Latest Changes in IELTS score for Canadian Immigration

Canada is very keen to welcome immigrants from all over the world. Canadian government also knows about the difficulties of future applicants which they are facing due to a high IELTS band requirement for additional points of Canadian Immigration.

Due to these difficulties faced by the majority of the people over the world, Canadian government has very kindly reduced the IELTS score requirement for Canadian Immigration Points. CIC has now decrease the IELTS band requirement criteria for Canada Skilled worker Immigration points.

Congratulations to all!!!

Canada has reduced minimum IELTS score requirement for 4 points of Immigration


As CIC has decreased the minimum IELTS band score from 7 band to 6.5 band to obtain four points for Immigrate to Canada in Skilled Worker Category. Now you can obtain 4 points for one module of IELTS if you score 6.5 band as compared to old system which required at lease 7 Band in IELTS to obtain four points in a specific module of IELTS. Only listening module gained the IELST score instead of reduction. i.e. 7.5, which was 7 previously.
Now you can get 16 points for immigration by having the following minimum band in IELTS
Writing: 6.5 Band
Reading: 6.5 Band
Speaking: 6.5 Band
Listening: 7.5 Band

Following table give the full details:
Enjoy your Canadian Immigration.

One thing to remember that that the correct ancronym of International Language Testing System is IELTS but sometimes people mispell it ielets, ilts, iltes, ilets, elts, eilts, iltis or ielst. So please remember the correct acncronym i.e. IELTS

Hello J,
Your IELTS score as per new criteria is as under

Reading = 6.5 = 4 Points
Listening = 6.5 = 2 Points
Speaking = 7 = 4 Points
Writing = 7 = 4 points

So ur total score in IELTS for canada Immigration is 4+2+4+4 = 14

Hi Anonymous,
Yes, of course, you have to apply for IELTS test again after its expiry.
From which CHC you have applied for Immigration?

Sherie said...

Hi,
My question is not related to IELTS. It is related to Processing centre.
I am UAE resident and Pakistani National. I applied for canadian PR, got my file # and document requirement letter. However, my problem is that after I will submit all my documents I may have to leave UAE. My question is that:

1- If my application is processed further, and a medical test is required, Can I take that test in my home country (from Approved doctors/hospitals)

2- If i am given PR, would i be personally required to visit Abu Dhabi Canadian High commission or the documents would be sent to me only and i can fly to canada?

3- If because of any reason, I send the required docs after the deadline...What impact can it have on my profile.... i am asking this coz of IELTS score.. If i couldn't get enough marks in IELTS, i would have to re-take the test and it may delay sending IELTS test scores.

My email ID is swattoo@hotamil.com

Hi,
I have the following questions:

I am a UAE resident & Pakistani National. I applied for canadian PR, got my file # & document requirement letter. I'll be sending all the required docs within a months time hopefully. My problem is that I may go back to my home country after that. so my question is

1- If my application is processed further & medical test result is required, can i take that test in Pakistan with an approved doctor/hospital? Or only a UAE medical test report would work?

2- If I am offered PR, would I be required to pesonally visit Canadian high Commission in Abu Dhabi for other formalities or I would only get some papers by post and I can fly to Canada?

3- Wht if i get less marks in IELTS than required and have to take IELTS again? In that case i'll send the documents late (After the deadline) would that effect the application.. If yes,In what way?

Immig- said...

Dear Sherie,
1. You can take medical test in your home country.
2. Contact CHC Dubai for your second question.
3. Send all documents including current IELTS score in time. You may add a request letter that you are improving your IELTS score and will provide to them later on.

Immig- said...

Dear Sherie,
2. There is an option that CHC will send you your documents by post. Please contact your CHC in order to get accurate information.

The first one is about the second official languae French, how is that rated, do we have to give any particular exam in order to score points for French or will we be tested during the interview about our french eligibility. Second question is that I have read in several places that job requirements are atleast 1 year continuous full time or equivalent part time. What does equivalent part time mean? It means approx. 2 yrs part time?? Please let me know. Thanks

Dear Sir :

L = 7.5

my score is 16 ponts on the new band , and 12 points on the old band.

Do i follow the new band score or the old band score?

This is a very critical issue because if i score 16 according to the new band , my total will be 67 , and if i score 12 points on the old band my total will be 63 (ineligible)!!

I got a file number BEFORE feb 2008,particularly on november 2007 But I took my IELTS exam on the 27th of june 2009!!

Do i fall under the old band scoring system since i got a file number on NOV 2007?
OR
Do i fall under the new band scoring system , since i took my IELTS test on JUNE 2009?

Opinions i read on here are very contradicting about this issue.

Dear comrade :

My name is Abdallah

L = 7.5
S = 7
R = 6.5
W = 6.5

my score is 16 ponts on the new band , and 12 points on the old band.

Do i follow the new band score or the old band score?

This is a very critical issue because if i score 16 according to the new band , my total will be 67 , and if i score 12 points on the old band my total will be 63 (ineligible)!!

I got a file number BEFORE feb 2008,particularly on november 2007 But I took my IELTS exam on the 27th of june 2009!!

Do i fall under the old band scoring system since i got a file number on NOV 2007?
OR
Do i fall under the new band scoring system , since i took my IELTS test on JUNE 2009?

....Abdallah...

I took Academic IELTS and obtained 12 point acoording to new scoring system. Am I able to apply for Immigration with Academic? Is CIC clearly specify that CIC will not count academic IELTS?

Comrade said...

Dear Abdullah,
You will get the points as per criteria of the instance of your immigration i.e. Old band score system

Comrade said...

Yea Anonynous,
CIC clearly specified that IELTS Academic will not be acceptable for Immigration purpose. If someone is saying you so than he is deceiving you.
Take IELTS General again

Dear Comrade

This is Abdallah again

according to the OP 6 manual on the CIC website :

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resources/manuals/op/op06-eng.pdf

On page 26 it says that :

"Note: Visa officers should also assess applications and test reports which pre-date November 28, 2008, against the above correlation table if it is to the applicants advantage, i.e., resulting in more points for language proficiency."

Can you please help me to clarify in consideration to my IELTS results

whats the IELTS score required for academic test..Is individual module score matters???

you can get 16 points for language if you get 7.5 Band in L, 6.5 in R, 6.5 in W & 6.5 in S. But as you said you are scoring 57 total points so you are required only 10 points to get the required points i.e. 67.
