  1. Lol the reading part.

    I found speaking and reading the easiest and am not a native speaker. I kind of understood you are natives because of your scores, but even for the natives, it is a struggle to score 9 in writing. Your preparation explains it.

    All the best
  2. My AOR on 8th December with upfront medical but still no response. I am inland applicant.
  3. Dec 1 AORs started yesterday and today. If IRCC doesn't slow down or speed up, you can expect yours on Jan 17-18.
  4. Medical passed...:)

  5. Congrats.
    When was your AOR?
  6. 1 dec
  7. Haha, as an English speaker, born in England and an "English with creative writing degree" holder, I didn't score 9 in the writing =P "learning to write the answers the way they want you to" makes a huge difference as it's so subjective outside of this (hence the lenience in score vs listening and reading which are right or wrong answer wise). I considered contesting it but I just wanted to get my submission into the EE pool as I turn 31 next month
  8. Again, congrats, did you get any msg about biometrics?
  9. Tell me about it. See my age... and this month I will be adding 1 to that. My wife is 2 years younger, so our CRS would be higher there if we chose to do it that way, but accounts for POF are in my name so we would have issues there.

    I drove from Texas to Oklahoma for IELTS, so I didn't want to have to do it twice. Oklahoma City was less booked up than Dallas, so I was able to schedule it sooner.
  10. Thanks... no nothing about biometrics yet.
  11. You won't get biometrics request if you weren't already required to prior to Dec 31. The AOR locked in that date.

  12. Apparently Biometrics for some countries became mandatory since july!
    I was asked to pay for it prior submission, (85CAD). Im AOR Dec 13
  13. Yes, it became effective for Asia, Asia Pacific, and the Americas on December 31. If you didn't weren't asked to pay it when you did AOR, I don't think a request will be coming. Those who AOR in January or later will all have to do biometrics, if they are outland). Inland applications aren't able to do biometrics yet, so that will not be required until Service Canada (or whever) can accept them.
  14. In my case it was added on the requested money and i paid for it.
  15. Finally our folks have started to see some movement. Hopefully MEP timelines will reduce over this month.
