Default Occupation GONE!

I left my run too late...

OK, so my occupation (College & Vocational Teachers) has dissapeared...
Thankfully my husband's is still on the list, (Contractors & supervisors, Carpentry trade). I was achieving more points than he (73 / 71) but now it's up to him!

I've read the new restrictions, and it seems it will slow things considerably, accepting up to only 1000 of each profession each year...

Honestly though, I see lots of jobs for carpenters, but the feedback suggests getting work is tough. Does he really have a chance to earn a decent wage, enough to keep us going...

Ouch!
Only just put in my application and my occupation has now disappeared.
Not good news.
I guess I am going to have to wait and see if it got processed before 26th.

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I seek your advice in the following matter:

I have been working as a Mechanical Maintenance Engineer for the last 2.5 years. In the latest skilled occupation list, I went through all the relevant occupations and found out that the description of the occupation:
7216 Contractors and Supervisors, Mechanic Trades
is very close to my job description. I mean I've been supervising the machinery (pumps, turbines, compressors, etc) personnel for the last 2.5years. But while going through the description of the aforementioned occupation, I came to know that for employment one needs to have a secondary school certificate while I am bachelors in Mech Engg! I mean can I still apply for immigration knowing that my job description matches that mentioned in the description of this occupation, although I have a higher degree? or only those with secondary school certificates can apply for immigration in this context??

One more thing, can anyone tell me what would be the total charges of immigration for my wife and me?

Thanks @baalat!
I have some more questions:

1. I have registered for IELTS (Academic) and going to take the same in a couple of weeks. I was told by a friend of mine that IELTS (Academic) could be used both for immigration as well as academic purposes; that's why I enrolled for it. But going through the Immigration manual EG7, I came to know that the requirement was IELTS (General). Please tell me whether I would need to take IELTS (General) again before launching my application or IELTS (Academic) score would suffice?

2. What does this mean: "A maximum of 20,000 Federal Skilled Worker applications, without an offer of arranged employment, will be considered for processing each year.
Within this limit, a maximum of 1,000 Federal Skilled Worker applications per National Occupation Classification (NOC) will be considered for processing each year."??

3. I born in Pakistan and do have a birth certificate. My wife born in Libya and came to Pakistan after 5-6 years. She's living here since then. She don't have a birth certificate. Is the birth certificate necessary? What are the complications, we would have to face during application procedure, keeping in view the aforementioned situation?

Your replies to these questions are really vital for me!
Thanks in advance
BR,
Ammaar Tahir
