Hi everyone! Hope you are all keeping safe. I plan to apply for PR after the tax assessment this year. I have been working in Singapore for a year since June 2020 and would like to try my chances.

My background as follows:
Age : 25
Race : Myanmar
Gender : Female
Marital Status : Single
Education : Bachelor
Current Work Industry: IT Industry 4.0/ Smart Nation
Length of stay : 9 years and counting (studied Sec School+Poly diploma here)
No of tax return : I wasn't taxed in 2020
Salary : Basic 54k ; Gross 67.5k+ with AWS+bonus
Pass : SP (due to increased salary req implemented in June 2020, from the onset of COVID)

I will have to apply under PTE scheme, but I do have family ties (albeit not marital partner, but my parents are working here and younger siblings studying here)
Due to my roots here (family, friends), it's a natural decision for me to settle down here, and hope to convey the intent across in my application - 1st time applying.
Unfortunately, my parents missed the "golden era" of PR grants and the rest is history.

I am quite new to this forum, would be really grateful for your evaluation on my chances, any advice or guidance :)
What does IT Industry 4.0 mean?
Apply after working for 2-3 years.
Since you are here from young, you may score some points for that. That is the only positive factor.

Will be better if you move to EP and then apply. Chance will be better.
Thanks @singaporeflyer! Essentially, my company is working in area that aligns with Singapore's digitalisation and sustainability agenda (set out by Smart Nation Initiative and recently issued SG Green Plan 2030 roadmap) for whole-of-nation efforts. So hoping that that will give me some plus points.
Appreciate your input and I completely agree with you that working a few more years would boost my chances, and definitely working my way towards getting EP slowly but surely.

Can I please clarify with you on this notion that 1st application gives you the highest success rate?
Weighing between giving it a try early next year VS holding off until 2-3 years later, ie. 2024 with a better profile
Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this!

A few days ago, realised that the "submit requested document" box was gone.
There’s an entire topic dedicated to the submission button disappearing. It could mean you might know the outcome soon.

Probably means that in the near future you will get a rejected or approved notice from ICA. One thing it certainly means is they do NOT need/want any further information from you at this point in time.

Ethnicity. Very difficult here as you fall in the "others" category, 1.5% of the demographic or 1.5% of all peoples who are not Chinese (#1) Malay (#2) Indian (#3). This includes everybody else in the world who are not specifically in those three ethnic groups. ICA uses immigration to keep the ethnic demographic stable. Only +/- 30K PR granted annually, so that means around 450~500 slots for "Others".

Would appreciate any thoughts on approval chances for me and my wife who applied back in February this year.

Age: early 30s
Japanese
Bachelor (US) top 20
Industry: Advertising
Salary/bonus: 250K+
Most recent years in SG: 6.5
Visa: EP

Wife
Age: early 30s
Japanese
Bachelor
Industry: Marketing
Salary/bonus: 100K+
Most recent years in SG: 5
Visa: EP

Guessing being Japanese won't be of any help given that'd be classified under the "Others" category. Just haven't read up on many who've applied for PR.

It is what it is.

Thing abt the others category is that most of the filled slots are taken up by spouses of citizens
