Due to procrastination, my application for Australian PR under skill migration was hindered by my lack of points due to my age bracket. Nevertheless, I was determined to do this for my children’s future. So I approached several agents in 2011 but all of them were not hopeful and told me that my chances for qualification was very slim. The only way that I could still qualify was to achieve maximum points from my IELTS score and to get some points from my spouse’s skill . Despite the not so encouraging assessment, I set out to garner the points from IELTS. I tried many times but each time I missed by a small margin.
I was about to give up until my wife’s friend introduced us to Susan from Worldlink. Based on her professional view and experience, she was confident that I would be able to secure points for my spouse’s skill and encouraged me to try to get the points from IELTS. That was in early 2013. I kept her posted of my results and she continued to provide me with tips and guides on the exam. By March 2013, I was still not able to score on the IELTS and decided to put off my attempt for a while.
I had almost given up when Susan called me in Jul 2013 to follow up on my status. That call and with the support from my colleague, prompted me to take the IELTS one last time. By the grace of God, I finally managed to score in my Nov 2013 sitting. From then onwards, Susan guided and steered us on our path to securing our residence visa. Our application was submitted in Dec 2013, and thanks to the efficient help of Susan and her team, our application proceeded smoothly and was approved in Nov 2014.
My family is now preparing to relocate to Australia next year. Susan’s encouragement and personalised and professional touch have made all this possible. We are ever so grateful.
