    What are the tests? Push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, obstacle course, and running? Is it a certain amount of reps per minute?

    I think I can do 50 sit-ups in two-minutes. I know I can do the push-ups. Including the run that's only three tests. The .pdf file has eight tests to fill out.

    There are 3 events in one test. You must score 60 points in each event to pass the test. For instance if you score 70 points in pushups, 70 points in situps and 59 points on your 2 mile run you will fail the test even though you have over 180 points all 3 events combined.

    Look closely at the card. You can be tested up to 8 times (seperate occasions) on one card. You'll notice under each test it has 3 events, Pushup (PU)raw score, situp (SU)raw score and 2 mile run (2MR). If for some reason you are injured on on profile there are alternate events that can be used, but you will not see that used in basic, AIT or any other school.

    Yes, but if you put in 30 minutes of decent PT 3 days a week you won't fail. It really doesn't take a lot of effort, and you don't have to be in great shape to pass, but sitting on your butt until the day of the test will mean certain doom.
