Victoria invitation with wrong EOI points

Hi everyone,
I have received the invite to lodge my visa 190 VIC with EOI with 85 points. Unfortunately while I was filling the invitation form I realised that I answered incorrectly at the question on the EOI where it asks about the Australian study requirements. I marked yes when the correct answer is "NO". Doing so my EOI points are currently 80 and not 85 as initially stated. Genuinely I misunderstood the question because I thought It was related to my skills assessment. I have phoned the Home Affairs but they didn't help me at all. I have also already created a new EOI with the correct points score. At this stage should I leave the old application lapsed and wait for the new invitation on the new EOI or carry on with the invitation received? 😞 Literally I feel desperate. Plus next month I am going to loose 5 points for age so I'm going to have 75 points. Will 75 be enough to be invited as a perioperative nurse in VIC? Plus can they pick my new OEI even if I have the other one locked by the inviatation? 😞

You are not he first person to make that mistake.

From what you have posted, I advise that by accepting the invitation you run the risk of a visa refusal for over claiming points. Immigration policy is that if an applicant would have been invited with the reduced points score then a visa application can proceed. Victoria have recently nominated nurses with 75 points, so what to do, is up to you.

Thank you for your answer. I have contacted Live in Melbourne and explained the situation. They said they need to reassess my application now. I really hope they invited other people with 80 hopefully I can lodge the invitation but I don't feel that confident 😞
