I submitted my 189 EOI under accountant (2211) with 60 points on the 31st of March 2015 (After literally pushing my agent to do so). I too have not received any invite during 6th of July Rounds. I fear that the new reduced quota would put my invite into great uncertainty. I have been reading updates online and am quoting an analysis posted by someone regarding how the new changes will impact the selection process:

1. Places filling quickly - in this case, accountants should ensure they apply early in the program year; or
2. A higher effective pass mark - Immigration may decide to limit the number of invitations issued to accountants each month. As a result, only the applicants with the highest points score will be invited

I am more fearful of the last scenario. Because, I am sure there would be many applicants with much higher rankings (i.e. > 60 points) than myself already in the pool

I would appreciate any valuable inputs on how to approach this.....(i. Apply under state list as well or ii. re-appear for IELTS and score higher and thus claim extra points)
