Medical screening stations

Medical screening stations

There are six stations in the medical screening process and they will take about 2.5 hours to complete. Should there be any abnormalities detected as you go through the respective stations, you may be asked to go for a further medical review.

You will be medically graded in accordance with the Singapore Armed Forces Medical Classification Guidelines and assigned a Physical Employment Standard (PES) grade. Your PES is one of the considerations to determine your deployment during your full-time National Service. You will be able to check your definitive PES on eHealth if you are not required to attend any further medical review in a month’s time.
