New Programme Year New Pro Rated Occupation Group
Occupation group  Auditors, Company Secretaries and Corporate Treasurers is now being pro-rated. This affected applications for subclass 189 and 489 visas. Pro rated occupations are occupations that receive very high number of EOI applications. Because of the ‘popularity’ of these occupations, invitation places are staggered to ensure the quota’s for these high demand places are not given out too quickly. This way the system allows higher point applicants to be considered throughout the programme year. We highly recommend that you learn more about pro rated groups and how to understand SkillSelect round results.
We do not as yet know what the cut off point score for  Auditors, Company Secretaries and Corporate Treasures is as it still reads as TBA on the SkillSelect site. See occupation ceilings tab on the SkillSelect page. Those nominated occupations in this group should check the SkillSelect page regularly for updates on the cut off point score!
