Key features of the current EE draw
The main surprise of the present Express Entry Draw was the record number of candidates (i.e. 3,900) invited this year. It's the highest number of Invitations issued in any single express entry draw in the year 2018. However, the even more surprising facts is the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) didn't require to make any deduction in the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score requirement to invite highest number of candidates this year.
The qualifying marks remained unchanged at 440 mark. This is the third time in a row, IRCC has kept the cut off marks as same. And result in terms of invited candidates was significant (above 3700 mark) all three times. The IRCC has decided the stop mark for the CRS score requirement for all express entry draws this year. This is the reason that it never went below the 440 mark this year, whereas last year it went down to as low as 413 CRS Points.
However, considering the high immigration target of IRCC for next three years, experts are expecting the cut off marks to decrease in the upcoming express entry draws this year.
