2019 was surely a great year. The cut off was 75 in March and climbed to 95 in December. Who knows, the cut off might climb to 130 by the end of next year.

You need to be 25-33 years old, single, 79 in PTE, PhD in STEM in a regional area, PY, naati and have 8 years of working experience in Australia.

You may also need to make a human sacriface and eat their intestines raw. it will give you another 5 points and promote population control.

My guess it will be big round in January seeing this year's trend Big-small-small-Big-small-small. So following that rule it will be big again.
1000-100-100-1500-250-250-2000-500-500-2500-1000-1000... some mathematical series probably...

I think it would be more like:
1000+100+100+1500+250+250+2000+400+400+2500+550+55 0 = 9600

It would be unfair to says so considering points system changed in November. 75 in March to 85 during EOY would be a fair statement.

The funny thing is that some geniuses might actually achieve "130" by hook or by crook only to encounter yet another novel point system introduced by DHA where the new cut off becomes 200 (for instance 50 points if you are living in the Great Victoria Desert or the Great Sandy Desert). Hey migrants might make those places magically turn 'green'.

It's a never-ending wild goose chase.

Well if 491 is to get say to 25000 annual seats then every month atleast close 1500 should be invited to keep that visa on priority Infront of 189. Else if they can't see any success in that then they should stop promoting that visa. But considering that the new folks don't know how bad they will have it if they go regional there might even be people trying for that visa. 189 is feeling 50/50 to ease out over the next year because the department has shown little willpower to increase invites from 100 lowest per month to 250 so there is hope if U want to call this that.
