I am worried about the same. I think the cut off for 60 points must have been in end february. I submitted my EOI with 60 points in May as well. I think most of the places will be taken by 65 and above points... any comments?

:( the same, i know people who applied before 20 april on 60 points did not get any invitation so far. If it is going to be on a pro rata basis then our chances (60 points) of getting an invitation are very little but if it not to be pro rata for few months then we have a hope....:fingerscrossed:

Lets hope we get an invitation next month or soon, did you apply 190 as well alongwith 189, or it is advisable i think for 190 we will be at 65 i.e 60+5 for NSW. ?

No i could not apply for 190 because i was not eligible for it. that is the only reason i am freaking out :eek: because 189 is the only hope for me..:fingerscrossed::fingerscrossed: :confused2: Let me know once you get an invitation for 189 :)

And yes 190 will be at 65. :) and 489 at 70 i think.

Hi guys, I have submitted my EOI on the 24/03/2015 with 60 points (missed last financial year´s cut-off by 22 hours) 221111 Accountant General.

My question is, keeping in mind the current trend do you think I have any chance of being invited till Dec 2015 (visa expires), or should I go for PTE again and try to get additional points? Thanks.


Visa SC: 189 PTE: 74/80/82/85 EOI Submitted 60 Points - 24/03/2015 ANZSCO: 221111 Accountant general

Well Because you have applied in march which is very close to the cut off 60 points invitations. This time they only invited 65 points applicants may be next round you might be picked up. Chances are very high, but yes why not try for higher score. I have not appeared for Pte. how did u find it different from ielts? when it comes to difficulty and scoring? Let me know anour your view. My scores in ielts is S= 7.5 W=7, R=8.5, L= 8.5. Cheers. Thanks

Thanks for the reply. In my case I would definitely say that PTE is easier, only if you feel comfortable speaking to a microphone rather than a real person and if you are computer savvy. If that is the case just give it a go. You will be surprised with the results.

the cutoff for 60 points was on 23rd of March since the last round that invited 60 pointers,
obviously no invitation were send to people with 60 point since then.

with 2525 only invitation this year I think we have a very slim chance to get invited as many the number will be taken by 65+ pointers!!!

specially that many people will be trying to rush their applications now and/or will tr to improve their score because they are not sure accountants will be on the SOL next year

I hope I am wrong

I believe you have a very good chance getting invited next round, things will be more clear when DIBP purplish the results of 6th of July round on their website in few days!

good luck

oh mate, that was very unlucky for you!!!
the good news that you will first to be invited after 65 pointers, you might need to wait for a round or 2 until they clear backlog of 65+ pointers (hopefully not many of them will apply)

I've read at some blog that 65 pointers before 30 May have received an invitation. Well, if there are not many 70+ pointers before the next round you are likely to receive an invitation. Good Luck.

Hi mate,
I submitted 189 on 29th June with 65 points? Is there any chance to receive invitation before October? I will lose 5 points after Oct. if I am not invited after Oct, I Need to update my EOI so my waiting queue will be counted after the update?
Some agent said around 300 Members with 65+ submitted in June. I have some concerns now, as only 200 members will be invited each round and 80 of them are 70+ new members.
