Cool Ielts

Hi,
I would like to apply for the sponsored visa as my wife is British and all her siblings are Australian citizens. I am a bit struggling with the threshold requirement "the language requirement".

I received my Ph.D. from the UK in 2005. All my University courses (B.Sc. and M.Sc. were in English). I am also the editor of 2 scientific books and many international articles. Do I still need to take the IELTS?

If yes, then I only need to score 6 in all sections to be eligible for this visa. Although I got 7.0 on overall, I got one section below 6 as follow:
7.5 listening
7.5 speaking
6.5 writing
5.5 reading
I resit the exam and I got 6.5 in reading this time, but unfortunately, I got less than 6 in another section! Can I send the DIAC both test results and they will consider me passed (will they combine both tests) or I MUST resit the exam and got 6 minimum in all sections in one go? I am afraid it sounds like a business wise matter to me.

Thank you

Hi Goldenguy,

At 1st, I'm a bit confused, have to re-read over again and still not sure what visa you are going to apply. If skilled migration visa, you must have 6.0 (all 4 components) in order to lodge application and this is basic requirement so points won't be gained. But if you are talking about partner visa, Ielts is not required. Anyway, what passport are you holding? no Ielts needed for Uk, Canada, NZ, USA and Ireland.

Cheers

I see you changed your sentence to make it clearer "as my wife is British and all her siblings are Australian citizens", I see - but when you say sponsored visa, do you mean skilled migration sponsored or partner visa sponsored?

Is your wife a permanent resident of Australia? If she is she can be your sponsor for a partner visa.

Ielts

Sorry guys for the confusion and many thanks for your reply.
Actually, I am holding an Egyptian passport and my wife is British. I would like to apply for the skilled migration visa and I will be sponsored by my wife's parents as they are Australian citizens.
I need to get 6 minimum in all sections. Unfortunately, I sit the exam twice and each time I scored in one section less than 6 although my overall score was 7 !!!
Do you think I can send the DIAC the results of the two exams I had and they can combine them. In this case I should pass or it is a MUST to get 6 minimum in each section in the same exam.

Another question, I received my Ph.D. and all my undergraduate and postgraduate studies were in English. Could that replace the IELTS?
Thanks

Hi goldenguy,

As I know, they will not combine your 2 Ielts results, you suppose to provide 1 result only. And your qualifications also can't replace ielts. I'm sorry about that but I think you need to sit for ielts again.

Cheers
