Since COVID, number of slots per day have been drastically reduced. If want weekend slots, it is essentially a 2 month wait. For weekday slots, it is a 1 month wait for leftover weekday afternoons.

Better than a suay kia like me, booked for yesterday, turned up (and all the PTIs announced SORRY IN-PRO SYSTEM DOWN, so kena delayed 20 min), did everything halfway, then before the 2.4 km run, kena CAT1 till 10 am. Then tio cancelled asked us all go home fly kite knn wasted my time and effort.

The worst thing is the next available Sat for booking is in Jan wtf.

And today ended up being bright and sunny instead.

Okay end of rant, have a good day everyone~

You were able to complete all stations and pass otherwise? Or just there to do statics and clock it as attempt?

I have only about 2 months left to attempt IPPT, but this time of the year the weather... you know la. Hope they can let those of us there just to clock attempt do the 2 static and that'd be it, dunnid worry about the run even if it rains. The FCC I frequent allows participants to skip 2.4km if we so wish to clock an attempt, because we know we can't run for sh*t to pass.

Try Kranji FCC if your are worried of rain disrupting your session as all the 3 stations there are conducted indoors.

That's something I also cannot understand.
Pre-Covid, there will be like at least 1/3 free slots for IPPT on the day itself.
During Covid times where there's restrictions, slots are limited due to social distancing, that one I can understand.
But now where most restrictions are lifted, how come there's still a shortage of slots.
If you are talking about backlog, it should have been cleared few months ago, where the restrictions have been lifted.
They can't be expecting people to spend time training for IPPT, then go there to find out it's been cancelled, and need to wait another 2 months just to take IPPT again.

Maybe should complain and give feedback.

On Saturday, one fit guy in my group even more suay. He already on 2nd attempt liao, then kena cancelled again.

What's worst is that on that day, the in-pro system was down. Don't even know if we'll get paid for the time wasted.

During my last ICT few months ago during the Post-ICT feedback, someone did brought this up.
But I don't think things are going to change, seeing so many people complaining about this online.

On close observation, the IPPT booking in NS portal also looks quite suspicious. Yesterday certain slots still got 100+ vacancies. This morning, suddenly some of these slots are "fully booked" (faded off).

I'm starting to suspect that the actual number of vacancies in each slot is not 200, and they will just shut off that slot after about 70-80 bookings.

And from what I recall (from past IPPTs), the FCC I reported to didn't even have 100+ participants. More like around 70 people only.
