The standards are as stated. This is an "entrance" exam. You will improve during cadet years in the various requirements in the Physical Development program, and continue on during active duty where the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) becomes the test. This three-part test will be introduced to you in your cadet years. The max for push-ups is 71, 78 for sit-ups, and 13:00 for the two-mile run and must be passed at the minimum standard level in order to graduate. These scores are weighted/adjusted according to age and gender. Of course, many reach beyond the max to beat the standards, while, unfortunately, many others struggle to meet the MINIMUM standards.
