Finally, I received my grant today (04 March) for me, my wife and my child!!!
No points for spouse claimed.

Industrial Engineer 233511
EOI 189 - 70 points (DOE 08. Feb 2018)

Invited: 11.Oct 2018
Visa Lodged: 03.Nov 2018
CO contact: 29. Jan 2019
Replied to CO: 21. Feb 2019
Grant: 04. Mar 2019

It was a very long way as exactly 3 years ago I started to prepare my docs for Australia. I would like to thank everybody who helped me to achieve my goals! I wish you all a speedy grant! Donīt forget that everything is happening for a reason and even some delays are sometime better than fast and direct grants! You never know..

Just want to share my story:
Three years ago I started to prepare my docs for skilled assessment which took about 6 months to finalize. Afterwards, I thought 60 points in my occupation would be enough to get an invite. My aim was to get 7 in IELTS and only with this score I could lodge my EOI with 60 points. I was preparing very hard during 3 months and could only score L/R/S/W- 6.5/7/6/6.5
My English has never been good because I started to learn it only with 25 years (now Iīm 35).

Then, I realized that I canīt improve in IELTS anymore and started to prepare for PTE. I joined e2language subscription and three months after IELTS I could get this score in PTE in March 2017 L/R/S/W- 82/70/90/76. It was unbelievable for me and I was so happy! So I had 60 points and lodged my EOI in March 2017.

After 5 months I realized that I will never get an invite with 60 points and started to prepare for 79+ in PTE. In that time my wife delivered a baby and after work (I work fulltime 8 hours a day) I came home and couldnīt learn properly because it was not easy with a small baby. We have no relatives who could help us.. So I could only learn after 11 p.m. until midnight every evening after my wife and baby went to bed. I used every minute for learning (in the train on the way to work, walking with baby or even in WC). So there should be no excuses about lack of time or energy!

I needed to go to another city 500km for exam. I spend a lot of money and energy! My wife always asked for help with the baby, so my priority was a family and then learning! However, whole my struggle was worth it and I scored the desired score on the 6th of February 2018 - L/R/S/W- 80/81/90/80 in my seventh attempt! So I had 70 points in February 2018 but realized one month later that those 70 points in my occupation will not suffice to get an invite. I couldnīt increase my points anymore and just waited until July 2018. In July nothing has changed and no one with 70 points has been invited. Then, the same happened in August and September. But, finally in October 2018 the number of invites has been increased and I received my invite as well. I was very happy that finally after 8 month of waiting with 70 points I was invited.. I lodged my application in November and in January2019 was contacted by CO for additional PCC for my wife. I provided requested information on 21st of February and after 10 days I received a grant (only 10 days after CO contact).

Iīve had been following this forum for 3 years. I helped some people with my tips and many people help me as well! I would only say that never give up and always believe in yourself!!
Thanks to all who helped me! I would be more than happy to help you guys!! Please ask me whatever you want!!

P.S.: in my grant, the passport number is wrong. Whom should I contact to correct it?


Truly, one of the many inspiring life events has been penned down so nicely!
Congratulations to you and your family!

E2 Language has helped me to clear PTE in 2nd attempt itself with 79+

Forum members have helped me with crucial information which no other site or even MARA agents could have shared.

And then, these inspiring stories keep us motivated all the way in our quest for the much awaited Golden Email!

Where there's a WILL, there is definitely a WAY! :clap2:
