Analysis of current EE draw

A minor decease of one point seen in both qualifying marks (483 points) and number of invitations (762) compared to last draw. So the current draw is almost same to last draw in terms of numbers and figures. It is the third consecutive time number of invites remained below one thousand mark this year. It may be a planned strategy by IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada) to pick the candidates with higher CRS Score first and reduce the cut off score at the end of year to meet the immigration target for 2016. Hence, the candidates with qualifying marks close to 450 points need to remain positive for upcoming draws.
