Hi A. Quadeer

EA does require that applicants arrange for the IELTS result to be sent directly to Engineers Australia from the test centre. Because IELTS will contact EA directly, you do not have to attach evidence to your application.

Best regards
Susan

Hi Susan,

Thanks for your reply.
I think that doing this would expedite my application process since I won't be waiting for the IELTS results.
I am presuming that they will process my application without IELTS results.
And as soon as they get it they will give me the outcome of assessment.

Am I right in presuming this ?

Hi Qadeer

As you'd be aware, EA requires all applicants who are required to sit an IELTS test to achieve a minimum score of 6.0 in each band.

Because of that EA needs to review an applicant's IELTS results before they start processing the application, in case the applicant doesn't achieve the required IELTS score.

Also, because of the large number of applications EA staff have to process, they are usually not able to start assessing applications as soon as they're received.

I've always found their quoted timeframes are a realistic guide to the processing time - even where applicants have submitted their IELTS results before their skills assessment applications are lodged.

Good luck with your application.

Best regards
Susan

Hi,

They usually send you the receipt by mail within 5-7 working days with a CID (Contact ID) no.
The assessment process takes around four weeks.

All the best !

Just to clarify, assuming the application is prepared properly and all the required supporting evidence is provided, accredited Australian and Accord qualifications currently take up to 3 weeks, but non-accredited qualifications take around 16 weeks from the date of receipt.

Susan

Why do accountants need @7 in each band in ielts? {http://www.cpaaustralia.com.au/cps/rde/xchg/cpa-site/hs.xsl/become-how-migration.html}

Now I see the assessment bodies will take ielts score with application.

Does it mean no jobs for accountants in australia?

( if you want to come please bring the crown....!?)

I doubt I have a good furure in AUS..... May be I made a big mistake!!

Hey Qaudeer,
Let me share a quick advise with you...

you should have mentioned the address of Engineers Australia on the "result forwarding adresses" page of the IELTS registration form... if you havent then immediately do the following two:

1- contact your nearest britishcouncil officer and tell him of your situation.
He will give you a form in which you will have to fill in their address (the same on which you mailed your CDR)

in this way EA will get your ORIGINAL Ielts result from the BRITISHCOUNCIL directly.... they dont trust anyone else... so attaching a photocopy etc wont help.


2- by now you would have received your payment receipt page, on this they have clearly mentioned your Contact ID number, you can find this six seven digit number. Now write and email or a letter to the EA, telling them that you had just directed the britishcouncil to forward my original result to your office. (Also attach the correspondace you had with british council,... like any extra payment you made, photocopy of the new page with EA address you filled.)

Thats all,

i hope this will help your cause, anything else, let me know.


Cheers,

p.s my apologies for the typos... as if i type slow then my mind skip the ideas... :)

Hello Guys,

I have a query on IELTS listening test.
How does the listening test takes place ?
I mean, do we hear the audio on a speaker or we have to use ear phones ?
