Hi asking for my friend here, he has been granted deferment from NS until Mar 2021 to complete his poly studies. Does Mar 2021 means 31 Mar 2021 or the exact date is not specified?

You can tell your friend to call NS hotline or email them to confirm.

I don’t think you want to take the risk to ask a public forum and if people give wrong information your friend ends up in trouble right?

Anyway why does it matter? When your friend gets his enlistment letter to tell him what his enlistment day is, that’s what matter.

Poly exams usually finishes at end of February. So what is there to worry? Further more, enlistment usually takes place on Jan, Apr, July, Oct for enhanced BMT and Nov, Feb, May, Aug for PTP. Whether is it 1st Mar or 31st Mar does not matter at all.

It's means any day in March 2021. If they call you up but just nice you still have poly commitments, apply for deferment again.

CMPB takes consideration of your friend's education window period and definitely schedules the intake after his tertiary education. However if there were to be clashes, he can contact CMPB.

Most cases are people requesting deferment for other commitments like girlfriend's pregnancy, taking care of family and certain financial burdens. But not due to clashes with education unless they had been serving for at least 15 months.

It is always better to start and complete NS as early as possible.

I was from the era when poly started their new term in July and exam usually finished on May and I was enlisted in June when I was still technically a poly student then since my student pass expiry date is on 30 June of my graduation year and I can still use the poly's facilities.
