hanu is an unknown quantity at this point
Default what if pasmark increases to 120

what if in the midst of the Visa application process, passmark increases to "120" or the points attached to skilled set
decreases from 60 to 50 or from 50 to 40 ,
does DIMA return the yet unassessed application with passmark = 115 which has been submitted two months earlier with reference to the amended passmark event ???

Hanu - you and we have no way of knowing what might happen in the future with either points allocations for particular occupations or pass marks for skilled migration.

Ultimately the Department of Immigration will do whatever it considers necessary and I really wouldn't be trying to second guess uncertain future events.

Best regards.

What I would say is that legally an increase in the pass mark - or a change to the
SOL - would apply to all applications in the system that haven't been assessed.

Same applies to any other changes that could be made, such as tightening up the
English language requirements.

It would be then up to the Department to decide whether to apply the legal rule or to
give a concession. They applied the law with the April 2002 change to the MODL, and
gave a concession with the May 2002 pass mark increase.

So as Alan says, trying to guess what they are going to do in future will be a
hopeless exercise.
