Express Entry Draw as on 8th August 2018
As per the latest Express Entry Draw held on 8th August 2018, issued a total of 3,750 Invitations to Apply and the CRS cut-off has come out to be 440.
This latest cut-off of 440 is the lowest of the year 2018.
This time also the tie-breaker rule was applied and was January 31, 2018, at 00:06:40 UTC. This means that all candidates with a CRS score above 440, as well as those candidates with scores of 440 who submitted their profile before this specified date and time, received an ITA in this invitation round.
This draw continued the trend of issuing an Invitation of size 3,750 started on June 13. IRCC by now has issued a total number of 50,950 ITA in 2018.
Whether draw sizes will increase above 3,750 remains to be seen. If IRCC conducts larger draws or more frequent draws, this can also result in a decrease of the cut-off CRS score.
