New changes in English Language Test Scores of Subclasses 476 and 485
The Australian government is  all set to change the English language test scores for Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) and Recognized Graduate (subclass 476) visa classes from 2015 April. An overseas individual who file an application for any of the visas on or after April 18 2015, is recommended to submit the proof of having attained one of the following in the relevant test undertaken in the past three years immediately before the lodging of the a visa request.

  • A prospective applicant filing an application for the Temporary Graduate or Recognized Graduate is suggested to score a minimum of six points in all the four major test components such as reading, writing, speaking and listening. 
  • Furthermore a score of at least ‘B’ in OET (Occupational English Test) 
  • An average score of 64 with nothing below 4 for reading, 14 for speaking, 14 for writing, 4 for listening in the test of TOEFL iBT (Test of English as a Foreign Language Internet-based test )
  • A total score of a minimum of 50 with not less than 36 in any of the four components (reading, listening, speaking and writing) in the Pearson Test of English Academic
  • An overseas count of minimum of 169 with nothing below than 154 in any of the four components of reading, writing, listening and speaking in a Cambridge English: Advanced test that has been undertaken after 1 January 2015
  • The new amendment reportedly means that competent English language is no longer applicable to subclasses 476 and 485.
  • As per the new plan, only English language test scores will be changed. Moreover, almost all applicants will meet the requirements if they hold a valid passport granted by the developed nations.
