Q. If I submit my case now and the pass mark changes again, how will that affect my application?
Answer: Although no changes to the Regulations or pass mark are presently under official discussion, this is always a possibility. In the last case in which this took place, we saw that the immigration department sought to apply these changes to cases already in the queue.
However, given political reaction to these measures, and the subsequent outcome of the class-action law suit on behalf of applicants in that position, it is not anticipated that this sort of retroactive implementation would again take place.
