For candidates who are struggling to achieve a good CRS score despite having Masters or good IELTS score is the age. Ages between 21 to 29 has an advantage of the express entry program, but if you are over 30 plus, things are difficult in the moving in the queue as the current cutoff/trend is 471.
It is hard to pursue the Canadian dream by waiting in the express entry pool if your score is low. Follow the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) nomination programs to get additional 600 points on satisfying the requirements of PNP programs. The requirements vary between PNP streams. Canadian provinces are issuing nomination certificates to candidates in the Express Entry pool by Express Entry-aligned (‘enhanced’) PNP streams.
