No worries. You just take the 3 best results, in this case 3 Cs. That equates to 85 points which is an OP of 4. That would get her in just about most courses.

Re: National insurance!

Yes and No. When it pays out in 10, 12, 15 years time or whenever then you will get the same amount as every other pensioner in the UK gets. Then after that it isn't increased in line with inflation.

Re: Who else has been in Oz 2 years and 5 days?

Me too, well arrived 1 July 2005, so I think that's the same date. Get that citizenship quick before they insist on a test and the fee goes up from $120 to $240.
