Hi guys,
I am very much curious to know something from our senior expats who are based in Aus currently.

I am in a midst of my visa process n preparing to attempt IELTS for the 2nd time.My ANZSCO code given by ACS is System Analyst.
As I am very much interested to migrate Perth, I did some initial research and discovered that the System Analyst code has been removed from WA SOL.
Now is it possible if I do re-assessment and change the ANZSCO code to Business Analyst and then straight away apply for WA SS ? (My first IELTS score is 6+ in all bands )

If Yes, will there be any issues while hunting jobs out there ? Need to know if employers check ACS assessment or not?

Also highlight the pros n cons if it's possible to do it this way.

Understand that WA SS is the fastest of all states n time is running out as July is coming closer n closer.thus need to take decision asap.

Thanks in Advance

It is up to you if you want to get re-assessed. Many people have done it before. As long as you pay ACS the fee, you can get all the reassessments you'd like. (Doesn't mean you will pass them), but no one can stop you from getting reassessed.

I doubt employers check ACS assessments. But I often read of some partners and spouses of migrating individuals who intend to look for work so they volunteer to get assessed just to prove that their skills are comparable.
