    What is a good PFE score for admission? I took it at AIM and got a 200...Should I retake it again. What is the average score that applicants get?

    CADET PFE STANDARDS

    All cadets at the Coast Guard Academy are required to pass the PFE at the beginning of each semester. The standard for graduation and commissioning is 200 points and cadets should always strive to achieve this score. Any cadet who scores below 165 points will be recommended for suspended disenrollment and may be recommended for immediate disenrollment based on previous PFE performance. There is not a prescribed minimum performance for each individual event on the PFE; only total scores are assessed.

    285-300 Max Club
    258-284 A
    222-257 B
    200-221 C
    165-199 D
    0-164 F


    New cadets take the PFE during the first week of Swab Summer. Cadets who score less than 130 points on this first test are normally disenrolled. By the end of Swab Summer, usually the third week in August, new cadets are expected to score at least 165 points. Cadets unable to achieve this score by the end of the first academic semester, usually the second week in December, are normally disenrolled.

    Consequently, an applicant who cannot attain a score of at least 130 points will not receive a full appointment. This standard may be raised based on the competitiveness of the applicant pool and the needs of the Coast Guard.

    A good PFE score is the best that you can do. If you think you can do better, take it again. If you know that you have done your best, don't.

    A score of 200 is average, grading as a "C" - if you think you can do better, take it again.

    The average PFE score for the Early Action appointees for 2013 was 210.

    For your information and comparison, the following is a table of mean performances by the Class of 2012 from their initial Swab Summer Physical Fitness Examination in July 2008:

    Event Men Women
    1. Cadence Push-Ups 38 25
    2. Two Minute Sit-Ups 76 70
    3. 1.5 Mile Run 10:10 12:55

    200 is the commissioning standard so anything above that is fine
