IF you have AT-LEAST 6 in each of the four test components THEN you would meet one of the eligibility criteria BUT won't be able to score any Points for English language ability.


For further details refer to following web-link:


Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189)

The question is too vague. Here are a few scenarios:

  1. You are 50 years old. In that case, you can't get a 189 or 190 visa.
  2. You are 33-39 years old; ACS cuts your years of experience by two years or more and you have less than bachelor's degree -- that's 25 + 10 + 10 = 45 points -- very short of required 60 (or even 55 for 190 visa)
  3. You are 33-39 years old; you get 8 years of experience recognized by ACS and you have a bachelor's degree -- that's 25 + 15 + 15 = 55 points, good enough for 190 visa

Please share more details about you. 6.5 IELTS and 10+ years of experience (of which only the last 10 count and ACS frequently cuts that by 2) are neither necessary nor sufficient for getting a 189 or 190 visa.

Was your Post Graduation a Full Time Degree or a Part Time/Correspondence?

What about your Bachelors Degree ?


Calculate your approximate Points using attached sheet.

AGE - 25
English Language Ability - 0
Qualification attained - 10/15 (AFTER ACS skills assessment you would know the exact details)
State/Territory Nomination - 5
Skilled experience in a Nominated Occupation - 10/15 (based on ACS assessment)
