I know per ica website we meet the eligibility criteria to apply for citizenship, but wondering from chances perspective if it’s too soon to apply, especially given not a preferred race? Also, how do the chances (which I presume be v low already) get affected if I just applied for myself vs for all four of us?
Appreciate your help!
If you apply alone this year or anytime in future - chance is 0 to 3%. They clearly know that you are doing this to bypass NS for your kidQuads_sg wrote: ↑Wed, 04 Mar 2020 10:09 pmThank you so much for your guidance!
The only reason is to retain flexibility to send kids to International School. They both very young and we are still trying to figure out what method they could benefit most from.
(Now I don’t want to kickstart a debate on local v International Schools, they both got pros/cons in my view).
Does the application require some justification to be provided if I applied for self only? Reckon my real reason (above) won’t be well received...
Also, realistically, how low would my chances be if I applied for self only this year or next or after renewal of REP (assuming that comes through lol)?
Come on, NS requirements for PR and SC are same. But for SC, you will surely be doing NS, whereas in PR, some of them have set bad examples by surrendering the PR just before the NS age starts. Even if what you say is true, ICA is not going to accept it and consider even 1% to give you SC ALONE, unless as SMS says you are a neuro surgeon, rocket scientist, etcQuads_sg wrote: ↑Wed, 04 Mar 2020 11:04 pmmy kids currently are PRs, and per my understanding NS requirements are same for kids of both PR and SC, if not more stringent for kids of SC. So, not sure how attempt of getting SC from PR, even if only for self, translates to trying to bypass NS for kid tbh.....But will take your feedback v seriously!
In terms of %, you’ve actually given me hope - I thought we’d have <5% chance of getting through in all scenarios
You are trying to find too minute details and I think I have already said enough.
The question as far as I know is "can an SC kid study in a non public school". I believe the answer is yes but only after getting special approval from mom. Correct me if I am wrong.
