Guys please need your input for South Australia state nomination 190. My occupation ICT 262112 (Security Specialist) is currently as per the new July 1 2015 list in high nomination category. My IELTS score is 9,6.5,7.5,7 with an overall score of 7.5.
The issue is my agent is insisting that my IELTS score has to be 7 each, however as per new IELTS requirements it clearly says that they would accept applicants with proficient (7) each or overall proficient plus (7.5) score.

Kindly advise.

Your agent is correct. It has to be 7 in each of the four test components to claim points for your English Proficiency. You can show that you are competent in English since you received more than 6 in each section.

In short, based on your current scores that you have provided below - Your "6" points will demonstrate that you have at least competent English language ability, but no points will be awarded for English language ability.

Hope this helps.

Yes as per points requirement, I might fall short of 10 points hence 7 each seems logical. So basically overall scores are not accounted for any points while applying for DIBP, considering SA is accepting overall proficient plus scores?
