    CEC CRS 448: Should I give new IELTS or wait?

    Hey all, I have 448 points (CEC), and noticed that pre-covid levels were mostly 460+. I did some silly things in IELTS which I can easily improve on, but just wanted some opinions on this score. Should I re-take IELTS or wait a few months? I just applied for Extress Entry last week.

    TRV Refused cos we forgot to mention previous attempt

    TRV Refused cos we forgot to mention previous attempt

    No, it doesn't say "misrepresentation" (my bad, I somehow used that word while attempting to paraphrase). Another question I have is that at the end, it says "this application is closed and this letter communicates our final and official decision in respect of it". Can this still be appealed...

    TRV Refused cos we forgot to mention previous attempt

    Here's what the letter said as reasons for refusal: There's no mentioned of the word "ban" anywhere. Also, my mom doesn't work, and has never travelled outside country before. Now, what do you think is the best way to appeal this (as to what should we write as reasons and what kind of...

    She definitely wasn't banned from my memory of reading letter (it was read over the phone by my mom). I'll give you the exact wording soon (my country has night-time and family's likely asleep right now, and they have the letters).

    Does deferring a co-op term count as semester off?

    He had a semester in this January though and will have another one starting this September regardless if he takes coop or not, so I think that should still count as full time. Though yes, as you suggest, it'll be better to confirm with the international-services. Yup, and to be honest I don't...

    Does deferring a co-op term count as semester off?

    Deferring the co-op is allowed and is ok, but he isn't sure about if it'll be legal to work at his part-time off campus as well as the research project during the time for which he deferred co-op (since CIC rules say that you cannot work if you take break from semester (does deferring co-op...

    Does deferring a co-op term count as semester off?

    Yes (I/he think), he in fact did have a summer break last year (co-ops start after first-3 college-semesters are complete), and I think even this year he would otherwise have a summer break if it wasn't co-op term (after 3 semesters, it alternates between one co-op term and one regular semester...
