Ict deferment is different. We have to pay back. In this case, you decided not to go for ipt sessions. Now u wanna convert 20 rt sessions into 8 ipt sessions. From 28 sessions to 8 sessions. Is this fair if u can skirt the rules? Who in mindef can grant such exemptions?

Whats there to watch? Its not a matter of flexibilty but case to case basis. Just like ict deferment request leh. If I get the reduction, it doesn't mean the nxt person who follow suit will automatically get the same results. Worse come to worse, suck thumb and try to complete 20 lessons lor. Simple as that.

Worse come to worse, at the most suck thumb and try to complete 20 lessons lor. So what's there to watch?

Watching because We are working on precedence. More so for Case to case basis, as your situation is extremely common among NS MEN ...

Most probably they will ask u attend first, then apply for extension to complete 20 sessions.

Bro, Ipt is voluntary. U can choose to go for 1 session or 10 sessions. Beats better than to default the entire ippt and be charged right? Fair or not, its up to mindef. Like i said, if my reason is not valid, suck thumb lor.

Oh ok. I'm also getting my keys soon. So I will use that to 'exchange' 20 rt for 8 ipt. Fair to u? Of course it's up to mindef to decide. But if anyone dares to grant such exemptions, he/she better be prepared to face the backlash.

Definitely I will be attending the RT lessons first, extension is another solution for me.

Then is it fair that one who default their ippt gets charged and skipped the entire window giving the common reasoning?

Congrats to getting your keys soon but how soon? For me, its next month June as stated in HDB website.

1. IPT 1st lesson is IPPT assessment and yes, if you achieve the band target assigned to you thereafter.

2. Unless you are very sure you will MR in Aug, it would be best if you check with your unit on this.

1) Yes.

2) SAF work year ends on 31st March so u are not officially MR even if your last ict is in Aug. U only officially MR on 31st March 2014.

unless u r going overseas no way they will reduce your amount of RT sessions one la.. at the most they will extend your window for 2-3 more months and ask you to complete it.

if u wanna appeal for such thing it is possible though, but definitely not through NS portal.. only your own camp/unit CO has such power and can answer for it (this just my opinion though)

No worries bro, all settled. My unit called me up to ask for extension with FCC for RT end date (note that this is a one time request only). If end of extended date, still can't complete 20 sessions, then case closed.

For RT and IPPT, if required, u are supposed to get time off from your employer to attend. If required u can make the booking printout to give to employer.

Not too sure about arriving at 6pm since that time is for RT-IPPT. U may want to call the FCC to check.

All IPPTs must complete 2.4km. No more good old days where you can choose to drop out.
