The CRS or comprehensive Ranking System
The CRS or comprehensive Ranking System is used to evaluate aspirants who are interested in moving to Canada through the express entry system. Express entry is highly competitive.
Interested candidates first must build an express entry profile, then the people with the best profiles are invited to submit their applications for Canadian permanent resident status.
But how does express entry decide which profiles are best?
That is where the CRS score comes in. Express entry is a points-based system. When you submit your express entry profile, you receive a score. Out of 1200 points, this score is based on the comprehensive ranking system and it is known as your CRS score.
Every two weeks approximately, the Canadian government conducts an express entry draw. In these draws, a cutoff score is specified. And then every person with a profile who has a CRS score above the cutoff receives an invitation to apply for permanent residence.

2- Skills transferability factors 100 points
