    So, on the following link afrotc.com/admissions/requirements-standards/fitness/ it shows the maximum scores for applicants up to age 24. Does this mean that I should shoot for those scores, and when i'm doing the fitness assessment, just stop when I get those scores? This whole thing is kind of confusing. Thanks in advance for the help.

    When you hit the maximums you should stop. The test is cumulative in nature so energy you expend on one event will affect your performance on the subsequent events. There are no extra points in AFROTC for exceeding the maximums. Good Luck.

    Please take this in the nature of semi-serious but good natured fun with which it is intended... but I must say I'm always mystified by folks who ask if they shout shoot for the maximums! :biggrin: Of course you should, but if you don't hit them its not the end of the world either. Do the best you possibly can. It can make a difference if your at or close to the max.

    Do the max scores on the PFT correspond with the max scores of the AFROTC Scholarship Application PFA?

    Do you mean are the scores the same for the PFT and PFA?

    If so, no. The PFT run max is a 9:12, and the PFA run max is a 9:42 (I believe).

    On topic...yes STOP.

    If it is 85 push ups, and you do 99, no more points will be awarded for 99, and meanwhile you spent energy that would have been used more efficiently for other portions.

    I don't know about the PFA, for AFROTC, but I can tell you regarding the CFA for the AFA, max everything, yet bust 1, you bust the entire exam.

    OBTW, remember the PFA for AFROTC the PFA is a small percentage for the WCS. It can be a make or break if you are on the cusp, but if your PAR is low, you can max the PFA and still get a TWE.

    Does anyone know the max score numbers?

    The testing form does not indicate any max scores. Here is what it states:

    Thanks everyone for your help!

    As you noted, the max scores are not published. No one knows what they are. As they say, do your best.

    In response to the scores to the PFA, I have some numbers that may give you an idea. (NOTE: these are not the max scores, but are solid scores for PFA).

    I went to Penn State over the summer and set up an appointment to meet the cadre of both the Army and AF ROTC units.

    In response to the AF question, the admissions officer who I met with gave me these numbers as good scores on the PFA:

    1.5 mile - 12min 50s OR less
    Push ups - 40-45
    Sit ups - 35

    Hopefully this helps for you/anyone else who is interested!

    Are you a female?

    An almost 9 min mile is not a strong run for a guy. Our DS always aimed for a 7 min. mile. or @ 10 min 30 seconds for 1 1/2 miles
