Logically, with classes offered throughout the summer and fall, they have to fill them with Tier 2, current TOL and potentially more TOL candidates. I'd assume those in the 'best qualified' band could still receive something this bid, or are early-wave TOL next bid- i.e December. It's entirely possible the bands are not significant and we are overthinking it.To those of you that are mentioning 'best qualified', pool 2, pool 1, etc. I received a TOL at the end of February as a pool 2 North East applicant. When I had called HR at the start of February, they had told me that more selections could be made but most likely they were under the impression that no further selections would be made and I would have to reapply. Just because you weren't accepted yet, does not mean the ATO will not get around to selecting you.
The reason why some people that are in the 'best qualified' category but were not yet selected could also be due to the personality test that was given during the exam. It isn't clear if the personality test factors into your score of being 'best qualified' but if you had failed the personality quiz, that could be a reason why you were not selected.
