November 2014 will come as a relief to aspiring Australian migrants. Australia Department of Immigration is set to accept TOEFL iBT, PTE, and other English Assessment Tests besides just IELTS. The assessment tests will be benchmarked against the IELTS score for language proficiency factors like listening, reading, writing, and speaking.
