I am on my student visa (500) and will be applying for my 485 Visa after i obtain my IELTS results.
My Student visa expires on the 20 Feb, My ielts test is on the 15 feb.
The issue I have is that , as i understand it the English is at the time of lodgement requirement.
I dont think the IELTS results will be issued before the 20 Feb (But the Assessment will technically be done already). Will this be an issue? There is a PTE test on the 18 Feb that I can sit but would it be necessary to burn my IELTS fees?
Hope someone has the answer to this.
