hi all, need some advice here,
My NS callup for ICT is from 04th(mon) to 23rd(sat), and it will be my first ICT after uni. However I have just received notification of conditional admission into a part time Masters programme in a local U, and the condition being that I must attend a compulsory orientation and teambuilding session on 22nd and 23rd.
The 2 days will clash with my last 2 days of ICT.
My questions are
- The training program for the ICT is not up on the ns portal, but looking at past ICT callup for the same length as my callup, the last 2 days are "cohesion program" and "AAR/outprocessing" respectively. Are the last 2 days of my ICT callup likely to be the same?
- is it possible to ask for full 2 day timeoff or early out-processing for the last 2 days of ICT?
- IF timeoff is not granted, and the Masters programme doesnt allow me to skip the orientation session(have not called them since its the weekends), what are my other choices if I really want to join the Masters Program?
As mentioned, it will be my first ICT so not sure what to expect or what is possible/not possible. At the same time, I have put in a lot to get admission into the program, including leaving my previous job in preparation for the entrance test and other admin for admission into the Masters Program, and the program would be very helpful for my career switch, thus I really really do not wish to miss the program. Appreciate any feedback..thanks!!
