In the latest express Entry round conducted on July 25, 2018. 3750 applicants were invited to apply with a Comprehensive Ranking System Score of 441.
The current CRS score is one point lower than the last invitation round score of 442 conducted on July 11, 2018. The reason behind score deduction could be attributed to the back- to-back draws of 3,750 ITAS in a 14-day period.
The tie-break up rule was applied for this draw that means all the candidates with a CRS score of 441 and above who submitted their profile before December 31, 2017 at 12:14:21 UTC will receive an ITA in this invitation round.
This is a fourth consecutive draw issued to 3750 applicants and brings the total number of invitations issued to 7500 applicants in July 2018. This is by far the largest number of ITAs issued in a month since the introduction of Express Entry in 2015 and follows a record-setting month of June, which also saw 7500 ITAs issued.
However, the number of invitations will increase or decrease is yet to be seen, if IRCC does resort to larger draws or more frequent draws, there is strong possibility of CRS falling down.
Draw size number of 3750 is now well-established trend in 2018 that has seen draw sizes gradually increased over the course of the year.
This year saw two draws of 2750 ITAs each in January, followed by four draws of 3000ITAs each in February and March and four draws of 3500 ITAs each in April and May. The draw size then increased to 3,750 in the first June draw, held on June 13 and has been constant since then.
