SC Approval Chances?

Post by rachel-ham » Fri, 01 Oct 2021 11:34 pm

Age: 30
Single
Gender: Female
Nationality: Indonesian
Ethnic: Chinese
Been an SPR since 2007 which I was invited to be during secondary school.
Had been educated in Singapore since PSLE primary 1, so actually I stayed in Singapore since late 1990s, had went through secondary school O-levels (but results so-so, not very good) and then go to local private unis to get graphic design degree + then I changed pathway to take double major in finance and marketing in another local private uni (aussie cert but studied locally in Singapore) - I have 2 degrees but they're not from the big few Singapore gov unis, not sure if this will affect?

Occupation: Currently working as an IT consultant with monthly salary of about 3.5k++ - for marketing related system

Previously worked as graphic designer, marketing sector etc but very low-medium pay so after I changed my job pathway, had an increase in salary, not as high to compared to other people here who have 50k annual salary, mine only about 40k+, cpf and taxes contribution ok then I only dare to think to apply.

Not sure how is the chances, I have another secondary school friend who is from China and got citizenship with lower pay several years ago. But have another china friend who bought a private condo here, married and stayed about as long as me with much higher pay got rejected, so the criteria seem very vague for me.

Also wondering whether SC applicants fill in this section "details of achievements and innovations
I just don't know what to write, unsure if it'll affect the probability of success...

Does anyone knows if we have to wait till 6-12mths to know we're rejected or it's usually relatively faster to know if get rejected as compared to accepted?

Probably your secondary school friend got it because of her length of stay, which is opposed to your other friend from same country? So your length of stay may get it for you. Having educated here suggests your already well integrated.

It's perhaps not a bad idea to highlight the invitation you received to become SPR and your length of stay as your achievement.

6-12 months time to get to know the outcome is applicable in family-ties cases, based on couple of incidences I know.

Insufficient data to give a valid opinion. Is your family here? If they are here are they SGC already? Otherwise family ties is not a valid option. You have long since reached the age of majority.

Thank you for all the feedback. My secondary school friend came later than me by about 7 years and I think she also got it because of her job as a police officer, she applied as a PR. Gov job is better definitely.

My family is not here. Only my mom is back in Indonesia but I hardly go back so family ties is not an option. Probably my length of stay will be my strength.

"Age of majority" meaning?

Age of Majority is 21. You are an adult and can no longer fly on you parent(s) coattails. Family Ties doesn't apply. That was for tempotrack's misleading reply.
