I believe it will be easier if you have a Singapore kid here.

I don't think that is going to help them at all. In fact, it may well hinder them further.

Sorry to say this, but if you were rejected is 2009 there is NO way you are getting it now unless you started making like 15k a month.

Interesting. I notice that people, especially Indians, are following the same format of providing their details while asking PR question :)

If they have done any research on this board at all, then they will know that there are certain questions we will ask about their credentials before we can give our opinions. So, rather than risk the ire of somebody, they are now trying to use a format that gets them the answer that they may or may not want, but without a lot of the to'ing and fro'ing back and forth. Makes life easier all the way around.

Based on the work I see produced by our offshored Indians, I'm guessing they're all just copying and pasting the same post, changing the least amount possible, to do the least work possible.

Ahhh, the old copy & paste syndrome. And that, my friends, is why the gahment doesn't publish their point spread and other criteria. Tailor made VISA, PR, and other applications.

Or they could. But say if you do this, you fail.

Just so they could automate rejection. Parse the application. Does it match the template? FAIL.

Catches those who don't read.

No, it's been noticeable for the past couple of months, but I wasn't going to say anything in case they reverted back to the old way out of spite! If something is for the good or you find a loophole, the last thing you should ever do it broadcast it. This is where Singaporeans and most Asians, in fact, drop the ball, broadcasting (bragging) when they find a loophole. It usually gets closed up PDQ. Serves them right.
