Even I didn't get a CLB 9 and I am a native speaker. I only managed a CLB 8, which for my industry, is more than enough.

Also, age at time of submission into the EE pool plays into your score. I was 32 when I applied and I scored about 427 (i can't remember the exact CRS score) but it was enough to get over the line mainly due to:

1. me having just over a year's worth of Canadian work experience.
2. having relatives.

which put me into the CEC and FSW camps.

My application is already submitted in July 26th and it's only been about 3 weeks already.

IELTS. IIRC CELPIP is for French speaking.

CELPIP is an English test just like IELTS. TEF is for French.

How did you do in writing ? I can easily score 8+ in all bands in IELTS except for writing, as I do struggle with hand writing so I booked myself a session in CELPIP later this month.

My IELTS scores:

Listening: 7.5
Reading: 7.0
Writing: 6.5
Speaking: 8.5

I therefore get a CLB8. CLB9 needs L8-R7-W7-S7.

Hey mate!

I'm wondering how many points do I gain if I get CLB10 instead of CLB9?
Another question that occurs to me, if I get 8s in three IELTS bands and 6 in the writing component, what would my CLB be? Do CIC/Provinces focus on specific components of the exam?

Cheers

if you get a 6 in writing that means you'll be a CLB7 regardless of what other scores you have are higher.

CLB10 needs L8.5-R8-W7.5-S7.5
