This post's title won't be strange for they who live or want to live in Australia.
Yeah, it's Australia English Standard for applying any visa or immigration purpose.
Some of them consider it easy to pass it, but some even have to repeat it for 5 times and not even pass it.
I know you will think 'Is it that hard? Really?' after you read my sentence above.
I also think that when I found that many people have to go back to my country because they don't pass IELTS so they don't be able to apply for Permanent Resident.

We need band 7 to apply for PR, band 6 for TR.
I took the test twice until now. First is when I went here for the first time three years ago and I pass it directly to be able to go to Diploma part 1 as we only need band 5.5 for part 1.
The second one is last week and I am still waiting for the result. My heart is racing now and I keep thinking whether I can pass it or not. Some of my friends got their results last Friday and they all don't pass. The most annoying part of IELTS is even if you get 8 for one of the categories (either reading, writing, listening or speaking), but you also get 6 or even 6.5 in one of the categories, you will be failed. Sometimes, it upsets many people.

Now, I can only hope and pray until my result is out which is this Friday. Urghhhh....!!

    i think this one has to get a minimum of 7 in each band. i guess some people are blessed with good english and some need to practice a lot
