Hi just want to seek advice.
Took IPPT today and turns out I failed miserably (30 points)
My IPPT window is closing by 31 Mar [last IPPT date 28 Mar].

Should I just train for the next 3-4 weeks and book one on early Feb or opt for IPT sessions instead? For IPT, is it possible to clear 10 sessions on time?

That will depend on how many days per week u are able to commit. Lets say u can go for the maximum 3-4 times per week (Mandatory 1 day rest in between each session), should be able to clear within a month.

IMHO, you should go for IPT while also training to try and pass your IPPT. In the event if u are not able to complete your IPT or pass your IPPT, at least these sessions will be used to shave off the amount of RT u need to do in the next window. Doing IPT and IPPT also will have 0.5 day rank pay

do you think you will be able to train religiously for the next 3-4 weeks to make a difference?

My windows usually ends on Mid Feb and I tend to start my IPT on early Dec and my last session tend to be on end of Jan or early Feb. If you attend IPT once or twice per week it is possible to complete your 10 IPT sessions if you start your 1st session next week.

Or just sign up for ipt the moment your window opens and do a session once a month. Then no need to chiong. lol

So what you mean is I should go for IPT sessions from now on but at the same time book an IPPT session on a separate date [e.g around early Feb]?

I think I am able to do my training on some weekdays and on the weekends.
Should I just focus on improving my running for my training?
For some reason, the machines for the pushups/situps stations did not detect quite a handful of counts so I got a lower score for these stations than I expected.

There are only a few slots next week and the only time I can make it on is at Bedok FCC (which is quite far from my house) , should I just go for that one?

Also, does anyone know why are there zero slots for NSTI or SUTD?

"Think" isn't good enough. You can think as much as you want, but if you can't commit, then you might as well don't do it.

That means you aren't doing it right.

Yeah, any IPT/IPPT u took this window will be used to offset the RT for next window if u cannot complete IPT or pass IPPT.

book a separate IPPT only if you think you can pass.

otherwise just complete your 10 sessions of IPT.

Doing IPPT but failed will allow off-setting of RT sessions in the next window (20-D). However, it will be more convenient by doing all 10 IPT instead after considering the possible charges by failing or defaulting IPPT, as well as compulsory attendance for RT.

Afterall IPT is also payable.

So, work out your sums.

You may consider IPT-In-The-Park if you stay or work near AMK-Bishan Park, Punggol Park or Marina Bay Promenade.

Hi i have appt to see specialist at NTFGH on 18/2 which is also the first day of my ict. My unit has allowed me to go for the appt before reporting for ict. My ippt is in June, so will I be downgraded in time to be exempted from ippt? This appt was arranged by the medical centre because during my medical review, the mo refused to accept letter from my physio and said that he would only accept specialist letter.
