    What would the score for these be?
    How does this compare to the national average?
    Push-ups -50
    Sit-up - 50
    Mile - 4:55

    Those are numbers are conservative estimates of what I am capable of. I am taking the test today. The army hasn't sent me instructions or anything, but I have the form from the application site. Can I take the test without them sending me anything? I really need to take it today to fit it in my crosscountry schedule.

    there is no national average...those look fine. you really run a 4:55?? If you've got the form have someone give you the test and sign it. Scan it and email or upload it and you are good to go.

    Your PFA is a very small part of the scholarship process. You should be more worried about your interview, SAT scores, GPA and extracurriculars.

    Thanks you! And yes sir! My best 1 mile is 4:45 but I added some time for push up and sit-up fatigue.

    PT Test

    The PT test counts for 150 out of the 1400 points.

    Every point counts. For example, 30 seconds faster on the run equates to 10 additional points (unless you are close to maxing it)

    In order to get 10 more points on your board score portion, you need to raise your ACT score by 1 point (ex. 24 to 25) or the SAT by upwards of 40 points.

    Interestingly, there are no direct points out of 1400 awarded for GPA (as long as your GPA is over 3.0).

    So what would those numbers translate to out of 150 points?
