Officer candidates will take a PFT at OCS prior to the start of training. Once inducted into training, candidates will take the PFT again prior to graudating OCS. Officer candidates must meet a minimum score of 225 to begin training while also meeting each of the following minimum requirements:
Male candidates: 8 pull-ups, 70 crunches, 24:00 3-mile run
Female candidates: 50 s flexed-arm hang, 70 crunches, 27:00 3-mile run
Obtaining the minimum requirements in all three areas will not satisfy the requirement to earn 225 total points. Below is the standard scoring chart for the U.S. Marine Corps to determine a score on the PFT.
