What is a “CRS”?
This is what gives each applicant a clearer picture of their stance in the Express Entry System. CRS score is calculated with various factors. Age, Education, Work Experience, language proficiency, Job offer and relative. There are more factors which are applicable to different situations. A total of 1200 CRS points are available out of which the first 600 are for Core and the rest 600 additional points are for Canadian Education, Canadian Work Experience, Sibling living in Canada, Job Offer and PNP nomination.
What is a “CRS round of invitation”?
IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) conducts biweekly invitation rounds during which a CRS number is released and those applicants who have CRS greater than or equal to gets invitations to apply for Permanent Resident Application. The Invitation rounds are conducted throughout the year. Generally, it’s every second of Wednesday. However, I have seen various invitation rounds conducted on Mondays as well. I call them “Surprise rounds” also known as Back-to-Back invitation rounds
It’s funny though many applicants call this process as a DRAW. However, this is not the correct word to define since in a draw, only Lucky applicants get invitations while in “Round of Invitations” those applicants who have a higher score will be invited and every applicant is already aware of CRS beforehand.
