PR Approval Chances 2022

Post by kimsh422 » Mon, 18 Apr 2022 5:00 pm

Hi everyone!

Trying to get a view on my PR application approval chances here. Would like some insights on the probability of success:

Age: 27
Ethnicity: Korean
Pass: EP
Education: Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering (NUS), Master of Science in Quantitative Finance (SMU)
Job: Banking Front Office
Experience: 3+ (almost 4 now)
Salary: 70K+
Time in Singapore: 20 years
Marital Status: Single
Etc: Parents are PR as well, running stable business with high income. Parents own 2 properties in SG.

Basically I've lived in SG for my entire life taking PSLE, O/A Levels with good grades and finished my MOE Tuition Grant Bond as well last year. I applied once in 2020 but was rejected after 6 months and I reapplied in Oct 2021. I emailed ICA a few weeks back and they said that they have forwarded the case to the office in charge but I am not sure if that means something positive or it's just a standard reply. I thought I was going back to Korea so I rejected PR once in my secondary school days but now I plan to settle in SG and naturalize (hopefully). Hoping to get a PR this time. Thanks for the input guys!

Sadly, the government has a very, very long memory (ROM). Therein is the problem and just maybe the answer you got back is pertaining to a hopefully "rash" decision as a youth and maybe they are actually going to reconsider. I'm pretty sure that is the hiccup at this point in time. They are, after all, civil servants and have a standard SOP that they have to follow so can only shift it up the chain of command for an exemption to the standards normally used. Good Luck.

Profile is largely promising, only concerns are ethnic quota and the fact that you rejected PR once back in the day (like SMS mentioned, the government never forgets). But no point worrying because neither of these are things you can change.

your parents are PR.
When you reject PR during Secondary time, it look to everyone. you are trying to avoid NS as 2nd generation PR.

Now you want to get PR by your own as 1st generation PR.

My guess.. HARD

If OP is male, though, then you’re exactly right. Will be much harder.

OP is most certainly a man based on their course of study and well, it doesn't look good.

While you are possibly correct, you need to get 'woke' (whatever in hell that is actually supposed to mean). You might be surprised the number of women who have electrical engineering degrees and higher degrees in said field as well. In the US alone over 11% of all practicing electrical engineers are women. (there are over 96K practicing electrical engineers in the US as of Dec 2021)

Of Singapore's annual cohort of engineering degrees of all disciplines, about 22% of them are women which is one in 5.

You’ve used the expression right SMS, and you’re right! Even though the numbers are incredibly disproportionate, there are more women in STEM today than ever before.

Not sure how you’re making this inference.

I am a woman in a STEM field, no need to lecture me on this one. The fact that OP turned down PR + in this particular field, well, I'm just saying it would be very unlikely that a woman a) declined PR and b) studied EE, well that would sure be a hell of a coincidence.
