thanks, that helps a lotDisclaimer: I know nothing, but I think it is safe to say that you can:
Take the maximum score reps (and 2 mile run time) from the APFT and divide by two. Aim to achieve more reps than half of the maximums for the 2/2/2.
My scores were 30 push-ups in 1 min, 39 sit-ups in 1 min, and a 7:39 1 mile.
Half of the maximums for my age and gender on the APFT would be 21 push-ups, 39 sit-ups, and 7:48 mile. Therefore, my scores meet or exceed the standard that I personally held myself to (half of the APFT maxes). The assistant PMS who conducted my interview looked at my scores, asked "are these really your scores?" and I said "yes sir, they are". He then proceeded to give me a fist bump! Lol.
Just do your best and keep working at it. Best of luck to you.
+1 to this. The PFT is 150 points of The 1400, so while it counts it towards your whole person score it isn't the biggest part. Half the freshman last year at my daughter's school did not pass the APFT the first time. Do the best you can for the scholarship but don't stop there. The most important part is to be fit when you arrive on campus the end of next summer. It isn't as far away as it might seem...I got 4 year NROTC but we do the same PFT I think. My scores were something like 60 pushups, 95 situps and a 5:25 mile. Correct me if I'm wrong here but the PFT isn't a huge deal for the scholarship. They mainly just want to see that you're fit enough to perform in PT etc.
thank you, I am about at these scores!I'm an AROTC 4-year scholarship recipient and I got 40 push-ups, 45 sit-ups and a 5:45 mile. In my interview my interviewer told me he like my scores because they were realistic which showed I used good form. My (future) PMS told me this as well when I was down for a visit and said that lots of freshman cadets end up getting "no-rep" on many of their push-ups. So focus on form and then strength.
I'd say you are right - ish. Anyone who can run a 5:25 mile and knock out 60 push-ups without (apparently) training for a few weeks or even months, probably didn't have anything to worry about. However, if I could change anything about DS applications for what he tried for (AROTC, NROTC, AFROTC, USCGA and USNA), we would have spent more time on increasing his PT scores. Is there a big difference in scoring between a 7 minute mile and a 5:25? Or only being able to do 25 push-ups? Probably not. But losing those 150 points can make a big difference, and it's something you can improve on to prove your motivation.I Correct me if I'm wrong here but the PFT isn't a huge deal for the scholarship.
You are indeed correct. Thank you for clarifying my lack of clarity.....sorry for any confusion.Well, it's NOT for NROTC. It's for NROTC Navy Option. NROTC Marine option is an entirely different test and is, in fact, the same test that active duty Marines perform. You can find it through google. I just want to make sure no one is confused by the statement in the above post. I'm confident it's what the poster really meant to say.
