How to Calculate an ACFT Score
The Army Combat Fitness Test, or ACFT for short, is the Army’s fitness assessment. As you might expect, the U.S. Army requires a minimum level of fitness and ability for all Soldiers, in addition to meeting strict height, weight, and body fat requirements.
The test standards reflect the physical demand of a combat environment and the requirements of various MOS and unit requirements. Early versions of the ACFT used a physical demand category rating for the outcome, but recent iterations of the assessment have been updated with a pass/fail result.
The ACFT consists of the following six events:
- Three-Repetition Maximum Deadlift (MDL)
- Standing Power Throw (SPT)
- Hand-Release Push-Up (HRP)
- Sprint-Drag-Carry (SDC)
- Plank Hold (PLK)
- Two-Mile Run (2MR)
In previous versions of the ACFT, Soldiers were required to perform the leg tuck event, but effective April 2022, the latest version of the ACFT has removed the event entirely. Soldiers must now complete a plank hold for the core-strength assessment event.
Four alternate aerobic events are available to Soldiers placed on “permanent profile”: a 2.5 mile walk, 12 km stationary bike, 1 km swim, or the 5 km row. If a Soldier is placed on “temporary profile,” he or she is expected to recover and recondition prior to taking the standard events of the ACFT.
The Army’s minimum passing standard requires a Soldier to score a minimum of 60 points in each of the six events. The maximum score is 600 points, which can be achieved by scoring 100 points on each of the six events.
To calculate your ACFT score, complete each event, and use the standard score chart below to see the points awarded for the results of each event.
Add all of the points for each event together to calculate the total Army Combat Fitness Test score. A minimum of 60 points in each event are required to pass, regardless of the Soldier’s total score.
Scores shall be recorded using the Army Combat Fitness Test Scorecard – DA Form 705.
The newest version of the ACFT is also normed by gender and age group for performance, as shown in the scoring scales below. Previous versions of the ACFT did not incorporate age and gender into the scoring.
If a Soldier fails the ACFT, he or she is flagged, and unit commanders suspend favorable personnel actions. If the Soldier who fails the ACFT is enrolled in a Professional Military Education (PME) course, he or she will be removed from the course. Failing the ACFT instantly renders a Soldier ineligible for promotion. Failing two consecutive ACFTs initiates the process of administrative separation at commander discretion.

ACFT Implementation Timeline
The ACFT implementation timeline spans two years, from April 2022 to April 2024. Soldiers began taking diagnostic tests in April 2022, and Regular Army (RA) and U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) began taking record tests in October 2022.
The Reserve Component (RC), which includes Soldiers in the Army National Guard, begins taking the ACFT for record in April 2023, and RA/USAR must have a record test on file by April 1st, 2023. The RC has until April 1st, 2024 to file a record test.
Effective October 1st, 2022, RA and USAR will take 2 ACFTs per calendar year, with no less than four months between each test. The RC will take the ACFT once per calendar year, with no less than eight months between each test.
