No way of knowing for certain as that is a combination of factors which include your academics, experience, age and the employer's history as well as they are the sponsors.

The SAT ONLY shows if you are "Eligible" to "Apply" for an employment pass. In other words, there is no guarantee that qualifying using SAT with ultimately result in the issuance of the requisite employment pass. It only guarantees that it will be looked at and considered base on a composite score of which we can only guess. They hold those cards extremely close to their collective chests. In better days, yeah, pretty much sure of success. Not so much any more. In fact. When a pass was issued on initially may be rejected on renewal if your income/position/responsibilities do not increase over the 24 or 36 months of the pass. I've seen this happen all to often. I've also seen employers taken to task by the MOM because they reapplied with highers salaries in order to get approved but were actually make the employee kickback the additional portion of the salary, but still making the employee pay the additional income taxes on the quoted salary. You can only buys your ticket and takes your chances.... But never give notice to your current employer until you have a valid IPA.

If the SAT shows that I am eligible for an EP, what is the probability of the positive outcome (approved in actual)?
You will have a fair chance.
