Cut-off prediction/ recommendation

I am new to the AU immigration space. I happened to notice that, the cut-off score in the last 2-3 invitation rounds is 65.Based on the score calculator, my projected score would be 65-70. Is it suggested/ advised if I start my PR process now (ACS, IELTS etc)? Has Covid brought down these scores & can one expect the cut-off to remain low over the next year too?
