1. As your sister was adopted, her connection to her birth family was severed, so she is no longer considered a sibling.

Hi, i I have 435 CRS score and on my brother profile was created on 6th September 2018, below are my queries
• Currently the Cut off is lingering at 440 ish. Is it possible for the points to drop under 435 by December 2018?
• what are the chances to get an ITA by the end of the year for 435 ?
• Is 435 good enough? I have got S8 L8 R7 W7.5 in IELTS. Should I wait for the score to drop or should I re write to get better IELTS scores ?
• I have a sibling working in Torronto but she can only get her PR by May 2019, she has work permit and working in Canada with her work permit(without PR) can my CRS score increase ?

I can answer just the last one, you have to wait till May for your siblings PR. With sibling PR, you will get additional points. At this time, your brother's status cannot help you to get additional CRS points.

Hi,
Glad to hear that you got your PPR.
I am just wondering if you can help me understand a situation. The DNA test you did was it yours and your sister's? And the adoption happened in or outside Canada?
Thank you.
