What a sad forum! I stumbled across this group by chance and I tuned-in to learn from experienced people about the trends; however, 90% of posts are pure negative predictions. While the eclecticism is justified, given the high scores, it doesn't mean that we only have to spread negative vibes. Me sitting @ 458, and in February it will be 466 could not be more comfortable. And yes, I have spent well over 35 k USD and a year of my life to get this score, but bitching about it openly will not change anything.

Please do not view this post in a negative way, I am just trying to inform you, good people, that crying and revolting will only make you feel miserable and will not change anything.
I think for some people, they need to articulate their disappointment and validate their assumptions as a way to get closure and possibly move on if this option is unfortunately no longer viable due to high cutoff scores. Also by sharing their negative assumptions, they can get correction from others and counterbalance their views in case they misunderstood the trend or over estimated the negative trend score so as not to give up too early if they still have a chance

Let us be positive and realistic rather than being depressed.
I'm at 464 and I can say that by Jan 6 or 8, the score can either go up above even 470 or might be close to 466. If the cut off is somewhere in the 466s, then we can be rest assured that the cut off will come down soon.
But either ways, the cut off for sure is set to come down to at least to 460 or at the lowest 456s in the coming days.
So stop being depressed and be happy.
But yes, have a solid back-up plan too.
Anything can happen any time and so is a miracle

Apologies for the change of topic here.
I have completed my 1 year Post graduate certificate. However, my university does not provide any Transcripts.
Can somebody guide what should I do to get this certificate evaluated if they are not providing Transcript. Is there any way that i can follow with the Certificate I receive.

Many Thanks..

Send the whole problem to WES asking for advice, however, I don't think they will let you bypass with the certificate only, had similar situation but with the transcript and no certificate and they got me on pending

That's true. Even going by the weightage of total 16000 candidates in [451-600}, I feel that more than 80% would be below 464.

Yes, Majority of them are in 450s and below 465 for sure
But yes, it also symbolises that the competition is becoming much more more strong.
Simply, need to do whatever it takes to go the safe score of 465 to possibly secure an ITA by Jan end or Feb
If not, may have to regret later

Haha I am stuck at 464 too with CLB 9. Not sure what to do next. CLB 10 seems like a waste of money to me, but then I loose 5 points too in April

I currently have 469 now. By Feb, I will be thrown to 464. But above 464 could certainly be a safe score.
Better learn French. 3 months time is actually possible to get a decent grade in French

If I were you, I'd take several computer-based IELTS in a row to achieve CLB10 in all the four sections so that I could count on an invitation in Jan. 2020 when there'll be probably three draws, including back-to-back draw.

I was 432 and waiting for WES to upgrade my report with second bachelor degree. My report was completed on October 15th and increased my points to 464. I was waiting for the draw next day, on October 16th but CIC skipped the draw and I was upset because I could have received iTA on October 2nd if WES did not delay my report. The next draw after 4 weeks jumped to 475 on October 30th. I got down to 459 on November 26th and now feeling hopeless.

Me and my wife can retake the IELTS and jump to 470 maximum. Even at 470, I am not sure we will receive ITA very soon.

My university sent wrong documents to WES in June and WES required additional documents. The report should have been completed in August and I got ITA.... :(

Very sad story. Damn University, Damn WES

Chill bro. I know the amount of hard work you invested in this. I too know the pain in rewriting IELTS but yes, if time is really bad, everything will screw us up. Keep trying. If IELTS is the only source, write that godamnn exam.
And do not worry, score is well set to come down in the coming days

Trust your timing. We are exactly where we are supposed to be in life.We all have a story to be told and mine is no less pathetic. I aced IELTS after 4 attempts in a year on 11th Oct which secured me a score of 465. Made profile on 15th and was damn sure of receiving ITA on 16th. However, CIC had different plans and FST Kicked in and the score till now hasn't dropped below 469. Anything above 465 is safe in my opinion.
