You are good to go. They need 4.5 overall, not each.

I hope you are aware that there are several easy ways to prove functional English even without a test

Also functional English score are valid for only 1 year and not 3

Hi all,
I have got in contact with the immigration department and they said that my partner must get at least 4.5 in each component and the immigration website says “An average band score of at least 4.5 for each of the 4 test components“.

Can you guys please confirm if she need to get in each or just the overall would be enough?

Thanks

You have to get an average
So as long as the sum of all the 4 scores is minimum 18, you are good

Hi NB thanks for your reply.

Yeah my partner got s 5.5, w 5, r 4, l 4 which the overall is 4.5. So, she is good to go.
But they said that it needs to be in each. I think the rules for Functional English has changed.

Not yet. But I got some assistance from an agent and she explained me that should be fine with the overall.

Yes, someone told me not to refer to the information on DOHA website but i still worried about this. Just want to get a DG asap.
Yeah! I contacted the DHA and they have no idea what is the functional english and the website is not very clear, as mentioned before, functional is the only one which mentions “average”... I am still waiting for the answer from the CO, but i am quite confident that they will accept the overall.
