Singapore Individual Physical Proficiency Test

Old Protocol: The test was introduced in 1979. After initial changes, the protocols 1982 until 2015 remained unchanged. Until recently, the Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT) had five stations: the chin-up, standing broad jump, 4x10m shuttle, sit-up and the 2.4km run. Participants undertook the test in army T-shirts, slacks and boots.

New Protocol: The testing protocol changed, with every soldier in Singapore undergoing a new physical fitness test from about April 2015.

The new protocol scrapped the chin-up, standing broad jump, 4x10m shuttle, and added push-ups.

So the the IPPT now composes the sit up test, push up test and 2.4km run.

Servicemen and women must achieve the IPPT standards set according to their gender and age.
