Hi All

I have read many posts and already learnt lot on the subject. I have applied ACS skill assesment and hoping for a MODL/CSL nomination by Feb 2010.

I have a question on DIAC application, regarding the points be allocated. Wanting to know your comments. Appreciate the help in advance !

I can score following points if I get CSL/MODL assesement from ACS & good IELTS.

Occupation (60)
Work Experience (10)
Demand List - Java (15)
English Language (15) -- Assuming i only get 6.5 each

To score 120 minimum, I need another 20.
My Birth is on June-1975. So I will be excatly 35 by June-2010.

DIAC says
30-34 Years ... 25 Points
35-39 Years ... 20 Points

If I apply by March-2010,(At that time I am 34+) will I be able to score 25 for Age ? Or Only 20 ?

Is the Age calculated based on the application lodging date ? Or Processing date of the application ?
If its based on the processing date, Am I going risky here, considering the fact current processing delays for General Skill Migration.
But I assume I will be categorized as CSL 175 visa.


Thx

The age is based on the application lodgement date (when DIAC receives the application and assigns you a number).

That's correct. The age is based on the application lodgement date and for online applications the lodgement date is when you make payment and receive your TRN.

for more points you can try getting state sponsorship if your skill is on the state demand list.
