Hi All,

i have a question which might be helpful for other members as well to clarify the point system.

the question is, are there any other points from the criteria listed below, applying before new SOL? because when most of us will apply on 175 it will end up with 115 points (please note that this was extracted from immi's website:

Nominated occupation = (60 Points) For highly skilled occupations where training and/or
qualifications specific to the nominated occupation are
required.

Age = (30 points) 18—29 years old
English language ability = (15 Points) Competent English (IELTS 6.0)
Specific employment = 10 Points60 point occupation and three years work experience in the last four years in a closely related occupation.

60+30+15+10 = 115

so, again, the question is if there is any other criteria we are not considering. the detailed description can be accessed from immi's site:

Hi All,

English language ability = (15 Points) Competent English (IELTS 6.0)
English language ability = (25 Points) (IELTS 7.0)

60+30+25+10 = 125

so, again, the question is if there is any other criteria we are not considering. the detailed description can be accessed from immi's site:

French German Greek Hebrew* Hindi Hungarian

you may get 5 additional points by submitting:

or
be accredited with the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) at the professional level (translator/interpreter level).

hi pankajnamdeo,

see above response from immi. you need to submit a letter from your university mentioning that your studies were done from one of the languages mentioned above.

Point against URDU Language without Uni certificate Possible?

Hi Gaurav,

I am from Karachi Pakistan. I have done Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and my case looks exactly like yours i.e 115 points. Urdu is my mother language and I have studied Urdu for 12 years (during my schooling and College days only). Though the medium of instruction at University remained English all the time, do you think I can still claim this 5 points against community langauge?

Can any other expert in addition to Gaurav advise me on this? As a Pakistani who else can claim proficiency in Urdu than me? Is it like we have to have a uni certificate as a proof document against this 5 points or can it be shown via Educational certificates of School and College where URDU has been mentioned as a subject?

Really looking forward to get help from this platform.


Regards and thanks in advance.

Daaim.

Daaim,

you need to get letter (on university's letterhead) from your university which mentions that the medium of your studies was URDU. According to immi's rule letter & degree would be enough but i suggest you should also attach the transcripts with the letter.

may i suggest you to go for IELTS again or get SS if you are short in points, cause i've never seen claiming successful 5 points for NAATI. Also, as per new changes draft prepared by SKILLAUSTRALIA is a big question, whether 5 points for NAATI should be there. So no one knows if these points exist after july10 changes.

best of luck.

Hi,
I'm also 5 points short.

wickp, if you could claim the 5 points for native language, go ahead. else, you could get 10 points if you try for IELTS again (max points is 25)

I'm 5 points short but there's no way for me to claim any more points at present time.
Occupation = 60 points
Age = 30 points
IELTS = 25 points
Total = 115
Unfortunately for me, i had a gap of work experience that was in another occupation in the past 4 years...so I couldn't claim points for specific work experience. I wondered if I could claim points for specific work experience because both occupation (2 years each so far) are in the SOL list but my question was answered when I rang DIAC - no can do.
Oh well!

I'm hoping that the new announcement would be good news for me, too.

You can claim points of specific work exp even when your exp is related to another SOL.
Eg: for 2 yrs of exp on .net + 2 yrs of exp of java (recent)....... u can claim the points bcos both of the occupations are of Computing professionals only.
Better confirm from DIAC in more convincing way... may b u will get some favourable reply.
