Hi,

regarding the 1st session of IPT, how do they decide on your 'band'?

for example, if my 2.4 is band 4 and my SBJ is band 0, what is my minimium target band for all stations to pass whole IPT?

Is it Band 1 target?

I have not previously taken any ippt/ipt as i have just ORDed

If that's the case, just do your worst will do. High chance to get band 1.

hi vasili,

you mean I must do worst for ALL stations to get band 1?

Or as long as i get band 0 for just one station , i will be assigned band 1 ?


thank you v much

for the very first time, your target band is determined by the lowest band of any one station.

so if you get band 0 for SBJ but others you get band 4, your target band will still be band 1.


for subsequent years, your target band will either your target band for the previous year plus 1, or your highest attained ipt-ippt/rt-ippt/ippt band for the previous year plus 1, whichever is higher.

You need to go for ipt 1st session 1st, then they give u your ppt and if it's ppt2, u have to book another non-ict ippt.

You can't just assume you are ppt2 without going through the ipt 1st session.

There is only IPT or RT.

RT 20 lessons--- first 7, follow by IPPT test. If pass, then you are cleared. IF not, go for 9-19 and follow by IPPT test. Pass or fail nvm cause it will be considered clear.
Of course in between the RT if u feel confident that you will pass, you can book for IPPT, pass it and no more RT. Fail, continue your RT as usual.

IPT 10 lessons---first lesson is IPPT assessment to categorised you into different bands. If you confident that you can pass the assigned band IPT standards, can book IPPT to clear and no need to complete remaining lessons.
If until end of IPT, still cannot pass IPT, then go for RT 8 lessons. If did not complete 10 lessons IPT, go for RT 20 lessons.

Btw, IPT standards are lower than IPPT but your band will progress each passing year so thus making it harder to pass.
RT ippt is ippt standard or ipt ppt standards if i taken ipt before rt?

Hi, can anyone confirm if ipt confirm need to complete for rt-ippt to take ppt grade?

I just took my rt-ippt and it meets my ppt band but i didn't complete my ipt. Does that mean i still have to continue with my rt?

Q12 Can I exit from the RT program earlier?
Yes if you pass your RT IPPT or if you are able to meet your own Personal Performance Target (PPT), (for those attending 8 RT sessions after completing IPT without meeting PPT).

If u fail to complete your ipt(10 sessions), u can't use your ppt during rt.

But if u completed your ipt, by the time u take your next ippt, it will be your last rt session. So ppt given to u is also useless as u will still exit rt regardless of the result.

Hope this help to clarify all doubts with regards to during ppt during rt-ippt.

Hi all,

I'll get straight to the point, my ippt window ended yst 21/5 and before that, I've took up IPT but only went for the 1st lesson and subsequently booked and tried for Non-ICT IPPT twice (fail)before the window closes yesterday.

I know that I am supposed to go for 20 RT lessons for the last three months before birthday date but as I'll be getting keys to my new HDB soon (Jun) so I don't think I can commit to 20 lessons at all.

Should I appeal to NS.sg for exemption that to treat that I've completed my IPT so that I will require to go for 8 lessons only instead or just default my IPPT and receive my charge?
wah so gd ah get house keys can siam 12 sessions of rt when u attended onli 1 ipt session ah?
