Default EOI online is Showing 125 points But Actually Mine are 150 points

i have six years of Telecommunication experience. My age is 27 years. My degree is Master of computer science that is equivalent to level 7 of new zealand qualification.

When i fill the EOI it is showing me 125 points while according to table my occupation is in both identified future growth and area of absolute skill shortage and my points are straight 150 points.

Kindly guide me in this regard........

How is your points total made up? This might give us a clue as to where the discrepancy lies.

One immediate point that springs out is that you cannot gain points for work experience or a qualification in a future growth area unless you have a job or job offer in NZ.
I suspect this may explain the difference.

You can gain bonus points for work experience and a qualification in an area of absolute skills shortage without a job offer in place.

yes u are right. problem solved. i was counting the area of future growth on my work experience and on qualification. after removing that its 125 points.

Thanks for your help.


Can u tell me that 125 points is gud score for EOI to be selected or not?

This is the history of selection points for this year:
http://formshelp.immigration.govt.nz...ts/eoi2013.htm

It looks unlikely that a score of 125 without a job offer will be selected
There has been one draw where those with 15 points for work experience in an area of absolute shortage have been selected.

i just reviewed respective EOI selections and there is one column named

"Number of selected EOIs with 15 bonus points for work experience in an area of absolute skill shortage"

i am also claiming 15 bonus points for work experience in an area of absolute skill shortage from my total 125 points. still there are small chances for selection for EOI??

kindly advice ........

I would say NO. the ones that were picked with 15 bonus points had points of 135 or over
