West Point standards are not the same as the Army.

Army Minimum - 50 per event (150 total)
West Point Minimum - 60 per event (180 total)

His real test will be at the end of Beast, the one in the beginning is simply for diagnostics.

That is correct. The minimum of 50 is for IET soldiers. All other Army personnel (active and reserve) who are non-IET soldiers must attain the minimum Army standard of at least 60 points per event.

Default Minimum is bad

You really don't want to be at or even close to the minimum. Most cadets strive for a perfect 300 score. In general sit-ups are the easiest, push-ups the hardest and future officers typically want to "lead from the front" on those training runs. The APFT, in my opinion, is biased toward smaller, less bulky people. The muscular weight lifters suffer in the 2 mile, but would be nice to have in your platoon to hump the SAW. Good luck!
