Scoring on the PFT is clear enough, but I've been unable to find any explanation of the three classifications. What do the classes mean? What are the consequences of being in a particular class?

3rd class is minimum performance and your Evaluation would reflect and this may also adversely effect promotions, transfers etc. and may also require participation in a structured Physical Fitness program in other words if you are a 3rd class you will be monitored for improvement. Second class is marginal and may require monitoring 1st class you are doing what you are supposed to do and a top notch Marine. I was not a marine but being a sailor I had to administer the test for shipboard Marines. A 1st class Marine is who you want covering your back.

I tried to figure out the requirements for a 70 years old male and I think the following is fair.

Ab crunches - You pass if you can get out of bed without help!

Run - You pass if you can walk to the kitchen.
You get double points if don't have to stop in the bathroom.


Total points needed = 2

Since we are not allowed to differentiate between male and female they have the same requirements!

Getting a first class PFT goes towards getting a promotion faster than if you got third class. There were no consequences on getting a 3rd class when I was in the Marines 2000 to 2005. If you could not make third class you failed and had to do remedial physical fitness program.

I was a Marine from 75-82, we didn't worry about the minimum score, just tried for the Max. 3 miles in 18 minutes, 20 pullups and 80 situps in 2 minutes. Never did get the Max.

I bet some of the guys in the Over 46 category do worry about the minimum. :-)
