I have to admit though, SBJ doesn't really tell anything about your fitness. Perhaps that's why it was removed in the new IPPT. I can be damn lousy at chin ups situps running if i nua for 1 year but still get 234cm for SBJ -_-

Hi, just to enquire, I am currently ongoing my 2 weeks ICT which started on Monday, 13 April, and ends this coming Friday, 24 April.

What happened was that, since my birthday is in December, and my ippt window opened on 10th December 2014, I actually attempted and managed to pass the old ippt on 22 January 2015.

But, I was told that I'm still required to attempt and clear the new ippt, which is effective 1 April.

However, since I have ippt on the last day of my ICT, 24 April, if, for example I managed to pass and clear it, would it mean that I have already cleared my current ippt window?

there is a buddy system. so for instance, tag number 71 to 75 will do push up first while tag 76 to 80 will count for them. then tag 76 to 80 will do while tag 71 to 75 count.

the assistant is the one that put his fist below the chest and the assistant will also do the counting out loud.

there will be a PTI beside you who make sure that you are doing standard push up and will tell you on the spot if the push up is no count but the assistant will keep counting out loud without subtracting the no count away.


the push up is actually not that hard but is just very tiring. i managed to do 49-4=45 during my ippt this evening.

i am the short and skinny underweight type whereby the last time i exercise was December 2013 during my RT. what i did was to do 20 standard push ups everyday for the past few months. and then once 20 standard push ups is chicken feet, i start doing 20 standard and fast push ups. and then once there is chicken feet, i increase to 30 standard and fast push ups.

but in the end i fail my ippt cos i ran/walk 20min for 2.4km.




0 to 15 points ==> 16 to 30 points ==> 31 to 50 points ==> standard ippt pass

let's say if your very first ipt-ippt you get only 8 points. so the PPT for this year is "16 to 30 points". then next year your PPT is "31 to 50 points". and then from next next year onwards your PPT is standard ippt pass forever.

if your very first ipt-ippt you get only 25 points. so the PPT for this year is "31 to 50 points". and then from next year onwards your PPT is standard ippt pass forever.

if your very first ipt-ippt you get only 35 points. so the PPT for this year is standard ippt pass. and then from next year onwards your PPT is also standard ippt pass forever.


so basically everyone is screwed within 3 years.
anyone knows if the PPT target is reset following the new 3 station ippt?
(i.e. everyone can just score less than 15 points to go the lowest band.)

also, do we need to go for the full 10 sessions of ipt?
after getting the band for my ipt, can i straight away book non-ict ippt, meet the band, and get this ******** done and over with?

thanks in advance.

You shouldn't have to attempt and pass the new IPPT just because it's the new system. Since you have already passed on 22 January '15, you should be done until after 10th Dec '15.

My window is from May '14 to May '15, I passed the old IPPT in ICT too in March '15, so I shouldn't need to take again until after May '15.

I realised under the new RT system, you will get discount for every IPPT and IPT session attended. So since the max attempts for IPPT is 3, does this mean I just book for 3 seperate IPPT sessions, go for attendence and fail I will still get 20 - 3 = 17 RTs instead of the full 20? Or is there a catch to it? Sounds too good to be true! Like that I can just go in anyhow fail 3 IPPT sessions and I only do 17 RT.

Also does the very 1st IPPT attempt still count towards this? Or is it only subsequent attempts after the fail?

It may count but you won't get paid for the 4th ippt onwards. Only first 3 ippt per year get paid for attendance. If a bit of money does not matter to you, you can go try lor.

from what i know, the discount only applies to IPT (including IPT-IPPT). first time heard it applies to IPPT as well.

and you might as well just go for all 10 IPT so next year you only need to do 10 RT.

supposedly there is money for IPT training sessions as well now. my window started before 1st April 2015 so i am still under the old "IPT got no pay" system so i cannot personally confirm it.

As per the pamphlet they sent us, it says if you fail your IPPT, your RT window will be 20 sessions minus the number of IPPT and/or IPT sessions you have attended in the previous window. This is because the SAF "recognises NSmen's effort and commitment in the previous IPPT window and reduces RT sessions in the current window correspondingly" in their exact words :p

Hey guys, first time taking ippt as a nsmen here. I dont think I can pass my ippt due to my running thus I plan to take the ipt route. So I got some questions to ask.

1. What is the difference between RT and IPT in terms of training/duration? Is it the same like doing static and running??

2. About booking of IPT. What is the maximum session can I book within a month? Example can i like book 10 sessions within a month if that month do not public holiday and I very free?

3. How long is each session of IPT (maju camp)?

4. From what i understand 1st and 10th session is IPT-IPPT. So if my 1st and 10th session I fail my ippt, I only need to take (20-10=10) sessions of RT in the next window?

5. If let say I got only 10 points for my 1st IPT-IPPT but at the 10th session I got 20 points so which mean I am clear for this window? And as for the next window I just need to get 30 points to cleared? ( I use the reference of ppt by j_t_fusion)

6. If by any chance I cant complete the full 10 sessions will I get charged?

Hope expert here can clear doubt.
