What does "time of decision" really mean when submit IELTS

I heard different versions about the definition of "time of decision" to submit IELTS results.

1. Time of decision: when you are allocated a case officer and your application is started to be processed

2. Time of decision: initial assessment on your application, and see whether your application is valid or not.

3. Time of decision: DIAC regards 28 days after date of application as time of decision, and there is an initial assessment on your application.

Which one above is correct ?

Provision time of IELTS (four 7 target) different versions:

1. You can provide IELTS with all 7 whenever you can before "Time of decision", if definition 1 is correct.

2. You have to provide IELTS with all 6 as a prerequisite within 28 days after application, and provide IELTS with all 7 later before "Time of decision", if definition 1 is correct.

3. You have to provide IELTS with all 7 within 28 days after application if definition 3 is correct.

4. Try the best to get 7 within 28 days, if cannot then provide before "time of decision". If application was rejected, then MRT or sth.

Please is there anyone can provide 100% confirmation on which interpretation of DIAC policy is correct based on your own experience or case?

Thank you very much.

It would seem that the statement re providing IELTS within 28 days of application if it is not provided with the application is very clear.
See What's New? Recent Changes in General Skilled Migration for

Applicants will have 28 days from the date of application to provide their English language results if they did not provide them at time of application. At this point in time, if evidence has not been provided the application will be refused.
Most people do it prior to submitting an application.
As for appealing, you may waste a lot of $$$ for the abover variation came about because of a MRT case and I doubt the MRT will consider too favourably any extension.
Applicants need to adopt some personal responsibility.

But they also wrote :

There are new arrangements for the provision of evidence for English language ability. Applicants for the following GSM subclasses have until the time of decision to provide evidence of their English language ability.

I called DIAC, and they really don't have definition for "time of decision", and neither did they say regarding 28 days as "time of decision".

What if "time of decision" was at the time of being allocated a case officer ?

If you want to play fiddle sticks with

•Skilled – Independent (Residence) visa (subclass 885)
•Skilled – Sponsored (Residence) visa (subclass 886)
•Skilled – Independent (Migrant) visa (subclass 175)
•Skilled – Sponsored (Migrant) visa (subclass 176)

•Skilled – Provisional (Recognised Graduate) visa (subclass 476)
•Skilled – Provisional (Graduate) visa (subclass 485)
•Skilled – Provisional (Regional Sponsored) visa (subclass 487).
Applicants should not delay in providing their evidence of English language ability. The department will not delay finalising applications where English language test results have not been provided at time of application. Applicants will have 28 days from the date of application to provide their English language results if they did not provide them at time of application. At this point in time, if evidence has not been provided the application will be refused.
Your call but people do get their fingers burnt and if you read a whole article where one sentence flows on to more detail, I'm always with more detail.
Better still, be smarter still and put it in with an application.
