hi,

 I’m working as a graphic designer (9 years of experience) in india (kerala). but didn’t  have degree for that.(only had a 6 month certificate in Graphic designing which is not a approved university certificate)  I did a Degree in BA English(Distance Education) and also had a 2 year diploma(ITC)(Civil Engineering) certificate. I didn’t try IELTS yet. If I’m Scored well in IELTS, R-7.5,L-8,W-7.5,S-7(just imagine!)

is there any chance for me to get invited if Applied through Express Entry as a Federal skilled worker (Graphic designer NOC:5241-B)???

@sobin Whether or not you get an invite depends on more factors than what you have shared. What is your age? Have you got ECA done yet? What does your ECA report state?

To start with, first check if you have 67 points on the selection grid which is required to be eligible under FSW -> Canada Points Calculator

If you have it, then check your CRS Score assuming you get the above IELTS results -> CRS Calculator

If you have 67 points on the selection grid and above 470 points CRS score, then there is surely a realistic chance of an invite.

But be honest when evaluating yourself. Have you got the ECA done for your education? It looks like you may have what is called "Two Degrees Diplomas or Certificate" but unless you get the ECA and IELTS results, all the calculations are just possible projections.

Hi @sobin I would suggest that you start the ECA process as it is time consuming and your age will work against you if you wait for 2 years. Hope you are aware that 5 points will be deducted from CRS for every birthday and your Selection Factor points also decreases with every birthday. With every passing year, you will need to do something more to compensate the loss of points. A Masters and CLB 10 in IELTS (8777) can help you offset some loss of points. There is also a IELTS to CLB converter if you want to play around and check various scores and its CLB equivalent.

All the best!
