May 23rd issued 3500 ITAs with CRS score of 440-the lowest score so far in 2018
This is to inform that The Government of Canada issued a total number of 3,500 ITAs on Wednesday, May 23rd draw. The applicants were invited to apply with a Comprehensive Ranking System cut-off score of 440 points, the lowest score so far in 2018.
This is fourth draw in a row where 3500ITAs have been issued in a single draw. With the constant high number of invitations issued in each draw, there can be a strong possibility of CRS score drop in the near future.
The applicants who submitted their profile before December 30, 2017 are eligible to receive an Invitation to Apply in this invitation round. The candidates with a CRS score above 440 will get ITA.
So far, the total number of ITAs issued in the year 2018 is 31,500. Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada increased the draw sizes in 2018 from 2,750 at the start of the year to 3,000 in February and March to 3,500 since the start of April in each four draws conducted so far.
The increase in the draw sizes to 3,500 has corresponded with a reduction in the CRS cut-off score by six points, from 446 in Aril,2018 to today’s low of 440.
The CRS score drop of even one per cent is a welcome sight and not even a half-way is crossed in 2018 for the admissions. This means that there is still a long way to go to accomplish the admissions target for this year.
