A maximum score of 10 units for Personal Suitability is possible under the current points system for assessment of independent immigration applicants. An independent applicant must score at least 70 points to pass the assessment. By comparison, the maximum scores available for the other selection criteria are:
- Education 16 2. Specific Vocational Preparation 18 3. Experience 8 4. Occupational Demand 10 5. Arranged Employment or Designated Occupation 10 6. Demographic Factor 8 7. Age 10 8. Knowledge of English and French Languages 15
Since the point rating system is only applied to members of the Independent and Business Classes of immigrants, neither the Personal Suitability criterion nor any of the other criteria in the point rating system are applied to sponsored family members.
