Got direct grant yesterday. 8:43am IST
Timeline below:

May 2017: Sparked to pursue PR (Canada)


June-August2017: IELTS prep, got CLB9 (LRWS 8.5, 9, 7, 8.5)


August2017-Jan2018: Chased past employers for reference letters, salary slips etc. Submitted EE profile (Canada)

Jan2018-Mar2018: Eagerly waited for OINP invite. Trends were speaking high cut offs which was not possible to meet (given my age and qualifications) before IELTS score expiry.


March 2018: Sparked to pursue PR (Australia).


March2018-June2018: Wrote reference letters by myself for 3 out of 4 employers and got SD done.* Mid June2018 got positive ACS for 8+ years experience (software engineer). Submitted EOI at 65 points with rhe thought that PTE Will give me +10 and. Explored PTE (dropped IELTS re-attempt)


June2018-November2018: Work pressure, unstable team, had anxiety issues. Wanted to, but couldn't focused on PTE consistently but somehow did preparation.


Nov2018-Dec2018: Surgical strike on PTE, managed to focus, accelerate and plan the exam date - Jan 5, 2019 (first thing to do in New Year) with the hope to crack it and get invited in Jan 11, 2019 round.


Jan 5, 2019 : PTE attempt 3-6pm IST


Jan 6, 2019 few hours past midnight got PTE result in mail box. Straight 90 score. Jumped with Joy*


Jan 6, 2019: Around 8am IST saw the report card. Immediately called my consultant to update my EOI. Soared up to 75 points.


Jan 11, 2019: A minute past midnight (Australia time) got 189 invite. Read that email few minutes post 7pm IST. Jumped with Joy.


Jan 11 - Jan 25: Consultant created the application online for 189 which I scrutinized for every minute detail. Submitted with fees (no doc attached) on Jan 25. Fees was for a family of 3.

Had a deep concern if CO will ask to get. Reference letter from current employer on company letterhead.


Jan 25 - Mar 9: Document upload. Passport renewal for spouse, PCC for both, Medicals.


Mar 9 - April 28: Waiting, checking on groups and forums, following up with consultant. Forgot up all concerns in mind and hoped for direct grant. Consultant suggested to attach latest salary slips of 2019 and also sent mail to DHA for feedback on applications.*


April 29, 2019 8:43am IST: Direct Grant. Could have jumped with Joy but was just outside voting booth. Wife did burst into tears of joy.


Next Steps (not in order)

- Job searches

- Set finances into motion

- Plan on dates (IED)

- resignation

- Travel to Australia


Bottom line (pardon for Hindi): in short it means keep the fire in belly and be passionate about efforts.
