Is taking the IPPT a pain to you?
Then here is a good news to all NSmen!!!

All NSmen should be happy to know that the Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT) for National Servicemen will be reduced from the current five stations to just three: A 2.4km run, sit-ups and push-ups. Which mean the shutter run, pull ups and standing board jump will be removed. I think a lot of people wouldn't mind doing push ups than pull ups. Or maybe that is just me...

I heard the aim of the changes is to get more NSmen to keep healthy as a lifestyle and also to help them pass their test.  We are still not sure when the changes will be implemented. The last time such changes to the IPPT format were made in 1982. 

The new test system will not require NSmen to meet a minimum passing mark for every station, Dr Ng said.There were be more age bands and a new scoring system. Instead of a pass mark for each station, points will be awarded and the combined points from the 3 stations will be used. This way, soldiers can make up through more sit-ups, if they are weak in push-ups and running, or vice versa.

The overall passing mark will remain "about the same as before" for Full-Time NSmen, Regulars and Awards, while some adjustments will be made based on past data for NSmen according to what was reported.

I'm looking forward for the new changes and I believed with this scoring system, more people will be able to pass their IPPT.

More details will be released by Chief of Army Perry Lim on Thursday.
