I have 80 + 5 points with 90 overall in PTE.
I have updated my skill select EOI for victoria 190, last week. I have been told that with 85 points chances are very less for developer programmer.
On the other hand, I am a bit hesitant to apply for 491, because I have been told by my current organisation that they can transfer me to their Melbourne branch if I have a work permit, but if I have 491, I will not be able to work in my current organisation, which is located in the suburbs of Melbourne.
Is there any hope of getting an invite with 85 points, if so how many months? Will I get any preference for state nomination, if I get a transfer letter from my organisation?
