Default Alternative English Tests

The DIBP have announced how the scores for the new English tests (due to be accepted sometime in November, date still to be announced) will be benchmarked against IELTS.

I have provided a comparison of the scores in a table on my website along with a list of visas for which these tests can be used (NB does not yet include SC457).

There are other English tests that you can take instead of IELTS, but you need to prove that you have competent English. The link in TeeTMI's post will show you the scores required if you take TOEFL iBT (Test of English as a Foreign Language Internet Based Test) or PTE Academic (Pearsons Test of English Academic). NAATI provide a test for people wishing to claim points for an additional language and not for English.

If you check the FAQ in the link, scores for TOEFL IBT equal to competent are Listening - 12; Reading - 13; Writing - 21 and Speaking - 18.

For Proficient (10 points) these scores would need to be 24, 24, 27 and 23; and 28, 29, 30, 26 for Superior (20 points)

The date that the new tests has been announced

That's a bit confusing to follow - are you asking if Engineers Australia will accept a TOEFL ibt score instead of IELTS?

You're very lucky that Sparkles responded to that! You need to include the word 'please' when you're asking people to do something for you, i.e. "could you please give me....." or "I would appreciate it if you could give me...."

The way you have written it, it sounds like a very rude demand

I don't think we have any Sirs on the forum but I could be mistaken.

I looked at the EA website and they only seem to recognise IELTS at the moment - if I remember correctly, you need BAND 6.

Mr Patel, it seems your english is letting you down even asking for help on here. I would recommend taking a short english course before paying to take the Immigration english test as it is not something someone should do 'off the cuff' if it is not that person's first language.

Kind regards

Adam guy is correct. You are not ready for any English test, take some classes first and learn the language. You will not be able to function when you get here otherwise, it will be a good investment for your future in Australia.
