Question And Answer

Your CRS score is dependent on 5 major factors which are your Age, Education qualification, Language (IELTS/TEF/CLEPIP) scores, Work Experience, and Sibling connection. The CIC website has a CRS calculator. You can enter your details for an instant evaluation. It will tell you where exactly you stand. Following is the link for CRS calculator:

Advantage Factors: If you have a sibling in Canada who is a citizen or a PR, you get 15 points. Canadian education will fetch 15-30 points while at least 1 yr of Canadian work experience will give you another 40-80 points.

Since not many applicants will have the above factors; I am assuming that you are between 21-29 years with at least a Bachelors degree, 3 years work experience and don’t have any connection to Canada; and have never worked there before. Based on that, you might want to consider the following 3 points:

  1. PNP Nomination & LMIA certified job offer: PNP Nomination gives you 600 points and most likely your profile will get selected from the pool. LMIA job offer can fetch you 50-200 points.
  2. Language Scores: Concentrate on individual section scores rather than the overall score. In IELTS if you have scored 7.5 in speaking and writing sections; and at least 8 in the remaining 2 sections, then that’s a pretty good score. Additionally, you can take the TEF/CLEPIP test to enhance the language score.
  3. For Couples: The spouse with higher CRS points should be the main applicant. Making the spouse who is between 21-29 years of age with higher language scores and education as the main applicant will fetch you more points than vice versa.

Be realistic

  1. Before you enroll with an agent/immigration consultancy, please do a self-evaluation by entering your details in the CRS tool. These agents and consultancies will tell that you are eligible, and being ‘just eligible’ is not going to help you at all. After all, being eligible to appear for CAT or any entrance exam doesn’t guarantee admission to the institute; for that, you need to beat other candidates in each section.
  2. It’s advisable to take the language test before enrolling with the agent/consultancy, or even considering immigrating in the first place. This will give you a clear idea of what you can score. Please practice for at least 3 weeks and take as many mock tests as possible. This will tell you about what you may score and areas of strengths/improvements.
  3. Keep a track of the monthly draws diligently. Following is the link for it: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigra… The last draw was held on Jan 24, 2018, and the cut-off CRS point was 444. In my observation based on the 2017 trend, profiles with 440 and above CRS points has the highest probability of selection.
  4. Scores between 420-439 keeps you in the twilight zone where the luck factor decides your fate. Selection of profiles within 400-420 is minuscule; and below 400 mark is well, unfortunately, ZERO.

I hope the information helps!
