What makes people think that people between 471 to 480 are drastically reduced? Can someone shed some light?

Even 471 n 472 have to wait till november in order to get an ita if rotating draws continue

After the last draw 4 aug,approx 1350 candidates have been added only in the range of 471-480 ..in 15 days 1500 so in a month it surely doubles up

So again the sep draw will be around 476 only

Its very difficult even with a score of 471 to get an invite .

I believe rotating draws should be a thing but I don’t think it will be there post pandemic.

Anyone who is thinking about coming to Canada without at least an undergrad degree for PR purposes should reconsider. 470 seems to be the new normal for express entry. This score would be really difficult for most international students without prior experience so I would suggest to complete an undergrad before going to Canada to gain PR.

I dont agree with this. U are forgetting the amount of PNP and CEC's that have high scores and get taken off even when only a CEC draw takes place. So, even its a CEC draw tomorrow - a lot of high scoring candidates will again be taken out of the pool. Its not easy for someone to score above 470 (especially given that IELTS have been closed, WES suspended for months, and plenty of other reasons). Even with a one month gap, scores still went down from 478 to 476 for FSW because CEC and PNP were still taking place and people were getting out of the pool as well.

Currently there are around 4300 people in the range of 471-480
If a cec draw happens tomorrow for instance with a score of 445 ,then how many people would be taken out from the range above 470?

Not many will be taken out above the 470 range
Iam being very practical about the calculation
Even i sit at 472 n i see it to come down to this range in november if these rotating draws continue

On aug 4th the no of people in the range of 471-80 were 5065 ,then only the the cut of was 476
Now as of today there are 4300 ,even if 1300 gets added in this range in next 15 days then roughly there will 5600 people as of sep ,so definitely the scores will sit around 476 or 475 thats it
