I think we need to make peace with the fact that this additional points for Canada degree holders is on its way and move on.

There is no way that candidates are going to have points added to their profile only to be taken away. I would be livid if it were to happen to me. Cannot believe they can make such a potentially costly technical glitch.

See what it means for your prospects and move on
Just to clarify.. Points were not added to the profiles only the calculator... And if these additional points do materialize, the process should be called express conversion rather than express entry...

any helpful tips you wanna quote, I am collecting docs for my submission.
Just regarding the payment. Please make sure your amount is approx 15k higher than the PR fees as there are some taxes involved and my first debit card transaction got declined due to this though I had 5k extra. Also, enable international transaction to pay using a debit card. Also, after a payment declines even if you have extra amount you cannot process it within two hours. I finally did my payment using ICICI debit card after 4 hours of the declined payment.

Good day everyone, it was quite a long read. I never believed Canada will give additional points to CEC guys because trust me, it is not necessary and secondly they can not meet their target with that. What do I mean by their target, Canada is concerned about increasing her population and inviting just inland people(because if CEC point is increased, they will be the ones majorly invited) then the population will remain stagnant and even reduce. They depend fully on outlanders to increase their population. If points are to be increased, it should be points for outlanders..
Cheer up buddies, nothing is happening

Hi all,
I hope there will be a draw coming Wednesday, wat do you all think about it's possibility? Besides that does anyone has any guess on the score to expect??? I feel there will be a reduction in cut-off scores now since there is no actual increase in points for Canadian education. I would like you all to post your valuable opinion.

Let's just wait a few more days until Wednesday... All the speculations have been too much for us..

Most of the CEC candidates are also immigrants albeit temporary. Canada will be just fine if they let them remain.

I believe they are counted during census and contribute to the 37M population. If they are OK with their underpopulation situation, trust me there will be no need for EE. Just imagine what happened to their economy without the normal influx of outlanders. They depend more on outlanders. They can not continue to favor inland guys are the detriment of outlanders because it will become an enclosed entity and there will be no change either in their population or economy as no immigrant is coming from the outside

Unfortuantely I don't think IRCC sees it that way. They think that now outsiders will have to come through the route of canadian education first. So going forward they continue to get their influx of people from outside. but those who want to come to Canada are now forced to opt for Canadian education first. This way, they get the same number of people immigrating, but getting a boost to Canada's education industry, as that has now become the gateway to express entry due to higher points requirments. Basically the effect is rerouting outsider traffic to Canada through the Canadian educational institutions.

I see the weight in both thoughts discussed above. In my opinion, they need to have a balanced approach between CEC and FSW. Point change can demotivate FSWs so much that it might lead to people not seeing Canada as a potential destination anymore which is the backbone for Canadian economy

We might see more CEC draws but point change is not happening.

Can someone please help me understand how the CEC scores were so low.. a Canadian bachelor's with 1 year Canadian experience and 8777 IELTS gets 462 whereas the draw for CEC had a cutoff of 430-450... And that's without the extra points..

From what I have seen Many CEC candidates don't have 8777 in IELTS
