Go to www.ns.sg They have all the info there. Officially it is 7 high 3 low spread over 10 work year. Work year is from April to March. If one high and one low in one work year, will consider as only one high. 2 lows in one year will consider only one low. 2 highs in one year also consider one high. Under constitution, MINDEF can recall you for maximum 40 days per work year.

Yeah. Up to 40 yo. But with a difference. If complete cycle of 10 ICT by 40 or before, u get a cert plus all the tax benefits or wadnots that the govt give to NSmen or former NSmen (e.g GST Credit extra $100). If you reach 40 and yet to complete, you will also go into MINDEF Reserve but without those benefits.

My Sad Story
SAF didnt call me up until 7 years after my ORD. And I joined an Inf Bn who is on their 7th year ICT. I 30+ still have to chiong sua in Brunei with them.. peng man.. :angry:

Now that unit have gone MR, and I kena recycled into a new unit and this year will be my second ICT... last year first ICT have to dig shellscrape!

Including this year I wld have done 6 high keys. Hopefully next year will be my last... :sweat:

if you have completed 7 high keys, the unit might consider not completing the low keys and declare stand down.

Not true, i turned 40 and only did 4 high and 1 low key. 2 weeeks after my 40th birthday I received a letter discharging me. No more Reservist liao ;);)

If your unit completes cycle and you did not, and you are under 40 then the recycle you to another unit.
