Ok..i think they may have some meeting this weekend to discuss about this. By any chance if they increase quota chances are there to clear.

Which field you are filling ?

Hey guys, I’ve been reading up on how the points are calculated. I have 20 points from RMLT, but just wondering if the salary points comes from the advertisement or the offer of employment? For example, if my employer advertises my job at 35-45k, but only pays me 35k, what would my points be?

35 points. When your employer applies for the certificate of sponsorship they just put in the salary you’ll actually get.

Unfortunately it is absolutely, 100% impossible to make any kind of predictions about what the cut off will be.

In February we had nearly as many RCOS available as there will be in April and you still needed a score of 46 and now there is a larger backlog because the cut off in March was 56...however we don’t know yet if they will make any policy changes which could potentially make the cut off lower.

We will all just have to wait and see when they start the allocations.

Hello all, i have 43 points and keeping my hopes higher that it will get through in April. Any opinions.?
I was just wondering if rcos is allocated this month, how much time i will have before i can join?
My plan is, once rcos is allocated and once i receive VISA i will resign from my current employer in India.
Let me know the clarity on this if anyone have something. :(

I'm curious to know how long usually it takes home office to start releasing results after having the sitting meeting. I know that this month the sitting will be 11 April. Based from what I saw in March, there were results the following day but these were released slowly and some got their results as late as 26 March.

It also seemed that higher application scores got their results first. Is this a valid observation?

Thanks

Usually employers will get results within 5 working days of the allocation date (the 11th or the first working day after that if it falls on a weekend). Some months though there have been delays for whatever reason (short staffed, etc.). Would make sense it took them longer in March because there were only a very small amount available so they’d have to go through them more throughly to find the cut off score - that’s why higher points tend to find out first...HO are able to notify them right away because they know they’ll reach whatever the cut off is.
