The results for the 23 August round of SkillSelect were released last week.

The fact that the required scores for 189 invitations had started to drop came as a surprise and a relief for many applicants for General Skilled Migration. As of August 23 roundup, for non-pro rata occupations, the minimum score for an invitation for a Skilled Independent Subclass 189 visa has dropped from 70 to 65.

However, for accountants and auditors, the minimum score remains at 75 points. The minimum score for Software and Applications Programmers and Computer Network Professionals has dropped to 65 points, while that for ICT Business and Systems Analysts remains at 70. Since most engineering specialisations are not pro rata so the minimum score will be 65 for these occupations.
