I was hoping to get some advice on whether I should give it a try with the score I have, I have taken the IELTS exam a few times and my listening score (8) is below the top bracket (8.5 – 9). 471 is the estimated score I see on the https://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/crs-tool.asp website.
I know there is increasing competition to get the invitation, but does anyone know if 471 is reasonably high to give it a try? or do you absolutely recommend taking the IELTS exam again and up my score by 3. (I believe if I max out on the IELTS the score I will get is 474).
Any help would be appreciated.
