In this post, I would like to review the APFT Scoring. When it comes to APFT Scoring, there are a few things you need to know.
# 1 Scoring is on a 0 to 100 Scale
On the APFT there are three events: push-ups, sit-ups and a 2-mile run (assuming you don’t have a profile). These three events are graded on a 0 to 100 scale. To pass the APFT, you must score a minimum of 60 points in each event. The standards vary by age and gender so two people with the same number of repetitions could have a different score.
# 2 There is an Extended Scale
For the APFT Studs, there is an extended scale. This is when people go beyond the 100 point maximum. I’ve seen some select people score a 110 or 120 or higher in a single event. I’m not sure exactly where the APFT Extended Score stops, but it does go up at least 20 points.
# 3 The “Grader” Calculates Your Score
As you perform your APFT, your grader will keep track of your score. If you do a repetition wrong, it won’t be counted. At the end of each event, your grader will record the number of repetitions that you did (or record your run time) and will calculate your total score at the end of your Army Physical Fitness Test.
# 4 If You Fail One Event, You Fail Your Entire APFT
When you fail one APFT Event, you fail your entire test. And it doesn’t matter if you scored 100 points in two different events. If you score less than 60 points in one event, you fail the entire test.
# 5 If You Have a Profile or Alternate Event, You Can’t Max the APFT
If you have a profile or do an alternate event, you cannot max the APFT. The grader simply writes in your time and if you pass, you get a score of 60 points for that event.
These are the most common things I know about when it comes to APFT Scoring. If I left something out feel free to let me know by leaving a comment to this post. Also, if you have any questions, you can ask them below. Thank you.
