decision ready or not?

Is an application considered decision ready even if you have yet to attach the medical and police check? But have all other forms and evidence?

Decision ready means that you have submitted everything required to make a decision on your application, including medicals and police checks.

For what it's worth, I'm not sure how much an application being "decision ready" helps these days. It used to get you moved to the top of the pile, but with such a huge backlog, it doesn't seem to be making a difference anymore in many places. I would not hold off on applying just in the name of making sure you're decision ready when you apply. Far better to go ahead and get yourself into the queue. Just my opinion, though.

Original Nationality: US
Visa #1: PMV (300) through Washington, D.C
Applied: April 2013.
Visa Granted: January 2014.
Visa #2: Subclass 820 (From PMV).

Visa Granted: Early July 2014.
Visa #3: 801 (PR)
Eligibility Date: End of April 2016 (Applied a month prior).
PR Granted: Early April 2017.

Totally agree with CG on this one -- DIAC put out a statement last November that they weren't guaranteeing priority to decision-ready applications anymore. So, if everything else is ready - I wouldn't wait if I were you.

I am not a migration agent, just a fellow victim of the system.
