it's been one week alr and they still haven't update my PPT.

should i call the hotline and ask them about it?
when did u take your IPT-IPPT / non-ICT IPPT? is your window ending soon?

even if u call, their advice to u is that u will need to wait as it is still in the midst of processing.

while waiting for the SMS in the meantime, check on your NS portal as it could be updated in there first followed by SMS which will be sent much later.

do remember to safe keep your out-pro slip which has your results.

Now go rt still got money incentive?
y e s..... all along this has been the case.

clear your window and go for IPT in your next window. IPT sessions are paid also only for 10 sessions but schedule and attendance wise is not strict compared to RT.

latest 7:35 or maybe 7:40, considering the averaged time needed to clear the queue as the counter opens at least 10 mins before 7:30. Therefore an average of 15mins to clear the queue.

normally once the queue is cleared, the counter will close. there will be chances within 20mins (by 7:50am) if u in-pro, they will still let u in provided the supervising ofr gives u the chance. but seriously, this is very subjective depending on the ofr.

if u will oversleep, i suggest u take evening slot (4pm).
Then it's quite different from the previous process le right? Previously can take up to 1 hour???

what do u mean by 1 hour? 1 hour to clear the queue and that u can in-pro for IPPT before 8:30am?

in that 1 hour, participants would be already have started their 2.4km already.

FCC would need to account for the strength by first closing the in-pro counter, before commencing warm-up and the test stations.

I forget the actually timing but I hope to share my experience.

First of all, your concern is not FCC but guard house. If your IPT/RT session start at 1900 hrs, guard house will stop you from going into the camp & you cannot in-pro with FCC. I kena before due to 15 mins late (reach camp at 1915hrs) because of OT at workplace.

Once you are inside camp, FCC are lenient for you to in-pro late. As for how late, I will not mention so that I will not sabo FCC & the rest of servicemen will still have this 'benefit'. Sad thing is I never use this 'benefit' when I am still active.

For IPPT, better come early cause the 1st to in-pro at counter is always IPPT batch. Take around 15mins to clear counter. 2.4km will always be the last station & the rest of IPPT stations very fast finish. It take around near to an hour to finish everything from in-pro to out-pro.

Because I remember last time (when IPT first started), inpro counter doesn't close that early. Unless my memory is failing me, because I have been taking IPPT during ICT for past few cycles...

So the norm should be 5-10 mins before the inpro counter closes?

correct. if u do get the SMS reminder, it will tell u to actually "Please report 15mins early with your NRIC/SAF Card and FFI if applicable".

and be sure to report to the counter in your PT attire because some DXO will comment you for being late and not being properly attired.

u will be considered as IPPT Failure.

n good news is that probably u do not need to complete RT because of your MR. but do verify with your NS unit

I took it on 13 july 2017 thursday, so it has been around 7 working days so far.
My window closes at end of october, so still got around close to 3 months.

The thing is that the results are already long updated and reflected on the ns portal system since last week but it doesn't indicate that the target ppt has been achieved/cleared.

I guess I'll just wait awhile more then.
Thanks for the advice. Much appreciated.

Advice required...

Hi guys,

Need advice..

"You have been Exempted from RT for your current window.
Your next IPPT window will open on xx Jul 2018. "

I just did my IPT for this work year leading to my birthday.
Does it mean i dont need to do IPT from now to next year Jul?
