Have you taken ACS assessment ? Is it under 261313>
If you have 65 points, you can apply 189 and I think you will get invite in selection round.

Can you tell me ur point break down?

Hi All,

I have just been rejected from Vic SS. Now NSW doesn't have my occupation in the list (Software Tester). Only option left now is ACT ? Do anybody have an idea what are the chances of software tester coming in the latest list ? and when the list is coming out ?

Also , i am thinking of re applying ACS for software engineer or ICT sytem test engineer , that would give me more chances of getting selected after 6 months in victoria and in other states ? should i go for ACS or wait ?


Opinions ?

Hi Himanshu,

I am in the same boat as yours. I had my skills assessed for software tester in 2012 but due to lack of points, I couldn't apply. This year, I was thinking of going for assessment for ICT system test engineer after confirming whether if it would be in SNOL or not. I applied for assessment on1st july and to my surprise, ICT system test engineer occupation ceiling reached in just 2 days. I was really disappointed.

Now I am.also waiting for ACT to open the nomination. Again for me there is limitation that I have to have 7 in each band. I am appearing for IELTS on 2-aug and I know I am late again for ACT also.

I am wondering no other state except SA and ACT has ICT system test engineer in that list.

Even I am thinking of going assessment again in october again for software engineer. But i have a doubt if I will get the positive assessment as job duties are different from each other.

Please throw some light on this topic.

Regards
Sumi

I was looking at the previous ACT list today and saw that software tester was closed . This time i am not sure even they will include the job code in latest list or not as they have been taking it out from everywhere.


I still need to have a confirmation on which job code should i apply on software engineer and they will count my experience or not , as i saw the responsibilities of the software engineer and it matches only partially with ours.

That is what bothering me also. However, I think the job responsibilities should match only 60-70% with the anzsco code we are applying for. I am not sure though.

Seniors, please confirm.

I am also worried whether if ICT system test engineer would be in july 2015 SNOL. Unfortunately if this will happen, then I dont see any future for myself and my family in Australia :'(

Hi Sumi/Himanshu,

I have the same issue, i got assessed 2.5 years back for SOftware tester , now as 190 is getting lot of rejections , i am thinking to apply for 189 - software engineer/Analyst programmer , The only doubt i have they must be having old records, if we i can mix with previous experience (no contradiction) so that i can put 60-70% of roles of Software engineer..Expresso(Senior Exapt) also advised the same. But i am still 10% unsure to do so.

I am in a dilemma even to proceed now.
Please reply back so that I will atleast know what happens to a generic case like ours.
Wishing you good luck.

Hi paddy,

I have similar case as yours. I am a software tester and have 65 points without state sponsorship. Since Victoria is the only state sponsoring testers I applied for it but got a rejection. Can you tell me how did you proceed with your application?

Hi All,

Can anyone please suggest if they got their skills reassessed from s/w tester to s/w engineer and was it successful? If yes please let us know in this thread. I am also a s/w tester with around 6 years of experience and have got rejection letter from Victoria SS. I am in dilemma should I go for 261313 s/w engineer?

Regards.

Nobody came back to let their experiences with ACS re-assessment!

I've applied couple days back from Systems Analyst to Software Eng since my job duties are very similar for both occupations. I let you guys know.
