Failing/Defaulting Your IPPT
If you fail your IPPT, you may retake it multiple times within your IPPT window. Once your current IPPT window has closed and you still have not passed your IPPT, you will need to complete 10 sessions of mandatory NS Fitness Improvement Training (FIT) in your next IPPT window.
If you have difficulty passing your IPPT, you can opt to fulfil your annual fitness requirements by completing 10 sessions of NS FIT (inclusive of one IPPT attempt).
If you are not exempted and did not take your annual IPPT within your IPPT window, you will be considered an IPPT defaulter. You will be called back for investigation and may be subjected to disciplinary action. In addition, you are required to complete 10 mandatory NS FIT sessions in your next window.
Tip: Book and take your IPPT early. This is to reduce the chances of unforeseen circumstances preventing you from fulfilling your annual fitness requirements before your IPPT window ends.
