CIC Update for you

We call this Express Entry 101. CIC has just issued its 101’st draw with a score of 445 and has invited close to 3,900 applicants from the pool. It was expected and was listed before in our previous articles posted. The draw is in line with the trends and comes as a disappointment to people who are sitting on scores close to 440 hoping for these scores to fall down.

However, as a point to ponder about, CIC will keep doing draws like this since the pool is extremely dynamic. We know many applicants, thousands of them are trying to increase their scores using provincial nominations, IELTS test and every  other method possible to increase the scores and get above this level. If you are sitting at 430-440 bracket and merely hoping for scores to come low, OOPNP predicts that you will be sitting for  very long time. We will keep updating you with any CIC update in future.
