What if I fail IPPt previously and required to go for RT.. Can I attempt the IPPT again before completing the RT?

Hey guys,

I booked for RT(not my first time) on this Monday but was unable to attend on that day, I called the HTA RT office from 2pm all the way to 6pm, and someone in the office kept telling me the RT in charge officer is not around and to call back 30 mins later. I wanted to call them to tell them I was unable to come due to sudden engagement in business.

Now I check my ns.sg, and I was marked as away without reason for that day...

Is it really so strict until I have to give up my business and life for this thing..

So what now? Will I get charged AWOL for missing one session of RT?

And even if I explained to the RT trainers on my session tomorrow, what can they do? The attendance report had already been sent to the Admin side, and I have a feeling they're not the forgiving and close one eye types.

Miss one RT no big deal one. Can rebook RT session. Will not get charged.
Just make sure you finish your 20 RT sessions before your birthday. Or pass RT-IPPT on 8th or 14th or 20th session.

Try not to miss any more RT sessions. You can cancel up to 12 midnight the day before. If on the day itself something happens, call NS hotline (1800 367 6767) and tell the customer service officer what happened, ask him nicely to try cancel for you or at least make a record of your call. So you would have accounted for it instead of being away without reason.

If you miss a booked session 3 times, the system will block you from further booking. Then to get it unblocked is a bit more troublesome.

Anyway the idea is there are a limited number of vacancies, so if you book but never go, you are denying someone else of that slot.

19 for you :)

Trust ns.sg, that's correct.

You only need to do (20 - D) RT sessions now, where D is the number of IPPT/IPT you attempted in your IPPT window.

You must have attempted IPPT once in your window, which is why 20 - 1 = 19 RT sessions for you.

For both the 8th & 14th session, you book it as a normal RT session

The system will automatically change it to "RT-IPPT"

When you go to the camp, you have to do the IPPT. They will call for the people taking IPPT, RT-IPPT, IPT-IPPT to gather together and register. You won't be able to queue up with the RT people.

Why you prefer RT to IPPT anyway? Isn't IPPT much more slack?

Hi.. Posting on behalf of a friend, who mentions that his current RT window is due by 21 December 2015. He added that he is able to only clear around 11 or 13 out of the 20 sessions.

He is enquiring if the latest RT system is able to request for an extension? Or will result in being charged instead?

We await your humble reply. Thanks!

latest system would have indicated his window closing period which i believe is 21 Dec. It is your friend's responsibility to clear his window during his 12 months period. Take due note that RT window under the new system now has been extended which gives no reason for not able to clear.

Being charged should be an unavoidable situation.

for further inquiries, do contact NS hotline

This is not true, tested and proven.

If you miss any RT booking, just rebook. Rinse and repeat.

I believe the only criteria to not get charged is either:

a) complete all 19 sessions within your RT window

or

b) pass IPPT.
