Do you really want to change the environment for the asperger syndrome boy?

my original plan is to put all of them in local school, but unfortunately they arrived sg after primary 1, (they didn't come with me at the very beginning), we missed the window, so no choice for me, but to put them in International School. besides, I don't get any sponsorship on their education fee, in the long run, all three of them, or at least 2, have to take main stream.

I heard that the support of asperger kid is good in sg. ideally all 3 if them to main stream.

let say, if 2 in local school, 1 in international l, will that make any difference on my chance?

I am at 40, plus my wife isn't in high education level, after 1 or 2 fail attempts, I will be in early 40, that is why I try to make my best move, try to see how to get a higher chance.

thanks for your advice

do what is good for their education long term. Don't do mainly for the PR.

Going to be very tough to get PR from S Pass. Please try to upgrade to EP and then apply.

The headline from your skill sets probably give you a reasonable chance, but your ethnicity stands against you.

Your son is going to a local school (MOE) or is he going to a school locally? These are two different things

I also don't understand why people say they go to a top university or work for a top company. Who wouldn't say they didn't go to a top university/company?

I would be interested to know what you are actually doing as a data analytics "expert". Many juniors working at banks work with massive amounts of data (SQL, python etc), but wouldn't call themselves data analytics experts. They laugh and say - oh we just learn at undergrad.

I work on the business side and not IT. I collaborate with senior management across departments including front office to Solve problems, support strategic decision making, deliver business insights and perform impact measurement for key business initiatives. So not a junior level sql data retriever :)

My son goes to a cherie hearts center in the neighbourhood which follows the ECDA guidelines.

You need luck. Lots of it. There are quotas for Indians.

As for cherie hearts, as local as it might sound, its a privately run kindergarten.
No brownie points from the integration aspect of it.
