Hello!

I have been invited for 189 under Software Engineer occupation. I gave IELTS Academic about a year ago having secured 7 band in each module. Would that be sufficient? or do i need to retake IELTS with General module?

Regards

||| IELTS General Training for IMMIGRATION |||


IELTS Academic ins't accepted for IMMIGRATION.

Refer to following Excerpt from IMMI website.


********************************************************

English language ability:

You must be able to demonstrate that you have at least competent English language ability at the time you are invited to apply and when you lodge your application.

No points are awarded for competent English.

You can receive 10 points for proficient English and 20 points for superior English .

The IELTS has an academic test and a general training test. You need only take the general training test unless your assessing authority tells you otherwise. You only need to provide the test report form (TRF) number or the test registration number that is on your English language test certificate. Your English language test results must be no older than three years immediately before the day on which you were invited to apply for your visa application.

Academic IELTS is acceptable for 189/190 while it is not compulsory. Academic test is considered to be harder, so DIBP encourage candidates to sit the easier General option.

However, they will accept Academic IELTS.

This only means that they do not require you to sit the Academic version.

Incorrect Jeeten. They are only recommending IELTS General. But if you have done IELTS Academic they will accept that as well.

Thanks.
