Score Prediction –

The problem in recent draws was this score bracket – 431-440 9,181

No matter what happens, this bracket keeps on growing at a much faster pace than expected  and is not allowing scores to go down at any point. The 100th draw was declared with the following sc0re –

Federal Skilled Trades

Number of invitations issued: 400

Rank required to be invited to apply: 400th or above

Date and time of round: September 24, 2018 at 05:34:21 UTC

CRS score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 284

Tie-breaking rule: February 18, 2018 at 12:31:16 UTC

With people loosing points over their birthdays, everyone is trying to do whatever they can to increase their points and somehow land in this point bracket of 440, which is not expected to come down anytime soon.

The next CIC draw 101 is expected on 10th October 2018 and it is expected that the scores will not drop below 440. OOPNP experts predict score of 437-440 with close to 3700-4000 invitations.

However the pool is so dynamic that this information will get outdated soon with IELTS scheduled in multiple places. Alternately, we can expect the draw to be done on October 3rd and another to follow on October 10th. Whether it happens, remains to be seen.

We will keep you posted about this as we get more information.
