Impact of spouse's IELTS score on overall CRS points


#1

Folks,

I notice that my spouse’s (secondary applicant) IELTS score has little weight age on the overall CRS score. I have arrived at this conclusion by playing around with the CRS calculator on the CIC page (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/crs-tool.asp).

Having read the blogs here I know that 7.0 is the minimum score the primary applicant needs to have in each of the segments. Is there a minimum score requirement for the secondary applicant as well?

Thanks

There is no minimum score for your spouse in your application, but you can get additional points if they have stronger language scores.
