Did any one got invited and were successful in getting visa with wrong PTE registration number and/or date in EOI.

I only replaced the PTE score for the latest attempt where I could claim 20 points for english while earlier attempt had 10 points but forgot to double check PTE registration and date as I wasn't very careful besides not expecting invite on this 489 EOI for family Sponsorship in pro rata.

Now it seems like visa application will get rejected and might cost me money and/or ban. Have any one experienced something similar?

For example: PTE date and registration is for December 2018 attempt while PTE score is for June 2019 attempt.

I heard from a renowned immigration consultant that DHA is thinking and might soon exclude the PTE-A exam from its list for immigration purposes as candidates more than ever before are getting 20 points with 79 each. How true is it? Have anyone heard such kind or news?
However, they will continue to accept PTE-A for study assessment and for student visa purposes.

Not sure. I saw a couple of posts in the forum recent days mentioning the same. I suggest not to trust such false news unless it is published by DHA or legitimate government body.

However, it might true or might not. But, if it is true, which means they don't have trust in evolving technologies and going back to basics of written exams such as IELTS.

Even IELTS is providing computer based examination with the motivation of PTE though full scale version is yet ready across the world. So, I do not think they will take such decision of not accepting PTE for immigration.

No need to be panic I believe, lets do our best and rest should be assured.

Dear Experts,

I just want to know about IELTS Academic and IELTS general. My wife has started preparing for IELTS academic for upcoming changes in November so that I can gain 5 extra spouse points. We are unaware of the type of exam required for immigration for a spouse. Can my wife take IELTS academic? or she should appear for IELTS general. I couldn't find much information on the immigration website. Can anyone please guide me? Thanks in advance.

Realpte.com is very helpful. I practiced with them and got 85 for writing and 90 for others.

In terms of level of complexity I think the general is easier to get passing grades unless your wife might use the language for uni applications. But mind you the materials you could find online are a bit out of date, and the exams are more difficult than before. I just took my ielts in July and could notice the difference from last year.

Thanks, bro for the valuable information. In academic, the reading section will give 6 band on 23 correct answers while in the General 6 band is on 28 correct answers. Don't know she will get 28 or not . Well, my main query is, whether Aus immigration people will accept IELTS academic for Skilled immigration? I am the main applicant and I am preparing for PTE while my wife is preparing for IELTS, but i don't know if immigration will accept IELTS academic or general. Because normally, academic is only acceptable for Study visa
