How can you Improve your CRS Score?

Many applicants often fail to achieve the CRS cut-off score declared in Express Entry draws. For them, it is important to get a detailed understanding of various factors that directly impact their CRS score and identify the ways to improve it.

Let’s discuss a few factors which can help the candidates to improve their CRS score and receive an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian PR Visa:

  • Sibling in Canada

If a candidate has a sibling living in Canada as a Canadian Citizen or a Permanent Resident, their CRS score will increase by 15 points.

 

  • Higher Education

Education is one of the high-contributing factors to your CRS score. The higher education you have, higher the points you get. For example, doctorate-level education helps you get the maximum CRS points for education, which is 140 points.

 

  • Proficiency in the French language

Candidates who have proficiency in French except for English, they get extra points for that. For this, they have to declare French as their Second Official Language and need to share the results of their French language proficiency test to get CRS points for it. An approved French language test needs to be taken for this purpose.

 

  • Retake language test/Improve Language Scores

CRS points are awarded to the candidates who have proven their language proficiency in either of the official languages of Canada – English or French. Candidates can always retake the relevant language test to improve their score, which can directly help them in improving their CRS score.

 

  • Gain more work experience

Under the Skill Transferability factor, extra points are given to candidates with greater work experience. Those applicants who have less than 3 years of work experience, can continue to work to gain more work experience to improve their CRS score.

 

  • Get a Provincial Nomination Certificate

This is one of the best ways to improve your CRS score. Those Express Entry applicants who are able to get a provincial nomination certificate, get extra 600 CRS points. This helps them to improve their chances of getting a Canada PR visa.

 

  • LMIA approved Job-offer

In case an applicant is able to get a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) approved job offer, it will help them to add 50 CRS points to their CRS score.

 

  • Spouse – Primary Applicant

In case, an applicant wants to immigrate with their spouse who has a higher CRS score, they can simply make their spouse the primary applicant which will improve their chances of getting a Canada PR visa.
