WHY IMPROVE POINTS SCORE?
For all points-based skilled visas, you can boost your point score by getting a higher English test score than the minimum required. For example:
IELTS 6 (Competent English) gains you no score on the points table;
IELTS 7 (Proficient English) however gains you 10 points; and
IELTS 8 (Superior English) gains you 20 points.
Getting higher than the minimum required English score is a common way for visa applicants to boost their points score.
LEVELS OF ABILITY
FUNCTIONAL ENGLISH: 4.5 (average over the four modules)
VOCATIONAL ENGLISH: 5 (minimum score on all modules)
COMPETENT ENGLISH: 6 (minimum score on all modules)
PROFICIENT ENGLISH: 7 (minimum score on all modules)
SUPERIOR ENGLISH: 8 (minimum score on all modules)
Australian Immigration recognises five levels of English ability. Above are the approximate IELTS scores need to attain these.
ENGLISH TEST SYSTEMS
Besides IELTS, Australian Immigration accepts results from four other test systems:

Occupational English Test (OET) *only for medical and allied health professionals*
An English test must have been done no more than three years before lodgement of the visa application. Most skilled visas need at least Competent English but for many a score of 7 will be required. Competent English is automatically established (without needing a test) if you hold a passport issued from the following countries:
