Exclamation Applying 885 Visa with 1 year work Exp

Hello friends,

I graduated at the end of 2009. Applied for 485 Visa in Jan 2010 before new rule came into effect, which was from 10th Feb 2010.
My 485 visa file is under screening and hopefully it should be approved by end of July 2011. I am looking forward to apply for 885 as soon as I get 485 approved on the basis of work experience.
I have 1 year, 3 months and ongoing experience as IT Technical Consultant from one of Employer Choice Global Company.
I graduated with Masters in IT and still come under old 120 points criteria until 2012.
Now, I would please like to know would my above job profile be considered as valid experience job with ACS recognized as IT RECENT GRAD -NEC category ?
OR should I wait and give Ielts a try to achieve 7 bands in every module and then apply for 885 visa.
I am very confused as I have no one who have applied for 885 from 485 by showing related work experience. Every friend of mine have studied 1 year Professional Program or achieved 7 bands overall.
There are 3 scenario I could think of at this stage :
1 > Apply for Permanent Residence 885 with current experience.
2 > Try getting 7 bands overall and apply for 885 including work experience.
3 > Start with Professional Year right away, gain 10 points and then apply.
Every input on this issue would help my deeply. Thank you for your time well in advance. Looking forward for your response.

Thank you.

Old point system

Hi,
Just from my knowledge,
You need to be on a 485 on 10th Feb 2010 to be eligible to claim points from the old SOL. If you could claim.
1) You can apply to ACS for any occupation you choose without experince provided your course has enough subject meeting the requirement of the chosen occupation.
2) ACS require minimum 2 years of experience to match your skill.
3) If you are sure that you can stil apply with old SOL, then provided
a) ACS Skill assessment
b) Employer reference letter (matching the skill in the SOL)
c) Ielts 6.0 in each band
Will get you 120 points (again make sure that you are eligible to apply with the old point system)

Thank you Vijay for your prompt response

Yes, I had applied for TR 485 before Feb 10th. I still come under old SOL.
RIght now I have got 1.5 yr experience.
When re accessing, I would still use the old SOL as it is valid until Dec 2012.
Should I now wait for another half year to get complete 2 year exp and then apply for PR or can I straight away apply now.

Thanks.

If you are eligible to apply under old point system, you can claim points for your experience. All you need is positive assessment and employer reference letter (matching or closely related to your assessment skill in SOL).
