New Visa Points Test 2011


This question is with regard to the new points test which comes into effect in July, 2011. I am an international student who had applied for a subclass 485 visa in 2008. Due to some complications such as my migration agent conning all his clients, my visa ran into some problems with the immigration department due to non-submission of my IELTS test scores.

I applied for a review with the MRT and provided a copy of my test scores and they reached a decision in my favor as my scores were well above the benchmark ( overall 8.0, with individual scores ranging from 7.5, 8, 8, 9).

My question is; when the new rules come into effect, can I put in a fresh application under that scheme cause considering my proficiency in the language and my qualifications, I am able to score around 75 points (15 points more than the 60 point benchmark).

Any help in this matter will be appreciated.
