Mr. Deep patel 
Getting a Canada Visa with 5 bands from Gujarat, India, was a dream for me. I visited lots of consultants here in Gujarat, but everyone suggested CLB9 (7,7,7 and L-8). Cracking this score was an impossible mission, but fortunately, I met an Aptech visa, and finally, I got a Saskatchewan PNP nomination. thanks aptech visa
