Yes I did. Now having some difficulties for the employability requirements. I'm not sure if I can include jobs that requires security clearance as they indicate I can not include federal government jobs. Quite confused about this. By the way, I'm an applicant from overseas.
cant apply anything that requires security clearance according to my agent

Considering the current trend, the rounds may go as follow:

1. January 31 (Round 4): Remaining 65 pointers/60 pointers upto 16 December 2018(200 invites)
2. Round 5: Remaining 60 pointers/55 pointers upto 16 December 2018 (200 invites)
3. Round 6: Remaining 55 pointers (200 invites)
4. Round 7: Remaining 55 pointers/50 pointers up to 16 December 2018 (200 invites)
5. Round 8: Remaining 50 pointers up to 16 December 2018 (200 invites)

Upto 16 December 2018: refers to the Matrix that was submitted until this date (from 29 November until 16 December 2018)

This is how the remaining 1000 places will go up to round 8.

If they are doing 2 rounds every month the process will go until march end. but as per the email posted by @adb received from ACT about the places allocation, ONLY 20% have come back to submit application after receiving pre-invite (for round 1 & 2), meaning out of around 300 pre-invites only 60 responded, accordingly from April they might be doing rounds for the unoccupied places from round 1 to round 8. This way the program will be further stretched until July 2019 to complete the total 1400 places for ACT 190.

Hope this helps
Will they reach to 45 points

In the ACT Matrix, can I claim 5 Points for Spouse English proficiency? My wife has done IELTS. I'm currently scoring 50 points, hope I can acquire 55 through her English.

If I am not wrong, Spouse English proficiency is valid for 12 months. think it depends on when she got her results.

@krukatz03 how is your processing go? Did you manage to find the five jobs to submit as samples? Did you write heaps for each job you found? Some info would be most helpful to others who have to go through the same process.

Yes once you submit the old one is obsolete. Still worth it. Cos you are adding points. What will your new points be after adding her English proficiency
Thank you.

I did manage to find and submit on time. Though its not that easy to search also, as I can not include government jobs. I'm hoping everything goes well.

As of now around 1500 matrix invitations have been issued.

Earlier as we came to know, there are 1/3rd people who have actually submitted their application. Plenty of fake matrix applications are floating around.

I have sent an email to ACT asking about the current status and I haven't received any feedback regarding the remaining places.

Also I tried calling them, they close at 5pm and I missed to communicate with anyone there.

I suggest we all gather and put some efforts in getting information from ACT about how many places have been filled and how many remaining.

This way we will know if we can get an invite.

you can claim for that . However, it is still best if you can hit the proficient or superior mark as it could really help to boost up your points.

Definitely not easy. I have started to look for job openings now. Cos I think I have a high chance of being invited on 28 March. Only managed to find four relevant roles within the timeframe the matrix has indicated. (Counting backwards from 29 March)

That's good. For sure you'll be able to find few more after you recieve your invite. I waited for 10 days before i've submitted mine. My employability explanations are all straight to the point and simple. However it still took 2 pages of justifications. I hope i can convince them.

I hope to find that last relevant job ad before the draw. I have done the commitment letter already. So that everything is ready to be submitted the moment i get called up

I’m sure you’ll be able to find few more before and even during the invite. By the way, I receive an email yesterday that the decision has been made and my application was assigned to a delegate. Hoping to have a positive outcome. I don’t know if there’s a possibility for rejection on that stage.
