zun bo? like that everyone can keng rite?
keng what?

let's say 51 points is needed to pass ippt,

and you get 50 points for 2.4km, 1 point for push up, and 0 points for sit up, you still fail cos you failed to get min 1 point per station.

my pt is if u say min 1 pt for each stn, one can just focus on one stn and neglect training for the other 2 since one only needs 1 pt frm other 2 stns and excel exceedingly in the remaining 1 stn. tats what i mean by keng 2 stns since u dun even need min. effort.

in that sense, yes you can keng but max point for 2.4km is 50 points whereas the max points for push-up and sit-up are only 25 points each.

to get 50 points for 2.4km, you will need to hit the old ippt gold timing.

to get max points for sit-up and push-up, you will need to do something like 55++ repetitions in 1 min.

and 1 repetition does not give you 1 point, you need like 10++ repetitions just for 1 point so you will still need to put in a little effort.
focusing on 1 station only will only work if you are focusing on 2.4km.

Rather than booking IPTs for every sessions,
why not we book it as following under the new system:

Year 1
2 IPPT attempts
8 IPT sessions (where 1st session is IPT-IPPT)
Year 2
10 RT sessions (20-2-8=10)

Get paid for 13 sessions over the 2 years rather than 4 sessions over the 2 years? I hope I didn't miss out any new policies introduced.

You are planning as if you know you will never ever pass IPPT ?

If so, then maybe this is a good idea to maximize the paid sessions. But do people really care about that little bit of money ? Honestly your opportunity cost is surely worth more than whatever they pay you.

Especially for those doing sales, an hour outside can easily earn 10 fold of what they pay you...

so what youre sayinnn now is that irregardless u pass or fail ippt after changes implemented next mth apr even if u go ipt u fail ippt u still need to go rt following yr>? wtf man. like dat might as well fail str away dun go ipt and next yr go rt 20 session which is paid whereas yr ipt sessions isn't.
no discounts in rt sessions even u go ipt. stupid they goin back to sq 1. who wuld go ipt when they knw they gona fail and still have to go rt. both also 20 sessions in all. if u go ipt u dun get paid for the 10 sessions.

now you get paid for all 10 ipt sessions as well.

and whether there is exemption from rt due to completion of ipt or not, in the end it is still the same cos:

with exemption from rt
year 2014: 10 ipt
year 2015: exempted from rt, new ippt window start, 10 ipt

without exemption from rt
year 2014: 10 ipt
year 2015: 10 rt (20-d)
year 2016: new ippt window

the exemption from rt due to completion of ipt does not mean you get to skip a calender year so regardless of which policy saf decided on, it is still 20 sessions in 2 years.
