ICT Support Engineer Seeking PR - Chances?
I want to check my chances for getting Aus PR. Below are my details:
Occupation: ICT Support Engineer
Points: 70 (with proficient english) for 189 and + 5 for 190
OR at the most 80 (if i attempt PTE again) for 189 and + 5 for 190
I had applied earlier with 65+5 for 190 but the EOI expired already. the partner skill was not available then.
Planning to apply again but want to check if ICT Support Engineer is a good code. Will i have good chances if i try to get higher score in PTE?
Is it possible to get a PR if i have a job opportunity in Australia? I am an Indian national.
Welcome @lookingtomigrate 🙂 I'm not as familiar with PTE as I am with IELTS but I do know if you are able to get a score that gives you 'superior English' with IELTS you will gain an extra 20 points. If you can gain at least 79 for each of the 4 test components you will gain an extra 20 points. See this article for more information.
Given the recent skill select rounds, you need a minimum 95 points to qualify at the moment, this may reduce as we enter a new migration year on the 1st July, however the more points, the better.
