ME5-8 is very very difficult lei... heck CWO is more respectable than a Major or LTC..cause it's so rare and hard. only the very best of the best.
Why is getting a certain rank means respectable?

Nono. I'm not saying you shouldn't ask.

I'm saying you should ask yourself why are you even thinking of signing on.
The money? As of what I know is they will pay you a sum of money but will take more years ba. So there are pros and cons for signing on?

Once u enter army ur perspective will change. Now seems very garang right... ask yourself again six months after you enter want sign on anoy
But what if they said by this month or next, you will have to decide if you want to sign on or not? As of what I know, there are different sign on? So that mean there will be a later sign on date as what you have said about 6 months later?

Go through BMT first
Fight your way to OCS

Then see if you fit the army life
Then talk about sign on

I am sure there are plenty of avenues to discuss signing on then

If you are still keen and your performance is good, i am sure people will help you inside to realise your dream


Use the national service period to gauge if you really like it or not

If you want to sign on solely for the money then you will be damn miserable if you don't like what you are doing.

I believe you can sign on at anytime, it is just the sign on bonus n the back pay of regular pay will be different.

IPPT for women

I would be signing on with the army after I finish my last semester in uni (23F) and I have been scheduled for my IPPT. And I have some questions about the test:

1) What was your experience like when you were taking the IPPT? (Preferably answered from a femaleís POV)

2) Do I have to get a minimum silver if Iím signing on as a regular? Or is a pass sufficient? (Iím not 100% sure about this but I have been training hard for a silver. Just wanted to know in case something happens on the test day and my performance suffers)

3) What is the minimum passing score for push-ups or sit-ups? Is 1 point considered a pass? (My sit-ups are really bad and Iím afraid itís the station that is going to drag me down. Plus I know that they are super strict on posture)

4) Are females only required to do the bent-knee push-ups?

5) What happens if I fail? Am I allowed to retake?

I really hope someone can answer my questions. I have been losing sleep over my upcoming test!

2) the results impacts ur bonus and performance rating every year. if you are bouncing between silver and pass, not a good place to be at all.

5) can retake for the workyear but you will be under a lot of attention. failure is grounds for dismissal. if you are asking before you sign, they might give u some time to clear it while you are in service. but honestly, if you can't clear during the initial phases while you are in training, not much hopes for you.
