By Rajneesh Kumar Posted 12, Nov 2020

Second Express Entry Draw of November 2020 - Can CRS score drop below 470 mark The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) raised the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement to 478 points in the last express entry draw held on November 5, 2020.

The cut off was showing the falling trend until the last draw as the qualifying marks to get the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada PR were hovering around the 471 mark, however, the last EE draw changed the whole picture.

Candidates Expecting the fall in the CRS score

The candidates eagerly waiting for the Invitation to Apply (ITA) since long are now expecting the fall in the CRS score requirement from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in the upcoming express entry draws.

CRS Score trend in last 5 Express Entry Draw

The points requirement have never went below the 470 mark in the year 2020 and hence, the applicants with CRS score in 460s are waiting for the ITA throughout the year.

Now, considering the fortnightly draw opening trend of Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), three more draws will open this year. It will be interesting to see whether the cut off drop below 470 points or not in these remaining draws.

What are the possibility of cut off dropping below 470?

The IRCC has invited 87,350 candidates so far until 5th November draw and looking at the trend of invitations being issued in every draw; the IRCC is just one draw away from achieving its invitation target for the year, i.e. 91,800. Hence, considering this entire factor, it is unlikely that the IRCC will drop the cut off by 8-9 points despite achieving the annual target for Invitations to Apply (ITAs). However, next year the some fall in the point's requirement is possible. Meanwhile, as an applicant of Canada PR visa, you must look out for alternate options, i.e. Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
