Is your CRS Score good enough to get ITA this year?

Well, this is not an easy question to answer for sure. However, we can analyze the express entry draw trends to guess the upcoming IRCC draw results and hence, your chances of your receiving ITA this year.

The Express Entry draw results this year had been quite volatile this year. Though, the qualifying marks remained higher side most of the time throughout the year.

Positive trend observed in last few EE Draws

After April, 2016, the qualifying marks for express entry draws have remained above 480 points most of the time till the last EE Draw (October 19, 2016). Though the declining pattern was visible in last few draw, however the draw on October 19th, 2016 (22nd draw of 2016) broke all the past records and issued 1804 PR invitations to the selected applicants, which was highest number of invites ever.

What is your CRS score? And what is probability of getting ITA with the same?

Well, based on your CRS score, lets try to predict your chances of getting ITA this year.

CRS Score between- 465-480

CRS score between- 450-464

If your CRS Score is between 450-464, your chances of getting ITA in 2016 are thin, however, you should remain positive for the year 2017, as qualifying marks may come down to this range next year. Though, there is no guarantee of the same. Meanwhile, you may also look to improve your profile score by gaining more experience, adding qualification, or increasing language proficiency level.

CRS score below 450
