The best way for your son to find out what APFT score they will give him is to ask his cadre at his battalion.
If I remember from reading my older son's LDAC Eval (Had to find something to read on the 3000 mile drive to Alabama) there were spaces on the eval sheet for the first APFT and last APFT score. Not sure how they arrive at a final score when the first test is failed.
From your post, it sounds like they have the new LT's doing the grading again. There were some photos of LDAC and the APFT earlier this summer that seemed to show the NCO's doing the grading, maybe that was just for the cameras. I really wish they would switch to NCO grading, so do most NCO's I've spoken with.
Best of luck to your son.
