As per the new Australian Point System, 20 points will be given to skilled migrants having ‘Superior” English with IELTS score 8 or 79 points in the PTE exam. On the other hand, 10 points are given to the applicants with IELTS 7 bands in each module (listening, writing, speaking and reading) or 65 points PTE score in each module (reading, writing, listening, and speaking). But, candidates with competent English get no points.
