During my time, it was pretty easy.
When you have reached 3-4 years of service, you can apply for SQ.
You will go thriugh the same interview process but it's indicated that you are from MI.

I heard that after abt 2 years in Silk air, you can ask for transfer to SIA.

Not surprising since the standards are lower for SilkAir, evident by the educational qualifications required. However, educational qualifications aside if you work for SilkAir then want to transfer it means employing and training somebody to fill vacant position(s) within SilkAir. This is expensive and companies these days are keen to reduce costs, especially in the aviation industry on account of 'cut throat' competition from budget carriers.
