I am in a dilemma even to proceed now.
Please reply back so that I will atleast know what happens to a generic case like ours.
Wishing you good luck.
I have similar case as yours. I am a software tester and have 65 points without state sponsorship. Since Victoria is the only state sponsoring testers I applied for it but got a rejection. Can you tell me how did you proceed with your application?
