Received positive ACS Assessment today for 261313 (Software Engineer). Had a band score of 7 and above in IELTS, which was done in January 2015.

- Do you think applying for EOI is good now, since I have all the required prerequisites now?
- What are the chances that I will be getting in invite this year, since I have a score of 65 points?







IELTS (L: 8.5, R: 7.0, W: 8.5, S: 8.0) Jan 2015, ACS +ve 261313 14/05/15

Hey sukhvinder,
We are on the same boat. Invitations for VISA are on First come First serve basis if your score is low.
As your score is good you have the chance of being invited in July itself. but if there are more 65 and 70 pointers who submitted the EOI before you they will be invited first.
So my suggestion is lodge an EOI asap as there is no harm and no monetory thing involved by applying EOI at this stage.

Thanks for the reply Sukesh123/ Chris

One Query during submitting of EOI, I have 2 companies where I have worked, the first one is
First
10/2002 - 05/2006
Second
06/2006 - To Date

ACS has considered my experience relevant to 261313 after Nov 2006.

So while filling the EOI, when I add my First work ex, I need to select "No" for whether my work is related to Nominated occupation
and "Yes" for Second work exp.

Also Since after Nov 2006 has been recognized as relevant work experience, do I have to select my actual employment start date for second work exp, or do I select 01 Dec 2006 while filling in the details in EOI

You need to select only the expereicne marked relevant by ACS.
in your case as ACS considered after nov 2006 so your EOI shud look something like this....
First
10/2002 - 05/2006 Not relevant
Second
06/2006 -11/2006 Not relevant
Second
12/2006 Leave this end date blank if you are still working in same company and mark as relevant.

remember to mark the relavnt expereicne from after nov 2006. so ideal date shud be 1-dec-2006
