Hello Guys,
Pls update this thread who are yet to apply for ACS skill assessment after 8th Feb 2010.

Most IMP dates:
POINTS TEST will change from 12th Feb and will be open for public on 12th March.
[URL="http://immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/faq-points-test.pdf"[/URL]

CSL will cease to exist somewhere around June/July.

As applicants are yet to apply for skill assessment some comments from experts can help to cope the new change, this thread might be useful. :)

Hello Kishore,
I shall be applying on 19th march 2010.

PROS
1. If we get +ve assessment from ACS before new SOl is implemented, we are in CSL and can benefit of priority no 4.

CONS
1. Point Test will be changing on 12th March 2010, so this is one of the hurdle if we don't qualify.

I suggest waiting till new point test and then applying for ACS would eliminite few risks.

Keep posing, as such doubts may lead us to more understanding of such abrupt changes. :)

Welcome Sunil,faheem,Kishore,

The botomline is if u have been assessed for MODL+CSL by ACS, apply to DIAC ASAP, ther is no harm if u have 120 points for independant visa.

And for those (like me) who are yet to apply to ACS for some reason or another, we have to be little more cautious abt the new POINT TEST which DIAC will release after 12th March (exactly 1 month ahead from today).

This may be aggod point if they bring the point requirement from 120 to 115 who knows; something good might also happen. :)

What score ur reaching?
It all now depends upon score........
U will get CSL so priority 4 but most of the ppl affected due to the 8th Feb news is due to the elimination of MODL points.

Zahid,
New changes will not be imposed on the candidate by ACS/DIAC, if the candidate has filed his application before the changes are anounced.
Nothing to worry in ur case, just on getting +ve assessment from ACS apply ASAP to DIAC, on doing so ur application will be processed before the CSL is banished. U will still enjoy priority processing. :)

All the best.

Oh what a relief...thanks Gurav. Can you provide a reference of the web where you have read this about applicants who applied before new changes notification? just want to go through for my understanding and can help other people in my friends and family circle like you did to me :)

hey gaurav..

all this time i was thinking that IT people can claim only MODL..but I have seen many stating 'MODL+CSL'. So that means a person with .Net can still go for CSL before mid 2010? So basically MODL for IT is for claiming points only?

please suggest..

U have catched the correct strings, in CSL list there is only 1 SOL for IT (ie Computing Professionals(having specialisation)).
For us MODL+CSL is noting but CSL only.
now MODL will not give u points but only priority in processing; provided u have met the minimum passing mark (120 for independant subclass of PR visa).

so since after the 8th feb change.. apart from the points, is it possible for us to apply for ACS and get the assessment for CSL?

do you mean we shud submit the application to DIAC before mid 2010? or we shud get the CO allotted before mid 2010?

Also, when we submit application to ACS, what ASCO code should we give? is it the same '2231-79'?
