What are the chances of getting an exemption for Stanford law school? I imagine Ministry of Law would be aware of Stanford's reputation and prestige, no?

Once you've practiced for a bit, you can just take Part A and apply for an exemption for Part B. This issue really should not hold you back from your choice of schools, especially as you can always work in Singapore as foreign law counsel or in a US firm's office in Singapore.
