How Can I Improve my Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score?

One of the most popular immigration systems that Canada proclaims is Express Entry System. The candidates with applications are arranged in an express entry pool, with a maintained CRS score.
A comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a score-based system or a tool that awards scores based on a candidate’s age, education, skills, language ability, proficiency either in English or French, work experience (with a job offer in Canada or abroad), and other factors.
The candidate is eligible to gain additional 600 CRS points if he has acquired a provincial nomination certificate under the PNP streams.

How you can Boost your Express Entry CRS Score?

The highlight of the CRS tool is while being in the express entry pool, the candidate rather than waiting for an ITA can simply boost their scores in many ways.

  1. Language Ability
    Rather than applying for a re-test, it’s convenient to maximize the points being in the express entry pool. Language proficiency is an important asset to achieving higher positioning on your CRS ladder. English or French speakers can easily improve their language skills and achieve additional 100 points coupled with 260. Now, these improvements are expected to be in 4 major segments (writing, reading, speaking, and listening)
  2. Boost your Qualifications
    The higher the level of your qualification, the higher the CRS scores you shall expect to get. If you are not qualified from Canada, your educational degrees will be verified through ECA. While having a bachelor’s degree can add up to 170 points, Canadian Experience Class (CEC) applicants gain an edge of exclusive express entry without any ECA. So, rather than waiting for a while, you can evaluate and enhance your qualifications or complete any other educational program
  3. Get a Job offer from Canada
    Canada is the home to immense opportunities, and the country offers life-changing experiences, to begin with. The idea of accepting a work life in Canada can definitely increase your chances to get entry to Canada. Getting a job offer is equal to having 200 points. Moreover, it cogently accelerates the chances of receiving an ITA. Thus, it’s always worth mentioning work experience in the profile in order to boost CRS scores.
  4. Provincial Nomination
    Getting a provincial nomination is all about securing 600 points for the candidate to be at the top of the game. While provinces have different yet dynamic occupations, the candidate needs to stay alert to PNP news, express entry draws, new categories, and timelines. Such an alarming nature of yours can help you to move one step ahead of getting 600 additional points along with ITA.
