I fear that the new reduced quota would put my invite into great uncertainty. I have been reading updates online and am quoting an analysis posted by someone regarding how the new changes will impact the selection process:


1. Places filling quickly - in this case, accountants should ensure they apply early in the program year; or
2. A higher effective pass mark - Immigration may decide to limit the number of invitations issued to accountants each month. As a result, only the applicants with the highest points score will be invited

I am more fearful of the last scenario. Because, I am sure there would be many applicants with much higher rankings (i.e. > 60 points) than myself already in the pool

I would appreciate any valuable inputs on how to approach this.....(i. Apply under state list as well or ii. re-appear for IELTS and score higher and thus claim extra points)
I do not think anybody knows how DIBP exactly operate when it comes to sending invites to different occupations!!!!
we will all have a clearer picture when they publish the results of 6th of July.

in any case if you can improve your point score then go ahead,

good luck

I'm wondering can we put our information in the google spreadsheet just like those people waiting for NSW nomination. Then we can track out progress on 189 queue. I copied that one and did some modification to better suit for our 189 applicants, link as below:

Hello Everybody,
Can someone advice me on getting 5 points for two year study in Australia, i have consulted lot of people but was unable to get a sound answer. I have done MPA (1.5 yrs with 12 units from Australian University fully assessed by CPA Australia) apart from that i have done Certificate IV in Business Management 1yr from Australian Institute. I applied EOI on 29th April 2015 with 60 point but was not sure about this so did not claimed that, but due to current tough situation after 50% cut i am anxious to add these points if i am eligible to get them if my studies can be considered for two year study criteria.
I am afraid that if i get an invitation and visa officer could refuse my application on claiming these 5 points which he/she do not consider to meet two year study criteria.

Please someone advice me on this, i know we have lot of members here who are experts with lot of experience.

Hi sm8764, you need to check the CRICOS course length, if it takes more than 16 calendar months and span through 2 academic years, then it is safe to claim points. However, beware that some MPA was not counted as having 16 calendar months (expressed in weeks) on CRICOS website.

"You can receive five points if you have completed one or more degrees, diplomas or trade qualifications for award through a course or courses taken at an Australian educational institution.

Your course or courses must:

be registered through the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Course for Overseas Students (CRICOS)
have been completed in a total of at least 16 calendar months
have been completed as a result of at least two academic years of study
have given all instruction in English
have been completed while you were physically in Australia
have been completed while you held a visa authorising you to study in Australia.

A course can be counted only once towards the Australian study requirement. Any failed course subject cannot be counted.

As evidence that you completed the course or courses, you need to provide:

a certified copy of a completion letter from your educational institution, including
the dates the course began and ended
the date the course requirements were met
the location of the campus where you studied
certified copies of course transcripts.

Two academic years of study is defined as 92 weeks of study in a course or courses registered by CRICOS. CRICOS determines a standard duration (number of weeks) for each course.

This is a measure of the amount of study you have completed, rather than of how long it took you to do it. The study does not have to be full time.

You can take longer to complete course work, but you will be credited with the number of weeks that CRICOS determines as a standard duration. For example, if it takes you 92 weeks to complete a course that CRICOS says should take 78 weeks, you will receive credit for 78 weeks only.

If you are given credit for prior learning, you could be exempt from taking a relevant course. An exempted course cannot be counted towards the Australian study requirement. Credit cannot be counted on the basis of study done either overseas or within Australia in a non-CRICOS registered course.

The 92 weeks of study could contribute towards the award of one of more acceptable qualifications. In this instance, the courses of study need not have been done within a 24-month period. It is possible to have a break between completing the first course and beginning the second. "

Hi Guys,

This is my first post here :]
Accountant (general) has its quota halved... as I am expecting to summit my application in seven weeks (60 points without ss), I am quite worried that 65 points is the "actually" requirement considering the little amount of quota comparing to the humongous amount of applicant...
What are your thoughts?

Quoted from an immigration agent, they are also unsure about how DIBP handle the new ceiling with accountant.

"The number of places for Accountants has been SLASHED from over 5000 places to just 2525 this program year.

The effect of this is that most independent skilled visa applicants (189 and 489-relative sponsored) who apply as Accountants will require 65 points or more. Those on 60 points may find they have a long wait or may miss out altogether.

Alternatively DIBP may just issue invitations for Accountants until they use all 2525 places. And based on last year's numbers that will mean the places running out in just 6 months time."

So we have to wait for 6 July and August invitation result analysis to get a bigger picture about DIBP approach.

Quite obvious I guess, the invitation result will be consumed by the leftover applicant from early this year...
It is quite impossible to have a quota increase within the financial year so my blind guess will be a need of 65 points or above.. which I will find quite difficult to get (the extra 5).

Point inflation may exist as many get more language points from doing PTE-A exam, so expect more 65 pointers for Accountant this year. To get ahead of the crowd, you might want to try for IELTS 8 or PTE-A 79 all band.
