Default should i apply anyway?

Hi guys i am wondering whether to start the ball rolling on my application or not, the reason being 99% of my time i don't do much other than replacing sockets/pendants, checking smoke alarms work the odd fault finding in domestic properties etc etc .
i think i would need to revise too much to pass the test what do you think will it be worth the time and money involved?

thanks kenny

Welcome to BE kenny,

only you can answer this question!

There are plenty of posts on this forum discussing everything, from the vetassess application to buying your first house in oz.

Have a browse through and let us know what you decide in the future.

Look at the department of immigration website to see if you qualify first anf then have a butchers at the vetasses website.

good luck

doc

Thanks guys there are so many helpfull people on here , i have read a lot of posts on here and been to the immigration website i am pretty sure i qualify points wise etc it is just the exam part that is a worry to me,it is alot of money to lose if nerves get to me and i mess something up.

well as they say nothing ventured nothing gained so i will start trying to revise stuff (16 years since i did motors + resistor stuff at college) and take it from there.
