Hi, I am taking my fitness test for NROTC scholarship tomorrow and am concerned I have the wrong form. When on the website the fitness test instructions state I run a 1.5 mi. But the score sheet only has slot for 1mi. Am I looking at the right thing? Idk if it’s the correct sheet and which is the correct amount. If anybody could send me a PDF or lmk what you know it would be great!

The fitness test you take as an applicant (AFA - Applicant Fitness Assessment) is different than the one you take in the navy (PRT - Physical Readiness Test). As @Torero_dad pointed out, if you're ready for one, you're ready for the other.

** This is purely from personal (son's) experience*** If you are applying for a "National" Scholarship (ie: less than 30 college credits and NOT participating in NROTC currently) then you take the AFA (1 mile run). If you are currently participating in NROTC (in college) then you do the PRT (1.5 mile run). But as others have said if you are prepared for the 1.5 miles, then the 1 mile will be a breeze.

Addendum to all above:

Just read that the Navy Chief of Personnel Adm. John Nowell announced that the "new" Navy PFA's starting in January will consist of Push-ups, Planks (3 1/2 min max), and an optional Rowing Machine in lieu of the run. Don't think this will effect "applicants", but the article in the Defense Early Bird Brief by Military.com indicated all sailors and Officers will need to comply starting January 2021. I would imagine USNA, Great Lakes, and NROTC will follow suit so that incoming personnel are good with the new requirements. NROTC and USNA already require bi-annual passing of the current PFA.
