I purchased ielts Liz advanced videos and it really helped with my writing.
I also got professional feedback for my writing to see my areas of weakness.
I used Road to ielts but I didnot find it that helpful.
Writing was my weakness so I found CAMBRIDGE WRITE AND IMPROVE website. It costs 10 pounds per month for practicing ielts writing while being timed like in a real test and it also gives you both task 1 & 2 questions. After you finish you get an estimated band and corrections and feedback. It is all done by the computer. It helped me see my stupid mistakes in my sentence construction and also improved my writing speed.
You need to find your areas of weakness and work on that. I got 35 points more after I maxed out my ielts. I gave it 4 attempts.

For PNP, most provinces will send notice of interest via EE and you can apply or you can apply directly to the pronvince. Each pronvince has different programs and you will find all the information on their website.
I got a notice of interest from Alberta and applied, got nomination certificate after 2 months. I don't have any ties with Alberta i.e. no job offer, no relatives and past study in the province. I got nominated under the Alberta Express Entry Stream.
I hope this information helps.
Thanks a lot for this much information!!! It really helps

There is too much negativity in this grp , even those having 470 are panicking .. pls I hope they flush these 468 and above ppl out on weds . So we can have some peace .
Ok ok I know it is the god given right that only those in 450s can moan and grumble but give the high 460’s some benefit of doubt. They have been waiting nearly 2 months and above to get picked.
Cheers, Here is to hoping you get to complain in peace soon :)

Also, try to find your area of weakness in writing.

In my case, I was stuck at 6.5 in writing, and wrote IELTS 4 times. Then, i came to understand that my handwriting is not good enough.
Then, I took computer delivered test, and get the required band first time.

In addition to my last post proving that there is no definite correlation between maintenance and draw .. I’m just wondering for people saying there won’t be a draw , how does a maintenance starting and ending in the early hours of Tuesday affect a draw that takes place midday Wednesday?
Ignore them. They just wanted to create panic in the forum and enjoy watching others crying....

Yes I selected all Provinces except for Atlantic provinces
Do you mean you checked all boxes individually or checked All Provinces option? My NOC code is in demand for few Provinces but I haven’t got any NOI yet. I am at 455 and got CLB 10 in IELTS in my first attempt. My age is 32. I can’t do anything specific as of now instead of waiting for pnp

Same here. Sitting at 453 maxed out and there is nothing I can do except waiting.

Don't just sit and wait. I want to encourage you to learn French. I was having crs 425. Ielts maxed out. Age 38. Learnt French for 6mknths and passed TEF. Now crs is 470. Not an easy thing to do but it's certainly rewarding.
How did you get started with it? Which course ? What classes?

That’s inspirational. I reside In dubai and have a 2 year old daughter. My parents don’t live here. My husband is working. So I don’t have a possibility of joining any classes. I left my job when I had a baby. So it’s hard to manage everything here. Although I can try to get materials online and YouTube might help too. I ll give it a try on my own

Guys I need one help, I am expecting my wife's IELTS result in couple of hours and it will help us in increasing the CRS score. This result be online. I know how to generate TRF number but how do I enter result date in EE profile because result date on TRF is usually not the same as online result date.

and if the date does not match will there be any issue in future?
