Hi, just come back from my 1st day IPT for this year. Very surpries on annoucement the PTI made today. After going through the 7 days of training, you have to book the IPPT test yourself and complete within the 5 training weeks. Meaning you have to complete the 7 days training, than you are allow to book IPPT. You are not allow to book IPPT in advance. You must complete within 5 weeks. Can you image it is very hard to book a IPPT test even one month before. With such a short period after training, how you can able to take the test?

BTW, I never heard there is such change of rules for IPT. Can someone enlighten me. :(

I am thinking of going back to RT next cycle. At least got time off and receive some compensate $$$.

I did IPT at Maju last year. Going through the same thing as you mentioned. BUT NOT THIS YEAR! They insist the IPPT must be taken with 5 training weeks. Just do the calculation. 7 training days, if you taken 3 days per week (Do take note you are not allow to take 2 days consecutively). You can complete the training with 2 weeks and 1 day. You got remaining 2 weeks to book and take IPPT test. The IPPT booking need to take a month in advance.

And worst thing is this month got CNY! :(

Yesterday no mood to run after hearing the news. Clock very badly on my 2.4km.
The PTI even encouraged us to fail the initial trial to show how much improvement we achieve during IPPT. :sweat:

AFAIK, those who managed to 'keng' were very persistent. No doctor can be 100% sure of their diagnosis. Even if they check that there should not be a problem, still keep to the story. MC will lead to longer MC, then finally letter to downgrade. So if you are really serious about it, you will need to keep visiting the doctor (outside, not the army doc). It will be a lot of money and time spent, if this is what you really want. But there are implications as well (Eg. Insurance; Other job prospects when they see you have a medical prob); not to mention that this may drag and you end up not completing your 10yr reservist even when you are 35+ or older.

Maybe its more worth it when you can enjoy the downgrade from 18yrs old onwards, otherwise, I find not worth the effort.

I took the other way out, ran almost everyday. 1km became 2km ... to 10km..
Ended up to be far fitter than I ever was with the PTI 'tekan' during NS days.
In the end I benefited from the fitness; not SAF (just get the mindset right) :)

Cheer up man! :)
