I think there is answer in one of the thread in this forum. Anway check the article below and I hope it helps.



Points Calculator

So, grab yourself a low tech pen and an even lower tech scrap of paper and work out how many points you might get right now.

Age

First, you get points for your age:

The basic requirement is that you are under the age of 50, but if you are…

Age 45 – 49 you can apply but you get 0 points for your age.
Age 40 – 44 = 15 points
Age 33 – 39 = 25 points
Age 25 – 32 = 30 points
Age 18 – 24 = 25 points
Update: Some people are unsure about how many points they get for their age, it’s very simple. Example; somebody who is 39 years and 11 months old still falls into the 33 – 39 years category. Only when they turn 40 do they go into the 40 to 44 category.

Command of the English language:

Superior = 20 points
Proficient = 10 points
Competent = 0 points
Your English language skills are assessed using the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test. There are four parts to this test, speaking, reading, listening and writing. To be superior, you will need to score a minimum of 8 for each. To be proficient, you need to score at least 7 for each part and to be competent you need to score 6 as a minimum for each of the four.

If you hold a passport from the UK, the USA, Ireland, Canada or New Zealand, you automatically qualify as competent, but that still gives you zero points. If you need more points, you will need to sit the test. For other passport holders, even though competent doesn’t score you any points, you still need to take the test toprove your competency to continue.

Please be aware that there are two types of IELTS test; the General test and the Academic test. The general IELTS is the standard English test, and the Academic is required by certain academic or medical/specialist occupations. The test that you take largely depends on what is required by the kind of work that you do and/or the requirement of potential sponsors.

Your skill

To apply for a Skilled Independent visa you do not require sponsorship, but your occupation must be on the Skilled Occupations List (SOL).

To apply for a Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa your skill also has to be on the SOL mentioned above and you need to be sponsored by an Australian relative who lives in a designated area, or your job needs to be on the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL) AND the respective state and territory shortage lists and you need to be nominated by a state or territory government. In either of these two situations you will score an extra 10 points (regional earns higher points).

You may also want to keep an eye on this page which contains information about Recent Changes.

To apply for a Skilled Nominated visa you will need nomination by a state or territory government and your skill must be on CSOL AND the above-mentioned State/Territory Nominated Skilled list. This will score you an additional 5 points.

Often State and territory lists have special requirements including higher English , minimum work experience, job offers etc which you must meet before they will nominate.

Work experience in your nominated skill:

You can get extra points depending upon how much time you have spent being employed in your nominated skill. How many years experience do you have out of the last 10 years in your nominated occupation? This can sometimes include work in a closely related occupation.

If your work experience is from overseas…

Three years = 5 points
Five years = 10 points
Eight years = 15 points
But you will get more points for work experience gained in Australia in your nominated occupation…

One year = 5 points
Three years = 10 points
Five years = 15 points
Eight years = 20 points
Qualifications

Doctorate degree = 20 points
Bachelor degree = 15 points
Australian Diploma or trade qualification = 10 points
A successful authorised skills assessment in a recognised qualification = 10 points
Extra points

There are several ways to earn extra points:

Studying a course in Australia that meets certain requirements = 5 points
By meeting the Australian Study Requirement (above) while studying in a regional area = 5 points
NAATI accreditation = 5 points
By completing a Professional Year course specified by the Minister = 5 points
If your partner meets the basic requirements for a skilled migration visa = 5 points
Partners:

Having spoken to my MARA agent, I can now clear up the following.

A partner can assist with 5 points if they:

were under 50 years of age at the time of the application;
had at least competent English (prescribed passport holder or 6 in all 4 IELTS modules);
had nominated an occupation on the same skilled occupation list as the main applicant’s nominated occupation (can’t mix and match with SOL and CSOL);
have been assessed by the relevant assessing authority as having suitable skills for the nominated occupation (formal assessment).
How many points do you need?

The current qualifying point score to receive an invitation to lodge an application is 60.

If you have lodged an Expression of Interest ( EOI) in any of the points based skilled visas, then you will need a minimum 60 points to receive an invitation, but invitations are issued to the highest scoring EOIs so the qualification score may not guarantee success.

This is a statement I have had verified through official channels:

“The current qualifying point score is 60. If you are applying for a Skilled Independent visa, then you will need a minimum 60 points to do so, but invitations are issued to the highest score.

If you are applying for a Skilled Nominated visa, then you still need 60 points but you will be allocated the 5 ‘nomination‘ points by selecting that nominated visa sub-class so you will meet the minimum 60 points upon lodgement of the EOI.

When you apply for the state sponsorship (which must be approved by the state government or territory) you must include your EOI reference. When the state nomination is approved, the nomination points will be confirmed on the system and the invitation will be issued by DIBP automatically.

If you are applying for a Skilled Nominated visa or Skilled Regional visa, then you must ensure that the score you will achieve, once the nomination is approved (and the points confirmed) meets at least the qualifying score of 60 points. Beware of (usually) age changes which may decrease your points score after lodgement of your EOI as this will mean your score will not meet the qualifying score or you will not be able to support the age points when the application is assessed.

Getting the required number of points does not guarantee you an invitation as it depends upon availability of spaces within the selected ANZSCO occupation quota (ceiling) and also how competitive your score is. Invitations are issued to those with the highest score. Once an invitation has been issued, you will then have 60 days to lodge a visa application based upon your EOI submission (amended where required).”

You must score at least 60 points to be eligible for a skilled visa.

You aren't yet 33, so you are 32. There are no "in between" ages for DIBP.

When you fill your EOI the system will automatically calculate the points for you.
You just need to enter your date of birth. System will award points based on that.



truth,lol
