New SOL and Point system

Hi...

With the announcement of the New SOL is it expected that the point system will also change? I'm trying to decided whether or not to write the IELTS now or wait til July. I currently have 115 points and would have 125 with the test. It would also save me about $1000 as I have to travel a far distance to write the test.

If you're hoping they could reduce the acceptance ;level from 120 for independent immigration, I would think that will be most unlikely to happen and just as likely is that the points for particular occupations will stay much the same.
With state sponsorship, the acceptance level may still be 100 though the State Migration Plans set-up could diminish the number of occupations under sponsorship.

I think it was IT Manager you had mentioned earlier and have you checked the new SOL list Kim for my quick glance sees that only more specific IT occupations are listed, ie. analysts/programmers.

You may have to review under which occupation you can apply.
