my concern is that, how the validity of IELTS is measuerd which is one year. does the expiry date is the date when you send your application to CIO or when you send your appllication to CHC. For example if i send the same application package to CHC after approving from CIO without any change and attach all the document including IELTS which i had mentioned to CIO, will CHC accept it or may say it is expired. While at the time of sending application to CIO my IELTS was valid.
Does the information is locked at the time of sedning application to CIO, if someoen dont want to change his information and want to continue the application with the same information.
Date the application is received at Sydney. Ignore chouhans you don't include your IELTS with the application to Sydney.
