Hi All please advice ,

1) I came Singapore in 2006 and 2007 I Started Studying Primary 4(Govt School) and continue my Secondary in express stream.

2) I completed My Diploma at Local Polytechnic, Mechatronics Engineer in 2017 after that I went On to do My National service at SCDF as medic in Fire station.. we respond to 995 calls. I have recieved perfect Attendance Award during my NS( Never took any MC in whole 2 years of NS) .Overall Conduct and performence was given Outstanding in NS. RANK: SGT.

3) After Completed My NS I went on to Work for MNC, as a SeniorTech in Facility department.Essiential worker worked in COVID19 . Iam reciving average Gross montly salary of $3500 for my Last 6 month, Dec to May.

4) I applied for Citizenship in aug/2019 Iam really Disappointed to hear that I got my Citizenship rejected last month. My reservist starting next month 18days 
Iam 26 this year. I came SG when I was 12.
Iam really attached Singapore.  Not easy to cope with this rejection (stressful) ..

How long have you been working in SG?
Should you work for 2 years and then apply?

May be they would want to see you working for 1-2 years before they grant SC?

It is disheartening to hear of your rejection even after completing NS with a clean record, but it is something i can relate to very well.
It used to be quite unheard of unless you had something extremely negative on your NS record or had a criminal record, but looks like it is not as rare anymore especially if you're not of the usual flavor of the month.

But, the advise to wait until a year or two of employment does make sense.
Don't lose heart and hang in there. If all else is good, the second or third time is likely to be a charm for you.

Dear MST sir, I can understand your feeling of being let down. However don't loose hope. Your credentials have been seen by very seniors like SF and as per his advise it is a matter of time only to get SC. May be the only reason might be 2 years in the job. So dont loose heart and you will get it. I am not trying to console you only but your details are worth granting EXCEPT FOR THE 2 Yrs CONDITION.

IF you're not Chinese you won't get in quick. There is a backlog of India and other races in the system. Saying that you credentials should help you jump the queue eventually.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA

He was probably offered to sign on as a regular instead of just doing his NS (21~24 months) vrs a 5 or 10 year sign-on as a regular serviceman. Not sure as to the 5 year period, but one of my nephews is a commando and signed on for 10 after NS. (I think he's still in - haven't spoken to him in a while).
