Hi,
As per the information provided by you , your score in Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) skilled immigrants (Express Entry) is 430

Ideally a score of above 470 is needed to easily get a PR in express entry, though you can go for the student visa route in which you need to get a student visa after which you can apply for Permanent Residency which is easier route.
