It also serves as a precedentto demerits should the receiver continue his misconduct.A bang has no bearing on a non-officer’s grades. Instead, it instills discipline through physicaltraining. A bang incurred by any one of the members of a platoon will be reflected on the wholeplatoon. It may be removed through the performance of any of the following: (1) seven [7] repsof push-ups/sit-ups/any exercise that is related to the aforementioned routines, (2) one [1]minute squat/plank/any exercises that is related to the aforementioned routines, or (3) one [1]lap around the oval, or any exercise that is related to the aforementioned routine.Any officer can issue a bang to a deserving non-officer. He who issued, however, must informany officer of the platoon affected that such bang was issued. If no such notice was given, thebang is considered invalid. Otherwise, it is considered valid and executory.A bang does not expire, nor does its number increase after a certain period of time. Theperformance of a bang, however, must be done at the soonest possible convenience. Theconduct of which will be at the discretion of the presiding officer.Examples of grounds for the issuance of a bang are, but not limited to: (1) unsatisfactoryperformance while in formation, (2) violation of minor school rules and policies, and (3) violatingthe haircut rule for the first time.An officer may give as many bangs as he wishes, provided that these are given with a validreason, and that the number of bangs is proportional to the severity of the offense.A non-officer who feels that the issuance of a bang is invalid, uncalled for, or abusive may talkto the officer concerned for clarification. If he wishes to challenge it, he may talk to that officer’ssuperior, or to any of the members in the Batch’s High Command. Any decision that the HighCommand will reach shall be final and executory.DEMERITSA DEMERIT is a corrective measure that is given to officers, non-officers, or group of non-officers as punishment for any and all misconducts which constitute such.

Its purpose is to instill the discipline, the responsibility, and the senseof justice necessary in maintaining the unity of the platoon. A demerit is receiver-specific,meaning that a demerit incurred by any one of the members of a platoon does not affect thegrades of the other members of the platoon, unless otherwise specified.Any superior officer can issue a demerit to a deserving subordinate. He who issued, however,must inform the affected that such demerit was issued. If no such notice was given, the demeritis considered invalid. Otherwise, it is considered valid and executory.A demerit does not expire. However, for non-officers it doubles for every seven (7) days that itgoes unsigned by the officer who issued it.Demerits can fall under four (4) categories, namely, Class D, Class C, Class B, and Class A.CLASS D DEMERITS (1 – 3 demerits) are given to officers or non-officers who commit minormisdemeanors and/or omissions.

Its purpose is to instill the discipline, the responsibility, and the sense ofjustice necessary in maintaining the unity of the platoon. A merit is receiver-specific, meaningthat a merit incurred by any one of the members of a platoon does not affect the grades of theother members of the platoon, unless otherwise specified.Any superior officer can issue a merit to a deserving subordinate. He who issued, however,must inform the affected that such merit was issued. If no such notice was given, the merit isconsidered invalid. Otherwise, it is considered valid and executory. Page 3 of 4

Meaning, it does not stack. Should the officer feel that thesubordinate deserves more than three (3) merits, he may have the move approved by the CorpsCommander. However, it shall be the Corps Commander who will sign the subordinate’s tickler.An officer or non-officer who feels that the issuance of a merit is invalid, uncalled for, or abusivemay talk to the officer concerned for clarification.
