Question: My last year i had ipt and was in ppt 2, i passed the ppt but failed the ippt.
So this year i should be in ppt 3 right? On my 1st session - IPT-IPPT, i achieved the ppt 3 standard.

Does that mean i fulfilled my ippt/ipt/rt obligations for the year and don't need to go for the rest of my sessions?

Also, will NS portal reflect this or do i have to go for the 2nd session yada yada yada?
assuming ur mentioned "1st session" is correct, u have actually had your 1 out of 10 IPT sessions. Therefore, you have not fulfilled your obligations yet.

You should therefore book a IPPT and meet the band 3 standards or better. Only than you are considered completed as you already have your banding from your 1st session.

However, if the results from that first session of yours happens to satisfy band 4 requirements, you have raised your bar higher to pass your IPT.

Note that requirements and banding will change wef Apr 15. Stay tuned for details by the media.

Need help with a question.

I passed my ippt for this year's window (till april 2015). I am going for ICT in March 2015 and I read that there is an ippt scheduled during the ICT.

Does it mean that it doesnt matter if I pass or fail since I already cleared?
If I pass(with bronze), do I get an incentive for the second time?
it does not matter if u pass or fail. but your unit will definitely be pressurising you to pass as this reflects the unit's fitness level.

incentives for second time - yes. only if your second time qualifies for a higher award with balance top-up. For example, you had passed and got $200. In your second time you got a silver where the award is $300. It will minus from your $200. Which means u will get the balance of $100.

If you got higher award first, and lower award second, it will be nothing.

My band was 2 last year. This is the first session for the window. Doesn't that mean it doesn't matter how you perform at the first session? And i thought your band only +1 per year?

Last year I completed IPT 10 sessions but failed, this year no need RT?

This year if I complete IPT 10 sessions but fail, next year no need RT?

Every year take 10 IPT better than 20 RT.

no. your theory only applies if you faired below the high banding requirement.

if let say for example, previous window you are band 1, and for this window u met band 4 requirements, than your this window is to meet band 4.

that's why the 1st IPT is always a banding ippt.

I don't get it.

1st 12-month window take 10 IPT sessions. If fail, 2nd 12-month window take 8 RT sessions. If fail again, 3rd 12-month window straight away 20 RT sessions???

i know the broucher is quite misleading. but what they meant by failing IPT is when u did not have 10 sessions of IPT, or failing to meet your PPT in your IPPT during your IPT phase.

perhaps u can take this misleading info up to the straits times and have an official public reply.
