Can someone please share the roles and responsibilities for a tester with SQL and automation experience. I want to be assessed under 261313 "Software Engineer" and my current designation is Test Lead.

Hello Friends,

I am sailing in the same boat. Got positive assessment for 261314(Software Tester) on June 14th 2016. Got my PTE scores of 72 last week (5th November 2016) and I get 10 points for that. Now I have to file an EOI under 190 sub class for Victoria, followed by an application for Victorian State Sponsorship. At present I have 60 points. 5 points for SS.

I have to rethink now going for Victorian State sponsorship considering so many rejections for Software Tester (261314). Even I want to get a re assessment from ACS and this time for Software Engineer (261313). At this stage, I have following questions :

1. Is it still possible to get a reassessment since the ACS website says " An Appeal or Review can only be lodged within 60 days of your result letter being issued." ??
2. Does getting a reassessment for another job code(261313 Software Engineer) voids the earlier positive result which I got for Software Tester (261314) ? I am afraid if it does.
3. I believe if I get a positive assessment for Software Engineer(261313), I can apply for both 189/190, with 60 points.

Please get me know the answers. Greatly appreciate your help.

Hi rkrcr

Victoria has closed ANZCO 261314 (Software Tester). No more SS for software tester until further notified.

I am in the same boat now. I am planning to apply for ACS again under Software Engineer with no change in my statutory declaration as I have mentioned performance testing, associated scripting.

You can file a review application and link it with your earlier application. But you will not be able to remove any document that you had attached. This is confirmed by ACS authorities. I have mailed the ACS authorities to know whether a review application under the new ANZCO code will override the existing qualification. I will keep this thread posted.

Regards
Prakash

Hi rkrcr

I have received a confirmation from the ACS authorities that the ACS qualification under my old application for ANZCO code Software Tester will be valid.

Go ahead and apply for software engineer, once you recieve the ACS qualification letter, you can either use software tester / engineer for EOI.

All the best. Please keep this thread posted!

Prakash

Hi Prakash,

Thank you so much for your reply. Here is my present status.

Since I got to know that Victoria will be closing Software Tester (261314) temporarily from 11th Nov 2016, I had applied for SS and EOI a day before, i.e., on 10th Nov 2016, under 190 subclass. I got a reply from Victoria with a reference number and my file is under process. I just took a chance.

I got to know about the ACS route for Software Engineer(261313) so that I can fall under 189. But I wanted to give a shot to Software Tester with 190 sub class and went ahead and filed EOI and Vic SS and now waiting for results.

If I am lucky to receive a SS for Victoria, then well and good. If I get the rejection, then I will go for ACS again to get assessed for Software Engineer(261313), for this I believe again I need to pay the fees.

Please let me know if you have any other suggestion to me at this point of time. I heard lot of people filing multiple EOI for different states under 190 subclass. But I just applied for Victoria SS under 190 subclass and that was my last step. Since NSW does not have Software Tester in their Occupation list, I cannot apply for it under 190 subclass. I looked at Queensland too but they need 70 points for Software Tester. Currently I have 60 points and 5 points for Vic SS, if I get it.

Thanks again for your reply. Also I wanted to know if you already got the ACS reassesment for Software Engineer(261313). Please keep this thread postedd. Also if you wish, please leave me a private message with your number so that we can connect offline. I am from Bangalore.

Thanks,
Ravindra

Hi Guys, Just question, Is it good to change ANZSCO from ICT Business Analyst to Software Engineer for ACS assesment? I have recently finished Professional Year Program and need to submit my application to ACS for Post Study Visa Assessment. So that I can apply for 189 visa. Before starting my Professional year program with ACS, I had assessed with ICT Business analyst because I graduated from Bachelor degree in ICT Business Analyst in Melbourne. During my professional year program, I have able to find work as Website Developer. I have been working as Website developer from last one year. NOW, I had finished Professional year program and have one year work experience. So should I do assessment as Software Engineer instead Business Analyst? Please help Many thanks

Hi Friends,

I had applied for SS earlier for Software Tester(261314) to Victoria 2 weeks ago. I have received a reply from Victoria asking for my detailed CV. I had provided a CV but they requested me to send a detailed CV. Does anyone of you have a Australian CV format for Software Tester. Could you please give me a sample. I need to send my detailed CV to Victoria at the earliest. Appreciate all your help.

Thanks,
Ravindra

Hi Ravindra,

I am also in similar situation. I too want to get ACS reassessment on 261313 although i got positive assessment on 261314. However my Roles and Responsibilities is similar to that of 261314 and i dont want to change it for reassessment. Do you know if there is any chance that ACS might give negative assessment saying to stick to 261314 as my RnR is more matching to that of Software Tester?
