Hi All,

My ACS got completed and am planning for my PTE Exam on July.

I am crossing 33 years in October 2017. If I am filing the EOI on August 2017 will I be getting 15 points(since I am under 33).. even after filing the EOI on August, will I be loosing the 5 points the moment October is crossed. Is my understanding correct?


Regards
Amal Thomas

I think the answer you're looking for is on this forum but I'm unable to paste a link, google "age calculation for EOI" it was the top result for me..

From what I read, its taken from the age when you submit your EOI, if your birthday is after that, its ok, but have a read up.

Irrespective of when you filed the EOI, the computer will deduct 5 points on the day you turn 33 and your seniority also will be reset

Thanks newbienz.
If I want to apply for state sponsorship what is the process?
Also how easy to get selected with 70 Points Any clue?
I saw you passed the PTE with 20 points in the first attempt. For 20 points do we need 79 above for all categories? or overall 79? Also can you give some pointers on how you prepared for the exam?

You just have to mark the column in EOI where they ask you if you want to apply for state sponsorship
If you choose YES, then it will ask you to select any particular states or you can choose all.
Some states accept direct application for nominations also.
A member has given the links in one of the threads. You can search that and apply directly also, if you wish


Invite with 70 points depends on your ANZSCO code . Whats your ANZSCO Code ?

I took the E2 language Paid package and prepared with that along with the PTE paid books.
No other specific tip I can offer.
Moreover I took the exam in NZ where i presume the facilities were better and the centre was comparatively quiet

Cheers

First round should be on 5th July
You are more or less guaranteed to get an invite on that day

Cheers
