PNP ITA: February 2, 2022 [Accepted]
Overall score: 1043

Date of language test: Feb-28-2020
Date of test results: March-13th-2020
Speaking: 7
Reading: 7.5
Listening:7.5
Writing: 6.5

Few Questions in my mind:
1.
Am I still eligible to submit the old score - granted I submit it before Feb-28th-2022?
2. If not, Should I Straight away submit/update with my new IELTS score?
3. Also, it would be helpful to have guidance on Sample LOE-format/explanation and accurately to whom should it be addressed to?
4. Do I get to attach the LOE at the end of the Express entry profile submission?

1. According to the CIC website, the scores need to be valid at the time you submit your application. If you submit the application before 02/28, you should be ok with the old scores. https://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/questions-answers-by-topic.asp?st=29.4.2

2. I see your section scores have dropped in the new test. Not sure if that will have any effect since you have already received a nomination, but maybe something to research a little further.

3. I think if you can manage it, just go ahead and submit the application before 02/28 with the old score. If they request an updated score later, you can provide the new test scores at that time.

Everything in your profile is freezed once you submit your application, so if you submit before 28 Feb 2022, you should be fine, and you can add the new test as additional doucment. So its better to submit your application asap.

Delete Row Greyed Out

So,
I filled in all the details and hit continue.
It prompted me to submit all the documents.
Upon looking I realized that it is also asking me to submit a document for the name change.

That, I did not intend to.
I did mention my casual/alias name.
But I did not know that I would be asked for the documents.
Is there a way to revert back to this change?

Did the prompt specifically ask if you have had your legal name changed, or was it more something like "Other names/aliases used"?

Probably the best way to go about this is to attach an LOE stating you had mentioned your preferred name/alias in the interest of full transparency, but that you have never had your legal name changed. Might also be helpful to attach all your government IDs that show the one and only name on all of them.

Thank you, for your quick response,

I was luckily able to modify by changing the questionaries from-
"Has this person ever used another name?" NO
That removed the entire greyed-out row.

A silly mistake in observation from my end. Apologies.

Glad you were able to figure it out. Best of luck with the rest of the application.
