Dear Friends, 

Kindly advice on below query :

My wife was working till April 2013 ,as a vocational teacher from 2007 till 2013 ,she had a 5 year experience as a teacher , she is now 37 , she has done BA, B. Ed, MA, her score in IELTS is L 8,W 8,S 7,R 7.5 ,her ECA approves her having 2 degrees in university and does not considers her MA as masters equivalent ,and my score is L & R as 7.5 , W 7, S 8 ,my age is 39, I have done BA from correspondence from Punjab univ ,and PGDBM in marketing full time l,in ECA evaluation my degree is approved but not my PGDBM.

Now should my wife be the main applicant or should i be the main applicant , while calculating CRS i am getting 380 ,while my wife is scoring 435 .

My only concern is that will her experience which is almost 5 years old ,if considered from February 2018( if we then go into the pool) will hold value for immigration as she is not working from past 4-5 years.

As long as she qualifies for Express Entry, the fact that she hasn't worked in the last 4-5 years should not impact her CRS score. Since she would have a higher score, she should be the main applicant.
