This may have been asked/answered before, but just wanted to check:

Now that the IPPT window has been extended to 12 months from 9 months, can someone choose to just take his IPPT right before and right after his birthday, meaning he clear 2 IPPT window within 2-3 weeks? Doesn't this mean we can just train once every 2 years instead of train yearly like last time?

Let's say that my birthday is mid-May, my current window close in May 2015. I can take one IPPT in early May 2015 (clear my 2015 window), and take another one in late May 2015 (clear my 2016) window. Then I don't have to worry about my IPPT until May 2017, when I can do the same, take 1 IPPT in early May 2017 (clear my 2016 window) and take another IPPT in late May 2017 (clear my 2017 window).

I dunno if Mindef has already addressed this but this seems like a loophole.

No.

IPPT window is 1 year, RT is another year.

You can't do back to back IPPT within 2-3 weeks unless you purposely fail IPPT in the first year, go into RT year...you didn't go for any sessions then just sit one ippt session and pass before the end of RT. Then take IPPT again when new year starts.

Cannot. Current system is 9 months ippt window and will close 3 months before your birthday. Not possible to do twice and pass unless the first ippt you pass is during your rt window.

Sigh. Took my RT-IPPT on my 8th session today and failed 2.4 again.

A question here. My 3 month RT window will close on 26 September 2014. With the new scheme taking place , will the 3 months + 12 more months ? Meaning 26 September 2014 + 12 more months for the RT window.

Is there any email which I can send an email with regards to this enquiries ?
its in this link.
I have tried to shared by creating a thread.
Enhancements to NS IPPT Management & Training System - News - ns.sg

Your RT will be extended to Sep 2015. 1 year plus to clear the 12 remaining RT. or of course, u can try to book IPPT and pass your IPPT which is also until Sep 2015.

There is no loophole. Its our understanding of our new system.
Lets start with your birthday after 2015. (Do not count 2014 as the system just started)

May 2015 birthday until May 2016 - You have 1 year to clear IPPT.
May 2015 to May 2016 - Assume u failed your IPPT in june. Then u start your RT after that.
- Or you can take IPT from May onwards, after failed, continue with RT. all in that year

What is the reason why I can't take back to back IPPT within 2-3 weeks? The IPPT window now is 12 months, not 9 months. Let's say my birthday is 15 May, then I can take 1 IPPT on 14 May 2015 to clear my 2015 window, and take another 1 on 16 May 2015, to clear my 2016 window. AFAIK, Mindef did not state that you have to wait a certain amount of time in between successful attempts. Last time, due to the 9 months window, you naturally have to wait a minimum of 3 months but now, it seems like you don't have to wait. Also, although my window is opened before the Sept 2014 implementation date, I believe I still get to enjoy 12 month window instead of the old 9 month window.

There is no loophole. Its our understanding of our new system.

May 2015 birthday until May 2016 - You have 1 year to clear IPPT.
May 2015 to May 2016 - Assume u failed your IPPT in june. Then u start your RT after that.
- Or you can take IPT from May onwards, after failed, continue with RT. all in that year
Sorry I'm not familiar with the RT system/schedule at all. I'm not bragging but I'm a comfortable silver now, what's holding me back from a gold is the running. To me, the new system seems easier to get gold as I can run slower, but just do more pushup and situp.

So using your example (with my birthday on 15 May):
May 2015 to May 2016 - Assume I train like crazy and manage to get a Gold when I take my IPPT on 14 May 2016.

May 2016 to May 2017 - Under the new 12 months window, I'll just take the IPPT again on 16 May 2016 and get another Gold.

May 2017 - May 2018 - I won't have to worry until 14 May 2018 to take my IPPT.

Looking at the above, I get to slack from 16 May 2016 to 14 May 2018, instead of intensive training yearly for a few months before my IPPT, now I only have to do it once every 2 years.

I got into IPT weight loss program in 2012. I weighted 89kg that time.
Year 2013 failed IPT and took 20 RT.
Year 2014 cleared FFI and I guess i will default RT as I cannot complete 20 RT in time.
Due to toothache, my weight dropped to 78kg.
Can I go back to IPT weight loss group and clear it immediately in 2015 since they have my data in 2012??

on ns.sg it still says this for me

You have NOT PASSED your IPPT for the period 01/11/2013 to 31/07/2014.
You have COMPLETED your IPT with PPT Not Met for the period 01/11/2013 to 31/07/2014.
You have NOT TAKEN your RT for the period 01/08/2014 to 31/10/2014.
Your next IPPT window will start from 01/11/2014 onwards.
a) Please COMPLETE your 8 RT sessions by 31/10/2014, otherwise you will be subjected to disciplinary action. You can continue to book and take Non-ICT IPPT at any of the FCC during your 3-months RT window. You will be discharged from your RT programme if you pass your IPPT.

Even though when I clarified with mindef hotline they said my RT window was extended to 10 november 2015.

Is this simply because the ns.sg is not updated, or should it already reflect this new rt window?

No. You have to sign up for IPT again. They will take your weight/height again to determine your new band again.

My IPPT window ending on 5 September 2014... thus my RT window will start on 6th September...

Am I eligible for the automatic 3 months IPPT window extension?? In that case, my RT window will start on 6th Dec?
