Good day, My name is Abike, please assist clarify. My partner is the primary applicant for immigration application to Canada. However, is it necessary for me to verify my degree with WES to enable it boost his points?
This link gives all the information about verifying your degree. In short, in order to boost your points in the Comprehensive Ranking System under Express Entry, you must verify your degree with WES. Express Entry only considers degrees verified in a similar fashion to give you the points.
Its not a compulsion to verify your degree If you don't you just won't get the points for your education. So if you think you have enough points, then you don't need to verify your degree.
The cut off points for the Express Entry draw have been pretty low lately ranging around 450-500. So now would be a good time to apply for it.
