Immigration provided statistics on invitations for the 03 Aug 2015 invitation round.
The pass mark for most occupations was 60 points, and applicants for 189 would expect to be invited next round with this score.
Invitations for certain occupations are being issued on a pro-rata basis, and as a result have a higher minimum score of 65 for an invitation.
The following occupations are in this category:
ICT Business and Systems Analysts (ANZSCO Group 2611)
Accountants (ANZSCO Group 2211)
Software and Applications Programmers (ANZSCO Group 2613)
Even with 65 points, it may take several invitation rounds to be invited in these occupations.
