    I understand the ROTC scholarship fitness test includes a one mile run, and one minute tests for both push-ups and sit-ups based loosely upon the President's Physical Fitness Award. What I haven't been able to uncover is the sliding scale for performance results? Is there such a thing, or do you simply get max points for achieving the 85th percentile?

    Marklaker,

    For Army ROTC I would imagine that the board reviews the scores on the same scale as the APFT there is a scoring chart for the standard test. Most of the posters on this site are typically near max in the the 1 min provided for the situps and pushups with really no more than a low 7 min mile. As to what the board uses for this scoring, I think would be speculation to most of us here. I don't believe that the score cuts off at 85%. Just mho.

    I've never seen a published scale, so just do as many as you can and run as fast as you can. no need to lose sleep over this part of the application.

    I know I definitely didn't have the best scores for the PFT, and for some reason they still decided to give me a scholarship. Weird, right?

    If you can successfully get the Presidential Physical Fitness Award itself, I've got a feeling you're in great shape for the test. Frankly, though, make sure you're not just focusing on this single portion; the Army's looking for Student-Athlete-Leaders, not just Athletes (figured I'd throw that friendly reminder out there, although I'm sure you know)
