... As I understand it, your PT scores will also have an impact on different clubs you may want to participate in. For example the CWT will only take 8 of the top PT people each year?
The extended scale only comes into play when you have maxed (scored a 100) on each of the 3 APFT components. If you don't max on all 3, you cannot use the extended scale. I believe that for WP for a male 17-21, the push up max is 71, the sit up max is 78 and the 2-mile run max is 12:45. You get 1 point for every push up and every sit up over the max up to a maximum total of 125 for each. For the run, you get 1 point for every 6 seconds drop in time up to a total score of 125. The highest achievable score at WP is a 375. A score of 375 for a male 17-21 requires 96 push ups, 103 sit ups and a 10:30 2-mile run.I thought the max score was 300. Could you explain how they score the APFT at USMA? I'd appreciate that information!
The CWT try outs consist of a physical component, an interview and a shooting evaluation component. It starts with the physical component. This year, Day 1 consisted of 5 hours of physical testing. They started the day with 41 candidates and by the end of Day 1, they had 17 left who made it through to the interview phase.I was just wondering about both. I know the prep schools have "Ranger Challenge Teams" that compete across the country to qualify to come and participate at Sandhurst. I think they use the APFT and while a 300 is max there is an "extended scale" if you are able to go past the top scores. I think knowing the top scores just gives you something to shoot for and compete against.
