1. PFT Performance Requirements. To successfully pass the PFT, Marines must complete the minimum acceptable performance requirements in each event and achieve an overall combined score for their age group as shown in table 2-1. Marines must be made aware that the minimum performance (points) in each event alone, will not total the points required for a passing score. Additional points must be earned in at least one event in order to achieve a 3rd Class PFT or better, per age group. Failure to meet the minimum requirements in any event constitutes a failure of the entire test, regardless of the total number of points earned for all three events. Marines on light or limited duty will complete the two events that they are medically qualified to participate in, and will receive credit for a PPFT. Paragraph 2202 further details the PPFT requirements.

3. PFT Classification Scores. Table 2-2 shows the minimum score required, per age group, to earn each PFT classification score. Marines should be encouraged to continually strive to perform their best and not merely accept minimum performance.
