Why we have to take English tests for permanent residency?

Dear Prime Minister,

If students are graduating from Australian Universities, then why they have to take English tests for their registration and permanent residency. We studied in English and achieved degrees after passing very hard exams and other assessments in English.  These English tests cannot assess our level because it depends how was the test (easy/hard) and your performance on the test day. International students are very important part of Australia because they are paying very high fees to get their degrees. But their 3-5 years degrees in English are useless because they do not show their level of English, Why?

Australia needs a good amount of people in regional areas, so if you offer good points like 20 extra points to the students who are graduated from well-known universities, so they can be agreed to sign a contract to live and work in the regional areas. According to these English tests, if you achieved 6 bands means you are competent in English so, why health professionals need 7 bands in regards to apply for their registration after completing very hard study like nursing and medicine. If they are able to get registration at 6 bands and if they are getting good points in the regional areas for their permanent residency, so they will move to the low-population areas and can improve Australian economy. 

It would be appreciated if you could consider the above information for a common good.
