If a candidate is between 20 and 29 years old and without a spouse  or common law partner, he or she can get up to 110 points in the CRS. This is the highest score that a candidate can get for this category. However, if a candidate is between this range of age and has a spouse or common law partner, he or she can get a maximum of 100 points. Candidates must know that if they are less than 20 and more than 29 years old, they will lose points gradually. The candidate’s age is worth 12 percent of the overall selection criteria on the FSW (Federal Skilled Worker) selection grid. Although, candidates can lose points if their age is not between 20 and 29 years old, they should remember that they can get points for other factors such as job offer or language abilities. For example, if a candidate is 40 years old and who has no accompanying spouse or common-law partner, he or she can get up to 45 points, but if the candidate is 30 years old, he or she can get up to 95 points for the section “human capital factors”.
