Eligibility for the Express Entry is based on a 67-points scale, assessed on the basis of age, education, experience and language ability.
The candidate loses 5 points every year beyond 30 years.
The candidate needs to take the approved language tests in English or French and score the points as required by their program. The language levels are evaluated byCanadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) for English and by Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadien (NCLC) for French. The results are valid for 2 years.
A score of 6 is required in each aspect to be eligible, however 8777 (LRWS) is very famous as the ‘magic score’, that makes it easier for the candidate to qualify.
3. Education credential assessment report (ECA):
It is the provision of a Canadian equivalent degree assessment of the candidate’s native country education. It is done by multiple organisations.
After providing for the above two, you become eligible to enter in to the Express Entry pool. The next step is to punch in your basic credentials like age, education, qualification, experience, language test score, your ECA. The system then automatically evaluates the score via the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and gives you a rank.
