Wednesday's article ("SAF soldiers' IPPT likely to change") was speculative and misleading.
The Committee to Strengthen National Service will not be reviewing specifics of the Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT), which is a Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) matter as it deals with the combat fitness of our soldiers.
The SAF does review its training programmes periodically, including those for combat fitness, but has not decided on any changes to the IPPT format.

Our report on the likely IPPT changes did not say these were linked to the work of the Committee to Strengthen National Service (CSNS). The report appeared, however, on the same page as another story that quoted Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen's comments on CSNS deliberations.
