Analysis of Express Entry Draw no.10 of 2016

The qualifying marks or CRS score requirement in the current draw have drastically increased to 534 points, which may surprise the applicants expecting the qualifying marks to decrease in this draw. As a result of increased CRS score requirement, only 799 candidates are selected for the issuance of invitation for PR.

It was quite unlikely that many candidates (i.e. beyond 1000) will have CRS score of 534 points. Hence, the no. of invitations has also decreased in this draw compared to last draw. It also signifies that number of high CRS Score (above 500) candidates have also increased in the EE system.

What should you do as an Express Entry Applicant with low CRS score?

Well, if you have low CRS score i.e. around 400 points or more, and you are disappointed to see the cut off marks in the recent draws, you must look out for the pathways to get your ITA. You need to find ways to enhance your CRS score to become eligible for Express Entry ITA. To make this happen, take the services of a reliable immigration consultant for Canada.
