This will be an ongoing thread I will try to put in as much info as possible here. kindly bear with me for some time.
I will break up this series into 4 stages
Stage2:- EE Creation
Stage3:- Post ITA
Stage4:- CoPR and Landing
Step 1 :- Calculate your CRS score. Anything more than 440 is good as the current cutoff is hovering around this range CRS CALCULATOR LINK
Step 2:- If you are not sure how your degree is evaluated. Use this tool to figure out your degree equivalency LINK for Degree Equivalency
Step 3:- Select the right NOC LINK TO NOC
Step 4:- Start Sourcing your Degree Certificates and transcripts from India and USA as it may take anywhere from 2-6 weeks. If you have done masters from USA ( full time 2 years ) don’t bother to source in your bachelor’s degree from India. The USA masters degree is good enough to establish your Canadian equivalency of Masters degree
Step 5:- Create a WES account and get the reference number. If you are asking your university to directly send it to WES please ask them to mention the reference number along with the address. WES process works like this. Once they receive the documents 5 days to verify if they have all the documents. and then 20 days to provide you with the results. So plan to have at least one calendar month for the WES results to come through. If you are sourcing degree certificates from India the total time from sourcing documents from university to WES evaluation is anywhere between 60-90 days.
Step 6:- Book your IELTS General exam. Min required score is R7,W7,S7,L8. IELTS will take 13-15 calendar days after you write your exam to give you the results. you can refer to this link for more details
Note:- WES evaluation is the critical path here. Any delay in WES evaluation will delay the creation of EE profile.
