More English Test Options for Applicants for Australian Visas
Australian assistant minister for immigration and border protection, Michaelia Cash announces that now visa applicants will be benefited from new alternatives in English language testing with the accumulation of two evaluation options.

Cash stated that applicants of temporary graduate, work and holiday, skilled and former resident visas can take advantage of these alternative options. The announcement includes the addition of test scores of PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English Academic) and TOEFL iBT (Test of English Language as a Foreign Language internet-based test) to the list of proofs that demonstrates the proficiency in English language.

He added that the tests are considered as the alternatives to the Occupational English Test (OET) and International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and are being accepted  in the student visa program since 2011.

Cash admitted that they are having plans to widen the English language test market and are in line with Cambridge English-Advanced (CAE) test scores that are set to be accepted from the beginning of next year.
