Prediction for FSW category draw

The Express Entry- Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) category candidates are eagerly waiting for an all-program draw this year. However, it is likely to happen soon, considering the drop in the CRS score requirement for both CEC and PNP category draws.

The cut off dropped to just 75 CRS points in the previous draw for Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Moreover, the Cut-off is only 82 points in the current draw, excluding 600 extra points for provincial nomination. Hence, if you are an FSW category candidate, keep your hopes high for the upcoming EE draws this year.
