Hmm i do have a hunch though that the iEnquiry system is only updated once in awhile.
Seems like every time after there are scheduled maintenance posted on the website, few people would come in afterwards and post in their rejection/approval results.

Malaysian Chinese, male, mid 20s, graduated from local poly. Holding S Pass and applied for PR less than 5 months at my first job.

Due to my scant job experience, I focused on my academic achievements instead, but I can't say for sure how it has helped, for ICA's criteria is always enigmatic.


I'm surprised it took them 9 months to reject you. After all, first thing they saw was the fact that you didn't even wait the minimum 6 months before applying. I reckon they don't need FT who are not any brighter than the average local. They sure don't need any more who cannot follow simple instructions.


Pretty sure you misread my post. But you're right in that ICA should reject those lowly-educated and undesirable candidates promptly, especially those who can't even read properly.

Or, better yet, promptly deport those lowly-educated and undesirable PRs who can't even read properly. :mrgreen:

(We kid, SMS. We kid.)

Congratulations, PermanentRisk. Doubly.

I don't believe that attempting to win friends in ICA is a good or even mediocre reason to marry. Love is a much better reason in my view. Perhaps that makes me a hopeless romantic, although I'm in good company. :D

Tis true. I had just sat down to eat after having one of those days at the office (23 threads I'd not looked at all day). Speed reading and completely blew it. At least it was caught. That's why we have to keep each other in line. Seriously, somebody figure out how I can fulfill my obligations here on the little red dot and I'm ready go home. I think. :-k

wishingyouahappyday wrote:Hi,

I have just received my Rejection Letter this morning from ICA after 5 months waiting.
Just sharing:
1- S Pass/ SGD 46k per a.n
2- Applied @ Nov 2015/ 3rd application
3- Vietnamese Chinese/Single
4- Singapore since 2008
5: Education: Advanced Dip from Raffles Education, Degree from SIM Uni and 6 months short course from Harvard, US.


At my work I've come across several Vietnamese acquaintances, some of them successfully got their PR, some, like you, are not so lucky.

But those who got their PR are all graduates of well-known universities (NTU and NUS). Oh, they studied engineering and, invariably, speak much better English from my observation.

Anyway, it's admirable that you've gone to such great length to get a hold of the PR status. I wish you all the best!


Thank you and congrats to your Pr!

At least we agree on something. However, I'm not sure I'm a hopeless romantic, or just a glutton for punishment. :cool:

I suspect we agree on a great many things, maybe even most things.

This is EP application?

How is it relevant to PR applicants?

I'm pretty sure the poster meant PR as the first line indicated his pass and salary level.
