Note: "The ACT has a fixed number of nomination places available each month (pro-rata against the annual allocation).  The highest ranked Matrix were invited to apply for ACT nomination. The cutoff for selection depended on the remaining monthly allocation, the date and time of Matrix submission, occupation cap and demand. The higher the demand for an occupation, the higher the rank of the Matrix score invited    

The minimum ranking score is an indication only and not a guarantee that an invitation was issued. Invitations will not be issued if you have an active application in the system; or if you have previously received ACT nomination.

Invitations are not guaranteed. We will not respond to requests for information on ranking or the likelihood of receiving an invitation. Matrix will not be prioritised or issued invitations based on personal circumstances. This includes, but is not limited to, visa expiry dates or a change in circumstances including critical birthdays"
