23 July Draw- CRS Score Requirement

In this latest Express Entry draw, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement was 445 points.

There is a slight rise of 14 points in the latest cut off score in comparison to previously held CEC-specific Express Entry draw, which was held on 25th June.

A rise in the number of candidates into the pool after all-program EE draw can be a major reason behind an increase in the CRS score.
