I have been coming to terms for a long time with this and have only just mustered the courage to share this with you all. Some time ago I was informed by the CO that my application has been pooled due to lack of points. I have subsequently withdrawn my application and will no longer be going to Australia. Many congrats to those who have received grants (or will receive in the future) and best of luck to everyone.

I am sorry to hear the news. Some people were wondering what happened to you. In any case, you're young enough, so you can always try again under the different point system should you change your mind.

This is really sad news :(, you've helped out alot of members here its sad to see this happen to you. Is there a chance for you to appeal the decision? Are you able to re-apply under the point system available right now?

Wish you all the best with your future.

Leptokurtic, don't be sad. Whatever happened, happened for good. Think it like this, you still have your family with you. You won't be living thousands of miles away from them and will have someone to go to when you're down and blue.
Cheers mate.

So did you miscalculate your points ? Are you in a position to apply for State sponsorship?
Where exactly did you go wrong in the points calculation ?

Sad to hear that. Are you getting a refund at least?

That's sad to hear. But where did you go wrong on the points calculation?

Really sorry to hear this.

As already mentioned, did you miscalculate your points? And I'm guessing state sponsorship is out otherwise you'd have switched.

Have you thought of going down the 457 route?

Please don't give up yet. Who knows, You may actually have better chances due to July 2012 immigration policies.

Cheer up!

I'm really sorry to hear that. You've been so helpful and so encouraging to all of us during our migration journey, so it's doubly sad that you have to go through this.

Please do not give up on your dream. You may be feeling really low right now but where there's a will, there is a way. The new point system is coming in soon and maybe that will open another opportunity for you. As someone has said, try looking for employer sponsorship - it takes a while to find a sponsor but persistence usually pays off.

I have been through this before. It is always hard to wait for the good news and then it turn bad.

Hey there is always a another door waiting for you. Just need to knock the right door next time. Try again OR somewhere else. It is always good to be surrounded by our own friends and family during bad times. Raise yourself to the challenge and you would sail through.

All the best.

Many, many thanks to everyone for the nice words of encouragement. It is reall uplifting to see so much support from everyone.

What went wrong is that the CO had a different opinion of my duties being in accordance with the nominated occupation. In any case, I have gotten over this and I do have some very good opportunities elsewhere which I shall now pursue. Unfortunately, it means I shall no longer be able to join you all in the Australian adventure.

Many thanks once again and I wish everyone the best of luck.

wish you all the best on that next opportunity. Thank you for all your contribution to this thread.

But you were assessed by ACS right? so DIAC can still disregard the skills assessment ?
