How to Calculate Your PFT Score
The USMC Physical Fitness Test, or PFT, is the Marine Corp’s fitness assessment. The Marine Corps requires all marines to complete the PFT once per year to assess their physical readiness.
The test standards set a baseline physical standard based on a marine’s age and gender. The outcome of the test is an overall point score and performance class.
The PFT consists of three components: pull-ups or push-ups, abdominal crunches or plank hold, and a 3-mile run or 5k row. For each component, marine’s can choose their event.
Beginning January 1, 2023, all Marines will be required to perform the plank hold and abdominal crunches will no longer be an allowed alternative.
Marines need to score a minimum of 40 points on each event and achieve an overall score of 150 points.
A marine can score a maximum of 100 points for each event. However, only 70 points can be achieved for the push-up event.
To calculate the score for each event in the PFT, refer to the official standard, which outlines the points and performance level based on each event’s results.
Also note that the scores for the plank event have been updated to account for the updated minimum and maximum scores for 2022. The maximum plank score is now 3:45, reduced from 4:20, and the minimum score is now 1:10, increasing from 1:03.
PFT Performance Classes
The following chart shows the performance classes based on the number of points achieved in the PFT events.
|235 – 300||1st Class|
|200 – 234||2nd Class|
|150 – 199||3rd Class|
|0 – 149||Unqualified|
How to Calculate Your CFT Score
The USMC Combat Fitness Test, or CFT, is the Marine Corp’s combat readiness assessment. The Marine Corps requires all marines to complete the CFT twice per year to assess their combat readiness.
The CFT consists of three events: movement to contact, ammo can lifts, and maneuver under fire.
The score on the PFT and CFT is important to a marine’s career and has a direct impact on their promotion potential.
