Analysis of Latest Express Entry draw

The IRCC has invited total 18,700 candidates this year in overall 5 draws till the latest draw on 4th March. This number is way ahead of the last year's invitation issued at the same time, i.e. 14,500. The CRS score requirement or cut off has also been raised marginally by just 1 point (i.e. 471) by IRCC this time around. The CRS score requirement has been hovering around 470 mark this year, however, interestingly, the IRCC is able to invite close to or above 3400-4000 invites in almost every draw.

CRS Score Requirement Trend in 2020

Although, higher number of invites is a good sign, however, the applicants must have been expecting a little more reduction in the qualifying marks for receiving the ITA (Invitation to Apply) from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada).

If you have not been getting the ITA since long, you may apply in a Provincial Nominee Program, which can help increase your total CRS score and subsequently, you can get the invitation.
