    hi cheerup! have you decided whether you're going to accept the december or not? i am for december but i don't know yet if i still can catch up with visa and retaking the ielts exam. my agent informed me just this monday that i am advised to take again since my ielts will expire this december.. i got disappointed with them since they never told me ahead of time. i was supposedly for october but got problems then rescheduled it for december.
    That's very sad. you're almost there already!
    When will your LOE expires?

    Hi cheerup,

    Yes, I've decided to turn down the December intake offer (it was a tough decision I tell you!).
    I did not apply to other schools because I thought I'd get into the Feb intake next year..
    But given the situation, I'll have to start scouting for other schools! Sigh!
    Hope you sort out yours soon.. God bless you!
    hi,
    yes, sleepless nights, tough decisions but I decided to take the slot. my loe will expire 1st quarter next yr and I don't know if AHPRA will give extensions.
    I also found out today that I was accepted at mercy health. I was not sure that they would consider me because during my interview, they were concerned that I would finish weeks after my loe expiration date. I decided to go with aaon just to be sure. God willing, I hope to get the visa in time for the bp. God bless on your school hunting! try mercy, they have a feb intake.

    go for dec! i think there's still time! i dont have the eCoe so i cant apply for a visa yet. let's wait and hope together

    re: ielts -- i actually emailed ahpra about my expiring ielts and they told me that i dont need it for registration as i was assessed already (caveat: dont take my word for this, get a personal written confirmation from them just to be sure). i forwarded ahpra's email to aaon and maybe that's one of the reason they offered me a slot. nevertheless, i resat the ielts last week and im still waiting for the result.

    Hi bigbrowneyes.

    I did not enroll in AAoN but instead i enrolled at University of Ballarat and im ok with them already. The enrollment procedures are simple and they're very approachable too. The intakes for January 2013 is already full, so they put me on the next batch which is on June 2013; quite long months to wait but im Ok with it, as long as in the long run i will be pursuing my IRON program before my LOE expires.

    By the way, hope you could settle your problem with your ielts. God Bless..
