About CRS Score
The CRS score or Comprehensive Ranking System score is assigned on the basis of different factors related to the candidate, such as level of education, age, and work experience and language proficiency. Keep in mind that you cannot be eligible for any of three Express Entry programs just by estimating Canada 67 points. You have to ensure your eligibility to one of these programs in advance by checking out eligibility requirements in each program.
If you don’t have a Canadian degree, your Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) and language test results in order to figure out the actual CRS score. You can still figure out the CRS points if you don’t meet the above requirements to claim the points on other factors.
You can calculate the CRS score on your own using Canada CRS Points Calculator.
Minimum Score You Should Achieve
The IRCC issues an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to the deserving candidates so they can get permanent residency with Express Entry in Canada. To do this, you have to achieve a CRS score which is equal or above the minimum to receive an ITA. A threshold is set to select the applicants for Express Entry visa when their CRS Score is above the limit. A draw is taken on every two weeks on Wednesdays.
How to Increase Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Score?
When you are unable to score enough CRS points, you can consider another immigration option, i.e. Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). You will get a further 600 points when you are selected to get a provincial nomination by the province. This way, you can get ITA automatically in another draw. You can stay in the province when obtaining permanent residence by getting nominated by a province.
