IELTS score

Hi,

I received my IELTS score today. Overall is 7 but one of them (writing) is 6. Is this enough for applying GSM - Skilled Independent?

Just in case you're wondering, a score of 6 in all sections is the minimum you can have to get the Immi points of 15
Score of seven in all gets you 25 points.
You also need to have specific scores re some occupations.

Thank you, Wanderer. I calculated the points (if old scoring is still valid) and it came 115. I am sort of 5 points to make 120 to apply for GSM - Independent, I guess.

60 points for your nominated occupation
20 points for your age
15 points for English language ability
10 points for your work experience
5 points for spouse skills
5 points for language experience
115 total points

Now, I have few questions:
1) Is there any more points I could get from my spouse?
2) Is it compulsory for spouse to give IELTS exam?
3) What are the limitations with Skilled - Sponsored or Regional Sponsored over Independent?

As per the table you would seem to have checked
[ and also read the links to be clear on your eligibility for each lot of points ]
It is only 5 for a spouse and spouse needs to have SOL occupation qualifications assessed.
Your spouse having IELTS results can determine whether you'll be liable for the second installment of the VAC - Skilled – Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175)

The sponsored visas mean you have an obligation to live/work in the state/territory you are sponsored by and some states/territories may require you to have an employment offer.
The State Migration Plans [ a priority listing of occupations ] yet to be announced may have some impact on the sponsorships situation and points available so you should review your full situation when the new SOL [ and hopefully SMPs ] are published, expected to be July01.

Very clear, thank you.
Now one more question. While I was searching in internet, I saw http://www.capa.edu.au/files/points-test-discussion.pdf which has10 points for 2 separate items related to work experience:
1. Specific employment: 60 point occupation and 3 yrs closely related experience
2. Experience: 12 months of a specified Professional Year
Are these 2 different items with valid points? If they are, what is the difference? Thank you in advance.

That discussion paper was used as the basis for reviewing what changes may be made to the existing points allocation and as yet that is also unknown but I would expect it is not likely to change too significantly from what currently exists for it still needs to be a workable system whilst giving desired results of focusing on higher skilled areas.
Currently:
. there is a 12 months experience in past 24 immediately prior to application basic no points awarded requirement.
. if you have three years of experience, there are points for specific experience.
. giving points for a PDY is a new approach [ a bit surprising if made ]
