The answer is the same.... If you're applying for the 186 through the Temporary Residence Transition stream, then 5 in each band is required (Vocational English), but if you're applying through the Direct Entry Stream then you need 6 in each band (Competent English).

My written english is fine, I just suck at writing essays (even in my native language) so I never managed to get higher than a 7.5.
Anyway, I did the PTE test and I scored the maximum score on all 4 subjects(=band 9 in IELTS) Consequently, I updated my EOI and got an invitation in the next invitation round.
Another advantage of PTE is that you dont have to wait 2 days on your results. For PTE its a maximum of 5 working days but I actually had my results a little over 12 hours (!!) after doing the test.

Hi mate!

The information you provided proved to be incredibly helpful. I read about the advice of doing the PTE test instead a while ago, but when I checked with CPA Australia office here in London, they told me that they only accepted IELTS. Now after reading your response, I contacted CPA Australia in Sydney, and they confirmed that I could do PTE. Thank you very much for your help.

Could you in-debt me a bit more by giving me advice on the preparation material you used? I would like to get it done soon and hopefully get it right the first time round.

Cheers mate!

You can "purchase" a mock test on the official PTE website. With this mock test come a set of test boosters. These are pretty handy to get used to how questions are asked and what to expect.
