Question on 457 and applying for 857...i'm going nuts!

Hi there,

i have some questions regarding the 857 visa, or lets say I'm looking for advice to avoid some of the costs.

We arrived on a 457 visa 2 years ago, means we've done all the medicals, police checks etc then.
I'm somewhat fine with providing new police checks, especially the australian ones, but I sort of have a problem with spending more than 1000 dollar on medicals again AND 300 on an IELTS test.

My question: Is it really neccesary to provide medical exams (esp X rays!) when we haven't spend a day overseas in the last 2 years? Is there a chance to proof our good health otherwise?
And can you give me advise how to proof "functional english" without IELTS (I'm working in research at an australian uni by the way)

Thanks so much for your help.

Oh, I'm a bit desperate, because we only have a certain timeframe, otherwise we won't have the two years of employment you need to have for this type of visa.
