Not sure why my SC application was rejected after 2 years

Hi All,

My Singapore Citizenship application just got rejected and I wanted to get your thoughts on possible reasons behind the rejection. I know I can't know the reason with certainty, but some thoughts/feedback would help me get a better perspective.

A little about myself:
- Ethnicity: Indian, Single Male 28Y old
- Came to Singapore in 2011 to study Bachelors in Engineering on a MOE Tuition Grant.Was bonded to work in Singapore for 3 years after graduation
- Got my PR in June 2017 (within 6 months of application period)
- Applied for citizenship in Dec 2019 and was rejected in Jan 2022, after a long 2 year wait
- Salary is about 7K/m and work in a strategy/management role for a late stage startup based in Singapore

Finish 1 full REP renewal and then try again. Too early to apply in 2019 when you had got PR only in 2017. Wait for 2 years from now and then reapply.

Also quota and salary may be a part of the factor.

You'll make it on the next or subsequent round. Engineers are in short supply.
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
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!
