You’re up against a quota. That says enough.

And page 7 onwards may provide some clues.
It’s not entirely how much you earn. ... -paper.pdf

“ We recognise the need to maintain the racial balance in Singapore’s population in order to preserve social stability. The pace and profile of our immigration intake have been calibrated to preserve this racial balance. ”

Like the observer mentioned, there are very specific quotas in place in order to preserve a predetermined racial balance. Within your racial group, you are competing against a big group of people, many of whom probably have a profile a lot like yourself. It is commendable that you have been promoted into a larger role since your last application. That may make a slight difference, however there is no way to tell whether or not it may be enough.
