    Default IELTS and PR under SMC

    Hi,

    I'm an Indian citizen and I've small query regarding taking IELTS test. I've done my below education with English as a medium of instruction:
    - Primary and Secondary education
    - Bachelor of Engineering, majoring in Computer Science

    When applying for PR, I'll have a Skilled employment in NZ on a permanent basis.

    Do you think there can be a possibility of INZ asking for IELTS certificate?

    My partner has also done Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics engineering with English as a medium of instruction. Do you think INZ can ask IELTS certificate for her ?

    Thanks

    I think you could state that you've completed your education in the English language when you fill in your EOI form, but it could still happen that INZ will ask you to complete a IELTS test. You can read up about it here.

    Is it really necessary to get a band 6.5 overall score in the IELTS?


    Regards and Advanced Merry Christmas to all

    Unhappy

    Unfortunately they will turn you down if you don't have IELTS test score 6.5.
    They did on me.
    It's funny if you apply for WV or WP you don't need IELTS!?
    Wish you good luck, but if you go for PR be sure you need pass IELTS hell.

    IELTS score 5

    But if you get a band score below 6.5 you can still continue submitting EOI right?
    In which stage they will turn you down?

    Exclamation Go with WV

    Since 1998 till 2006 I was working and living in USA, and I was hoping that I don't need to sat IELTS, I even ask my CO directly "do I need to sat IELTS?" she didn't answer in details she just present to me English proficiency policy for SMC( this happen before submitting application for PR ).
    In that time I make appointment/set the test time and I pay the fees for IELTS, and in the meantime I sat IELTS. I was sure that she will be satisfy with my time spend in USA, but that's was not enough for her. She ask for 6.5 IELTS , but I was not in the mood to sat the test again because it will be just loosing money( That is huge amount in my country) because she give me only a month to prepare for another test.
    That's why I suggest sat the test or apply for WV or WP ,spend some time in NZ and learn very well English then sat the test.
    I'm doing that right now.
    Don't trow the money away I gees in your country is expensive to.

    To answer on your question.
    I have done the test after receiving ITA, witch mean they accept my EOI without IELTS done, I just wrote "Spend eight years in USA" in that time that was enough but later they change his mind.
