is there a min no. of push up sit up to do for the new standards like within a min must do at least in order to pass that stn? like if u 10/25 pts you fail and fail overall? or other stn can do better, pick u up and help to compensate to pass overall?

need min 1 point per station.

anyone managed to dl the pdf at here

MINDEF - News - New IPPT motivates SAF servicemen to do well and keep fit (27 Feb 15)

for the new scoring tables for 3 stns? apparently its diff from last yrs tables during the press release last yr.

the above is the most recent one.

didn't managed to dl before it was taken down or the mindef site now is inaccessible ... some forbidden errors.

i think they added 5 points more that is required for silver and gold because in the pilot study, results showed that the old scores were too easily obtained.

Yes this is true.

You can no longer book IPPT, only RT.

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...
