45 points refusal!
Just got an email from HR confirming refusal, as it did not meet the minimum points. Have been trying since Jan. Was on 36 points earlier and then raised to 45 in April but still no luck. Had to come back to India as previous visa expired end of last month. Not sure when this wait will end and if employers will have that kind of patience.

Hii Guys

there are some more good news also for IT/Teaching profession. UK Govt is considering review of its shortage list and considering allowing unlimited number of IT/Teachers once they complete the review of its shortage list.

The new structure would allow an unrestricted number of non-EU professional to enter the UK in the acute shortage areas like IT, engineering and teaching.

https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/nr ... 619479.cms

Let us hope this is also effective from july.
Please do not go by this source. This is their interpretation of the government policy which was announced on 15 and don't believe anything has changed then what we know already. They are just assuming that people will get through more easily (because now with Doctors and Nurses excluded from the Tier 2 cap) this frees up those RCoS which they would have received earlier. I highly doubt the the "unrestricted" word in the article.
Yes, I completely agree with voldy1990. The newspaper has misunderstood the immigration related changes UK HO released recently.
Please check the links given.I believe this is not as same as removal of nurses and doctors and its favorable effect on other professions(40% efffect due to removal). There are lot of IT occupations under shortage list and government wants to review this and they dnt want any restrictions on those jobs. That is my understanding after analysis of all the news headlines given in the link. Hope for the best :-)

Agreed that the news on review of shortage list is new. But statements like UK Govt is considering review of its shortage list and considering allowing unlimited number of IT/Teachers once they complete the review of its shortage list are quite misleading as you would know only highly skilled / specialised jobs make it to the shortage list and it will never apply entirely to any given profession. Thanks for sharing the news though. Cheers!

Dear Moderator & Others,

I am sorry to ask this silly question, but understanding this Appendix J & K thing fails me! :cry:
Can anyone please tell me if job code: 2423 is under shortage occupation?
Thanks.

UK has raised the minimum points requirement again for the month of June. I had 50+ points and would have made the May cut if my application would have been in on time but I just got notice that I was rejected for June applications for NOT meeting the minimum points requirement.

I have heard that the minimum points threshold will continue to be raised each month as there is considerable pressure to lessen immigration.

Did you get rejected for having 55 points?

Sorry to hear the news, this is quite unfortunate in spite the delay. Can you please confirm what was your salary range? I am assuming it would be 55k+?

Salary was 45K non shortage
I can't remember whether or not the points were 51 or 55 but I do know my employer said we should be fine for June because we would have made the cut for May; obviously that is not the case.

Thank you for your update. Can you please elaborate on your points? What do you mean by 50+? Did you have 50? Also who said that minimum points threshold will continue to rise? An immigration consultant? Very concerned as I'm waiting since April with 50 points...

if any salary increases ,they should have done RLMT with increase in salary.

With 45k salary, you have 45 points. Sorry that you didn't make it this month.
Just a little piece of advice: If you are not sure of your points and get rejected, please mention this in your post. It can create chaos and heartbreak otherwise to all others waiting for their results! Hope you will understand. Thanks.

I sent an email to employer to clarify refused or rejected . They replied refused so this means refused due to points. 45k salary . 3 attempts and they decided to withdraw my offer :( can i convince them to try again next month in case minimum required points dropped ? Or lose hope?
