If a group, such as "The canada thread" is opened for people interested in Canada and we are going against a major pathway to d realization of such dream, then to me, that's bizarre.

More than 30 ielts takers has contacted me b'cos of my POST yesterday and they are in class already.

Only to find out it has been pulled down.......

I don't do my things for show offs but some1 has almost discouraged me from preaching my IELTS gospel. Which i considered my own little way of giving back to this beautiful community.

It's rather painful and sad.

Good morning everyone and thanks for all the words of encouragement, you guys are too awesome. So I spent the whole of yesterday and night thinking and I have questions:

What are the chances of getting a job in Canada while in the pool?

Getting perfect scores in IELTS will only take my CRS score to 441 from the present 435. I really don't think 441 is good enough considering the cut-off point for the last draw and spending another 75k and time to write IELTS again in March for just 6 more points doesn't look like the best move to me. Getting a job will get my score up to 485.

What do you guys think? Get in the pool first and try to get a job or try get my score up to 441?

Thanks so much guys

Hey Chief. I suggest you get into the pool ASAP and take advantage of the tie-breaking rule. 441 is quite a good score and is highly likely to fetch you ITA in subsequent draws. While you're in the pool, you can try to get a job and prepare for the IELTS.
"Just 6 more points?" 1 point matters a lot. I once had 433 in 2017 and I missed a draw (434 at the time) by just 1 point. I wanted to die! Since then, the CRS draw has not dropped as low as 436 sef. Good luck.

Edited....

I agree with @ontarioissauga. The PNP is another route to consider. Try do some research on it.

Hi Guys,

It's PPR for me!!!!!!!!!! Below is my timeline.

Decision to Relocate: June 2018
IELTS: 30th June. L9 R9 S8 W8
ECA: WES. Registered 11th June received ECA 7th August. Entered the pool same day.
ITA: 8th August. CRS 445
AOR: 24th August
PPR: 19th February
Family of 2 (child and parent)

VO: Accra. I believe my file was transferred late September. When I found out my application was at AVO I was so disheartened ehn. I tried to find information online about this VO and all I could see were people who submitted their passports to Accra discussing timelines. It wasn't until that petition was raised that I realised there was a whatsapp group. By then, I had resigned my fate to a lengthy processing and didn't bother to join.
No ADR.

Biometrics/Medical passed: Don't remember but completed biometrics 24th September.

Medical was Prime PH on the last day they opened shop for Canadian PR medicals.
Congratulations!
Thanks for the detailed PPR gist and for opening the gate for fellow 24th August AOR.
AVO seems to be catching up now. Ottawa is just turnioninown

I believe anybody has the right to change his/her environment at any point in life. I might have few questions tho...

Relocating via investment? or through FSW
Is the person a businessman/woman Or working for him to earn that amount.
One can't just decide here as there questions that one should asked.

If I'm in business and earning that amount....I could just visit Canada to catch some cold small, meanwhile investing my money in my fatherland.

Amazing! Congrats!!!!

EmeraldConsults:
It has began in praise!

Wrote IELTS (BC) for the first time on 9th February.

Result: LRSW - 9,9,8.5,7

Prepared for about 1month.

LISTENING: I really didn't use any video. I practised mainly with the Cambridge materials. I discovered I had major challenge with the MCQ questions, so I learnt to:
-focus more
-get involved in the discussion by creating a mental picture and this helped my concentration
-practice more and more.
Funny enough, I still scored below 36 a number of time during the exam week.

READING: I started with one very difficult material I downloaded from pdf drive. It really scared me cos I couldn't get above 34, my average was 30. When I finally got the Cambridge material, I was getting 38, 39 & 40. My main challenge here was the T, F, NG questions.
-it is TRUE: if the statement can be FOUND (without assumption) in the passage
-it is FALSE: if the statement is COMPLETELY opposite to what's in the passage
-it is NOT GIVEN: if there's no info at all about the statement in the passage
NB: Don't assume anything based on previous knowledge, it's all about the given passage.

SPEAKING: I really didn't do much preparation here cos I'm naturally as chatty person, I can make up stories easily. I got some questions from IELTSLiz website and watched her videos. Practised the difficult ones with a friend some days before the test. On the test day, I just flowed with the guy as a friend. He practically had to cut me short on almost all questions.

READING: Hmmmmmm... na here my wahala & nightmare deyyyy. I dreaded the writing when I was seeing the failure rate. Long story short, I used Jay's, Chris Pell 5-day challenge & IELTS UP videos (all from YouTube)... and they helped to reduce my fear. Then @wasseynewest (God bless you sir!) came to the rescue my adding me to a free WhatsApp group for writing and the tutor was quite good with criticising my writing especially task 2.

Still awaiting ECA though, CRS is 456

It will surely end in praise...!

Please o, what documents do I need to start gathering to make my submission fast?

Thinking of FSW.

The earning of 36m is net salary from Current job.
