Alternative English Language Tests for Australian Visa Applicants

Starting from 23 November 2014, the Australian Immigration Department have been accepting English language test scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language internet-based test (TOEFL iBT) and the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) across the Temporary Graduate, Skilled, Former Resident, and Work and Holiday visa programmes.

Scores from the Advanced Cambridge English (CAE) Test will also be accepted from a test taken on or after 1 January 2015 (to coincide with the launch of Cambridge English Language Assessment's new reporting system).

These tests are alternatives to the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and the Occupational English Test (OET), and have been accepted in the Student visa programme since 2011.
Student visa applicants can continue to provide scores from the IELTS, OET, TOEFL iBT, PTE Academic or Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) tests.

  1. Please sister what do you know about Ov Australia. They contacted me that they are immigration agent and that they want to help me migrate to australia

  2. Please, be very careful with them.
    Most of their agents are scammers.
    Do not disclose your credit card details to anybody, because they will surely,
    request for it in your conversation.

  3. This is important to remember while you are browsing IELTS or TOEFL preparation course, if you are planning on applying for citizenship or collage and intend to use your results as an entry requirement.
