Review of Assessment, Appeals & Extensions

Applicants may request for a review of the assessment, appeal against the results of their assessment, or request an extension of a positive result letter for migration purposes.

Review of Assessment

If you disagree with the assessment outcome decision made by AIM you have 2 options available. You can:

  • request to have your assessment decision reviewed. Your application for a review of a negative outcome must be lodged within 6 months of the issuing of the original result letter.
  • appeal the decision if your original and/or review applications were both unsuccessful.

An additional fee of AUD$300 (plus GST where applicable) is payable to cover the costs of processing the review of assessment outcome. A review of assessment will take up to 4 weeks.

Please note: Review of assessment will not be processed without payment.
