Thanks. My occupation is not available for the 190 visa. So that I cannot try other states. Also, it's not in the pro rata occupation group, so in theory 60 points should be enough. The point is that I don't have an estimated time to get the invite.
I could predict you may receive an ITA on the round of 20 Sept or the next two rounds. This is based on the statistic facts BIDP provided on the previous years and the recent months.
Firstly, Look at the scores last year, it would drop to 60 points even earlier than this year (1st round of Sept already dropped to 60 but this was due to high number of ITAs and less number of high scores talents than this year )
Secondly, materials engineer occupation was not fully filled in the previous years and less competitive than other occupations. Most of ITAs in myimmitracker were 60-65 points.
Thirdly, BIDP had mostly cleared all those with 65 points on 6th Sept (exactly for those with EOI on 3 Aug 18) so it is most likely the score will be dropped to 60 this 20th September round. In the mean time, we need to count in those new applications with 65 points and higher since 4th Aug.
Lastly but more importantly, whose with 60 points but submitted EOI early would got ITA first. With the current statistics which BIDP already gave out 63 ITA and maximum number of ITAs for this round is 1750, we can expect to have maximum 50 ITA for Materials Engineer.
If you could track how many applications with 60 points have submitted so far, you could give yourself a shot.
