Question Doubts about clamming more points for the 189, 190 and 489 visa (and the 500 visa)

Hello forum! First, I want to say that the amount of information that there is here is massive! A big thank you to all who are making this possible!

Now, I would like to ask a couple of questions here, because I知 a little lost and the levels of anxiety are rising more and more as the days go by.

Mi situation is the following:

- I知 living outside Australia and I want to get a visa in order to migrate to Oz.
- I have presented an EOI on May 2018 after a long path of English studies and seeking validation of my career and work experience with Engineers Australia (I知 a Telecommunications Engineer with 6 years of work experience outside Australia, validated by Engineers Australia).
- I知 37 years old.
- According to the EOI I have: 60 points for the 189 visa, 65 points for the 190 visa, and 70 points for the 489 visa (as you see, I REALLY want to go to Australia ).

I have seen the invitation rounds and they are selecting candidates with 75 points onwards. So, I have two plans:

Plan A: I was thinking on taking the IELTS again to get an 8 on each band (now I have a 7 on each one) and add 10 points to de visas in this way:

- 70 points to the 189 visa
- 75 points to the 190 visa
- 80 points to the 489 visa

So, my first question is: It痴 possible to get the 189 or 190 visas with 70 or 75 points, respectively? What about the 489 visa?

Plan B: If plan A is not enough to get an invitation, I知 planning on get a student visa (subclass 500). In this way, I can get 5 points after two years for study (20 hours per week), and 5 points after one year of work (20 hours per week). In this way I could get, after the first year of work, the following scores (assuming I took IELTS with an 8 on each band):

- 75 points to the 189 visa
- 80 points to the 190 visa
- 85 points to the 489 visa

At this point, I will be invited for sure I think. After the second year (I will by 39 then, risky...), I will get the following scores:

- 80 points to the 189 visa
- 85 points to the 190 visa
- 90 points to the 489 visa

Here I will be invited for sure, again.

So, my second question is: Is this immigration plan correct? What do you think?

Going deep on my Plan B, in order to add points to my EOI I need to study something that is allowed to add points in the section of 鄭ustralian study requirement by studying at least one degree, diploma or trade qualification from an Australian educational institution. The thing is that I need to study something that is related to my degree, but I don稚 know how I can be sure if the Diploma (I think this is the bes option over a degree or trade qualification) I choose to study will be related to it.

So, my third question is: How can I know if the Diploma I've chosen for studying is related to my career (Telecommunications Engineering)?

I have so many more questions, but in order not to abuse of your generosity, I will stop here.

I will really appreciate any hint of light that you can throw over the darkness of my doubts.

Thank you!

I suggest you to stick to plan A. It is more reasonable and has the potential to be a reality.
But plan B, with lots of uncertainties from your side as well as the immigration policies, doesn't really look realistic. A lot can change in two years and your assumptions today may not be valid after two years when you complete your study. Considering your age factor and other things, plan B will be a tightrope walk.
And, consider PTE rather than the IELTS to improve your score.
