Hi,



what is the minimum PTE score which Spouse has to score in each module as secondary?

Hi,

A Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic test result of an overall band score of at least 30 based on the four test components of speaking, reading, writing and listening. Your test must have been completed within 12 months of visa application lodgement or can be completed during visa application processing.

She can also qualify for functional English if she has studied in an English medium school or college
And not have to give Pte at all
You can check the further details in the DIBP website

Cheers

i am going to claim 5 points as she falls in SOL list.
To claim points your partner needs to have competent English score
I.e. Minimum 50 in all 4 modules ( Not overall)

Cheers

as per the new rule effective from 1st July 2017, a spouse does not need English score if he/she can provide a college certificate stating that entire course was taught in the English language duly signed and stamped and backed up by a marks sheet in the English language.

If possible please post the link to the above statement.
If someone is claiming partner skills, Spouse should also score in english test, I believe

The thread is about proving basic functional English for spouse

What you are quoting is for claiming partner points

I dont have any document to back it up as my agent filed the EOI for me, my wife and my daughter. English test score was not required as i submitted the college certificate as suggested by my agent and it was accepted. waiting for my visa to arrive in few weeks. i will seek info from my agent.

I understand the reference that you don't need to write exam to show functional engish for your spouse... i was just wondering that you have mentioned the date "as of July 1st, 2017" whereas this statement has been there in their website even long before that...
thats all :)

Anamica,

Tell me if I understood this correctly. For me to claim partner points, I have to get her skills assessed and have her to write PTE, right?
