Its just a fitness test to see how fit you are. They will launch this test in feb nex year, i.e. 3months interval.

WANT to know more about the bleep test?

The Multi-Stage Fitness Test, also known as the bleep or beep or shuttle run test, is often used by sports coaches and trainers to estimate an athlete's VO2 Max (maximum oxygen uptake).

The 'bleep' test involves running continuously between two points that are 20m apart. These shuttle runs are done in time to pre-recorded bleep sounds on a pre-recorded audio cassette. The time between the recorded bleeps decrease after each minute.

The test usually consists of 23 levels. Each level lasts 60 seconds. A level is basically a series of 20 meter shuttle runs. The starting speed is normally 8.5 km/hr and then increases by 0.5km/hr with each new level.

The audio tape used for this test gives a single bleep at intervals, which indicates the end of a shuttle, and 3 bleeps indicates the start of the next level.
