I have scored 7.5 overall band(L-8.5, R-7, W-7, S-7.5) in IELTS. If I am correct, I have a CLB 9 score. Besides, my ECA evaluation has been completed successfully.

The CRS tool makes my score as 435, however, as per the latest trend in CRS draws, the minimum score required is around 441. I think my only options to increase my score are to get a valid job offer and/or get provincial nomination.

  1. Should I apply for Express Entry program or Provincial Nomination program, such has OINP?
  2. Do you think I should give IELTS again a my tentative score 435 is lower than the last draw cutoff, i.e., 442?
  3. Besides, I was thinking of giving TEF as getting a CLB 7 or more in TEF will give me extra 30 points. What do you think?
  4. If I do get an ITA and I do not have enough funds, what if I ask a relative to deposit the funds required in my account , to show proof of funds?
  5. I have taken help from a consultancy for my IELTS training and WES evaluation. Now they want to get my profile created for a fee, as usual. Is it a good idea to create Express entry profile on my own?
  6. During the express entry profile creation process, do I need to submit a fee? When do I actually have to pay a fee to the Canadian govt. at this stage?
  7. Do I need to submit any proof of funds during my profile creation process?
for the question about increasing your CRS score, i think the best think you can do is go to the CRS calculator tool and play with the ielts scores to get an idea how much individual scores in each section you need to get your CRS beyong 440.

Hello buddy

This post was really helpful. I am living in Canada from last 2.5 years and I am on my work permit right now. I got an ITA so I want to ask you that do I need PCC from Canada as well as my home country India too ? or only from Canada is fine ?
Moreover, my sister got COPR yesterday but I already got an ITA. so in order to update that sibling status what all I need from her ?

<<< This post is straight from my blog. I thought it would be better to have a copy on the forum too>>>
I PCC from Ukraine was issued Nov, 2017 and she left the country in 2011. never returned.
PCC still valid? Is there any validity? Please, let me know how sure you are.

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and I have a query regarding the work experience aspect while calculating the CRS Score. I completed my 3 years Bachelor Degree in 2015. I'll be having 3 years of work experience by this year end. Also simultaneously I'm pursuing a Professional Qualification that will be completed in January 2019. Once I'm done with that I will be getting dual degree points.
But what I came to know from a Consultant is that my work experience that i'll possess only after the completion of my Second degree would be considered if I'm choosing Dual Degree. Is that true? Does that mean I should go with the 3 years Work Experience and not apply for the dual degree?
My CRS Score with the work ex is at 432. Will I be able to get an OINP?

Thanks in Advance

Hi Guys,

I have a 420+ score.
I checked the CIC draw for ITAs as below :

CRS Score Range Number of Candidates
601-1200
244
451-600
1,101
401-450
28,830
441-450
822
431-440 8,379
421-430 5,952
411-420 6,675
401-410 7,002

But I did not receive an invitation.So what is the criteria on which the ITAs are released to candidates ?

You don't need Canada pcc. You can only claim points for sibling once she attains pr status, you will need her address proof, utility bill etc

If dont wait to claim points then don't wait.
You still need to add siblings details even if you don't claim points including parents.
Thanks buddy,, but should i put yes or no on any sibling as a permanent resident ? As she will get her card later & till that time i would have already applied.
