How realistic are the chances of getting PNP in 2021 (CRS 384 - NOC 4166)

hi,
How realistic are the possibilities of a PNP nomination in 2021?
I have a CRS score of 384 only and even though I work in the technology sector, I've applied under 4166 – Education policy researchers, consultants and program officers - This being my role as a Technical Training Content developer/instructor.
I did score a CLB 9 in IELTS, but the consultant now tells me that I should probably learn French to get a few more points.
My understanding of PNP is that only if a particular province has a need for 4166 (which does not seem to be very promising), they'd look into the Express Entry pool and then send invitations based on the top CRS scores.
I'd like to know how realistic are my chances and if its really worth spending money and time trying to learn French; or should we consider immigration beyond our grasp.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I have heard people getting OINP for 400 under human capital priorities scheme. but the cut-off goes at 460+ which is almost as high as EE.

I have a crs score of 436 in 2173 -Software engineer.
Most consultant advice to do a 1 year master. But my doubt is rules and score will drastically change by the time I finish masters and again doing a masters for the sake of points will only cost time and money

So do II really stand a chance with 436 point in OINP human capital prioritie scheme with NOC 2173?

Should I tell you that my score was also less than 400 and I got nominated as I used well the waiting time to learn French. I learnt French from scratch, I contacted reputed institutions but they did not offer tailored courses and nothing specific to TEF/TCF and moreover I did not have much time to take it up. A friend suggested Languagesy and I took courses with them. They were super good, they helped me complete the course quickly and suggested me lots of ideas to approach the course ( which was very helpful). I got nominated within a week after I uploaded my French scores. I suggest that you consider learning French as some provinces look for bilinguals it is certainly worth the money. Please visit their website and contact them if you are interested. Sharing their website in case you wish to try: https://www.languagesy.com
you can also write to me if you need more details.

What's the score you received for French and how much extra marks did you receive for that?

I had 24 extra points because of French. Thanks to languagesy (for the techniques they shared). My scores were 380 in speaking, 305 in listening, 270 in reading, 380 in writing. I was happy about the score and I achieved it in around 5 months, i dedicated some extra time to it apart the classes.I also discovered that they was a demand for bilinguals.

Well, given that the lowest score was once 421, I guess it's possible. The general trend country wide has been for these scores to go up but who knows what kind of wrench the pandemic has thrown into it.

I used to think fewer people would join the pool during the pandemic but that's not quite what happened: https://www.immigroup.com/news/express-entry-pool-points-distribution Apparently plenty of people still believed they could and should immigrate to Canada during this time.

Once the border re-opens and we have enough vaccinated people for things to sort of go back to normal I guess we'll get a better idea of what all cut-offs will look like. Sorry I can't be more specific.
