Do as requested, and do remember to click on the button at the bottom of the attachments page which says something like “I have submitted the documents as requested” or something similar.

Also, when you have come to Australia, your big mission is to collect PR points. For the record, I am still doing that. My advice based on what I went through, is that don’t delay anything. Do PTE, Do NAATI CCL, Do a Professional Year if you can. Do them as soon as you can.
… say that the first two years of their career are not counted as “experience”. If that is the case, there is a risk to come to Australia if you don’t have two years' experience in another country. Because then, the year you work in Australia will not add any points to the PR point calculation.

This is the exact reason why we still want to go back in the memory lane of our school days and university life. We all have really great networks from our schools and universities. The people that we met during our school/university time have played a major role in our lives. They’ve shaped us remarkable in positive manner.
Not everyone is as lucky as many of us have been to get to where we are. Now its your turn to give a break to someone: Give that person with a weird resume a chance. Give that person with poor confidence a chance. Give that person with bad English a chance. Give that person with a good heart a chance. Give that person with no experience but with passion a chance. Who knows, some of them might end up being people who help you build a billion dollar company!
