    4.What to do if the CRS score is low?

The Express Entry System provides a pool of candidates for Canada’s permanent immigration. Every applicant is scored and is given a rank based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).

Even after entering the pool, you will have every chance to improve your CRS score, which is possible through additional training, work experience, or retaking the language test. 

Improve your language score:
This is one of the simplest and easiest ways to increase your CRS score. 

You can earn a maximum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level as CLB 9. In case you have a low score, then there is always a chance of improving your potential. 

Also, there is a scope for getting additional points. If you can speak French and you have great French language skills, then you are eligible for getting 50 additional CRS points under Express Entry System for Canada’s immigration.

If you have proficiency in English and French, also get an additional point of 50, i.e., up from the previous 30. 

If the candidates do not possess English language skills but have a piece of proven knowledge of French aptitude skills, they will receive an additional 25 points from the government. Previously, this score was listed as only 15 bonus points.

Improve the years of work experience:
 If you are an applicant applying for a Canadian visa from outside the country and have less than three years of work experience, then here you have a scope to improve your work experience for a year or two by adding additional skill points for your CRS score Calculator. 

If at all you are a candidate working in Canada on a temporary work permit, then you can claim more CRS points by adding at least five years of Canadian work experience. 

While applying for or creating an Express Entry profile, don’t forget to mention that you are still employed in Canada, which will automatically increase your CRS score.

Find a job offer in Canada: 
Find a job offer before moving to Canada for an easy process of your application, but yet it is important to remember that it should satisfy the specific conditions given by the federal system to claim the points. The job opportunity you get must be full-time from an authorized Canadian employer; this will give 200 points up to your score. 
Score additional points for educational qualification:

Though this is a long-term process, it can help you improve your CRS score Calculator effectively. The higher the degree is, you will be able to score more on skills transferability points.

Apply through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP): 

If you are applying for a permanent residence under the provincial nominee program, you will get 600 additional points for the express entry profile. Then you can send an invitation for PR through a specific PNP.  

Apply with your spouse:

If you are applying for the visa along with your spouse, then there are chances to get bonus points for both. Your partner or spouse’s language proficiency skills will be worth 20 points. If your spouse has Canadian work experience, then you can get ten more points in each category. On the whole, it can go up to 40 points high in your CRS score.
