allows overall band score rather each band.

Else the last option what I can think of is to reapply for IELTS.

Please suggest.

if you want to claim 10 points for IELTS then you must score at least 7 in each band, overall 7 will not do.

If you need additional 10 points, then successful Regional SS (475) which is temporary residence(not PR) for 3 years, can give you 10 points.

As far as I know, NT will allow you to apply for SS without having 65 points already. But may be you need to attain 65 points before applying to NSW for SS, otherwise they might not consider you as eligible. Actually I am not quite sure, just read this somewhere. Senior expats might confirm you this. Also you can check their website to figure it out.

I would suggest to sit for IELTS one more time, give it a try.

Does somebody know? And then ss only gives you 5 points in the test, or am i mistaken?
