You have been misinformed.
You are not required to engage a representative.
If you engage a registered migration agent or a lawyer to represent you, the presiding AAT member does not have to let your representative speak on your behalf, although they usually do.
Your best strategy is to have your submissions thoroughly prepared - in writing - and lodged as soon as possible.

It is a bit more complicated than that. You actually have to convince them that you meet the requirements for the visa. Basically you should re-do the entire application with a detailed submission explaining why the refusal was wrong.

I suggest you get professional help quick or face another refusal. You should have sorted this out as soon as you lodged the review application.

It is necessary, but not sufficient to prepare a submission that rebuts the reason/s for refusal.From time to time presiding members find reasons to refuse and application on grounds that were not cited by the primary decision maker.

But i am now attending my uni as i was on a bridging student visa but my case was referred to aat and have completed my medicals. Im not finding any mrt with a price i can afford in the internet
