You do not need to appear for IELTS again, it's good that you submitted your application before the 23rd. So that's lock there. you can update the express entry profile with the new score and for OINP your old score is valid as long as you have already submitted the application.Hello guys,
I got my NOI for OINP - Human Capital Priorities Tech Draw on Feb 16, 2021. I submitted my application today March 19, 2021. CRS score : 460
I have provided all the documents as per the requirements. However, I have a problem with IELTS expiration which is due on March 23, 2021. Though My IELTS is valid on NOI date and OINP Application submission date, it is going to expire just 4 days after OINP application submission and payment.
I have taken an exam on March 14 (results announced today March 19), but unfortunately I could not get my past score of CLB 9 in Writing which missed by 0.5 and it reduced to CLB 8, other sections are Listening - CLB 10, Reading - CLB 10 and Speaking - CLB 9 (all are same as previous IELTS result) , if i have to update this result now to keep my Express Entry profile active then score drops significantly to 403.
I have submitted an Letter of Explanation today , mentioning I have my IELTs valid till date for OINP and I will update my EE profile once new IELTS is done to keep my EE profile active. (did not mention about the today's result which I have now).
As per OINP at the time of submission IELTS should not be more than 2 years old which is met in my case.
Will it be a problem if OINP checks my EE profile and finds that score has become less now (before I update next test result)?
What if I may take some time to get back that 0.5 extra to CLB 9 in writing, when ideally OINP starts looking at our documents and EE profile after application submission?
Please provide genuine inputs.
Thanks for your reply, I got my new scores today and I got CLB 10 in all sections to retain as well as improve in EE CRS score to 466.You do not need to appear for IELTS again, it's good that you submitted your application before the 23rd.

OINP might ask you for additional documentation or information if you didn’t fill “other activities” info accurately. So basically, your last 10 years are the combination of education, employment and other activities.
Answering to your 2nd query, not an issue. That’s fine.
Mention your internships period in Other activities, you don't need to submit any documents to support these internships.Hi Nitin, need your advice on similar lines. In my OINP E-Filling form - In my work history I have submitted 3 years of work experience (for which I claimed points for my CRS score). However, I am planning to mention small 3 months internship in the 'other activities' section, although I do not have any letter/salary slips for those internships, should I just not mentions those internships and simply put 'unemployed' over there? what do you suggest?
Hi @loneranger123 did this method work for you? In my case I have received salaries in cash too.Hi Guys, I have 4 years experience at first job. I reached out employer today to obtain pay slip. I am selecting the month of Jan and Dec each year as per OINP application guidance (start and end of period)
a) Manager suggested he can print the salary breakup of requested months on 1 page (in form of table) on company letter head and can sign and stamp as this would be easier than issuing separate pay slip for each month which would be 8 pages and greater hassle
b) Further, he agreed to add column in the same table to show the mode of payment is cash or bank. I think this would suffice for the salaries paid in cash (which are 2 only, for the first year)
Is this fine? Please advise
