My opinion is that the OP's case will be up there in the list. I am also unable to appreciate why application for PR is free but application for citizenship has its costs?

A guy in my office got rejected every year for 5 years ...

He finally got accepted last year on his 6th attempt.

Probably his application particulars changed just enough to make it into the green zone. Wonder if they give points for persistence?

Lots of people I have spoken with, believe that they have some kind of secret yearly quota system that starts at the beginning of the year and they think they got rejected because the quota finished and hence keep applying every year, trying their luck. I have also heard of cases of success after 3 or 4 attempts, especially in cases for child's dependent PR.

I am assuming he did more and more to improve his chances, my boss said he worked very hard at getting his PR.

I dont the particulars , but maybe every rejection gave the hints of what needs to be done I have no idea.

However he finally reached whatever level they feel he had to get to to be accepted.
