Even not knowing your race and nationality I am afraid you stand no chances. Look around for the other threads in this forum to see what people brought to the table and still got rejected. Having s-pass is going in the right direction but it is not enough to get PR after 2.5y of working in Singapore.
If you are Malaysian or Indonesian Chinese and have probably over 5 years of working behind you on s-pass (or better) you may probably have a chance but I doubt it is a high chance.

Sounds like uncle who is helping HR is having second thoughts about lying about your income to MOM for your S pass in view of the new rules criminalizing it. To save their arses, they have now canceled it and want you to apply for PR.

I'd be very leery of even continuing to work there. But in any case, if you are still on a WP, you can, for all intents and purposes, forget it. I would agree with x9200.
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!
