Pre-Enlistee IPPT
and BMI



Pre-Enlistee IPPT and BMI

Other than your Physical Employment Standards (PES), your Pre-Enlistee Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT) scores and Body Mass Index (BMI) will play a part in the type and duration of the basic training you will go through as a recruit in each of the uniformed Services you could be assigned to (Singapore Armed Forces, Singapore Civil Defence Force or Singapore Police Force) for your full-time National Service (NS).

PES A or B1

If you are medically graded PES A or B1, you will enjoy an 8-week reduction in your full-time NS duration if you attain 61 points or more from the three Pre-Enlistee IPPT stations (with a minimum of 1 point from each station) at least two weeks before the Physical Training Phase (PTP) enlistment in order to qualify for direct basic training. Otherwise, you are required to undergo the 8-week PTP.

Other PES B, C or E

You are not required to take the Pre-Enlistee IPPT as you go through a modified basic training programme which does not have the component of PTP. Thus, you do not qualify for the 8-week reduction in your full-time NS duration.

Find out what each PES means and the different types of basic training.

The three Pre-Enlistee IPPT stations are:

Step 1: Sit-ups

Basic fitness component:

Abdominal strength and endurance

Maximum 25 points

Step 2: Push-ups

Basic fitness component:

Upper body strength and endurance

Step 3: 2.4km Run

  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Lower body strength and endurance

If you are graded PES A or B1, you will be exempted from the 8-week Physical Training Phase.

If you are graded PES A or B1 and attain 61 points or more from the three stations, you will be exempted from the 8-week Physical Training Phase.

You do not have to take the Pre-Enlistee IPPT separately if you have taken the modified National Physical Fitness Award (NAPFA) test in a Junior College, Millennia Institute, polytechnic or the Institute of Technical Education. The results of the three Pre-Enlistee IPPT stations from the modified NAPFA test will be transmitted to us.

Book your Pre-Enlistee IPPT

If you are not studying in a Junior College, Millennia Institute, polytechnic, or the Institute of Technical Education, or if you want to re-attempt your Pre-Enlistee IPPT, you can do so at Toa Payoh Stadium every Wednesday (except Public Holidays).

Tests at Toa Payoh Stadium are conducted strictly by appointment only. A booking must be made via the NS Portal latest by Tuesday, before 12pm in order to take the test at Toa Payoh Stadium the following day. Please note that:

  • You are only allowed to make one booking at any one time, but you can take your Pre-Enlistee IPPT as many times as you like, until the last Wednesday that is at least 14 days before your enlistment. For example, if you are going to be enlisted on 19 March 2018, you must attempt and pass your Pre-Enlistee IPPT latest by 28 February 2018 to be eligible for the 8-week reduction in your NS duration.
  • If you have already received your Enlistment Notice but you re-attempted and passed your Pre-Enlistee IPPT before the deadline, we will send you another Enlistment Notice with a new enlistment date.

Pre-Enlistee IPPT results are valid for one year after the test. We strongly recommend that you book and attempt your Pre-Enlistee IPPT at Toa Payoh Stadium after receiving your PES. You should train for your Pre-Enlistee IPPT to avoid injury.

Your BMI and basic training

The BMI is a measure used to determine whether you are at a healthy weight for your height. You can calculate your BMI using this formula:

bmi-formula-kg-m
bmi-formula-kg-m

If your BMI exceeds 27.0, your basic training duration will be 19 weeks. This basic training programme is designed to help obese recruits improve their physical fitness progressively while equipping them with basic soldiering skills and knowledge. You can use the BMI calculator below to compute your current BMI index.
