BPFA question

#1
Could anyone tell me the answer to the following.

I have done my BPFA once on a recruit selction weekend. I got Red on the run.
I have managed to get the run time down and think I could pass it now so was happy to hear
I could do it again this weekend. However BPFA this weekend is a Beep Test instead of the 1.5 Mile run.

If I was to get Green this weekend would that go on my record as having passed the BPFA?

Yes

Yes it would. Just remember the BFPA is no more, it is now the Personal Fitness Test (PFT) and you need to achieve the old green standard of the BPFA to pass.

Its more in the name BPFA (Basic Personal Fitness Assessment and Personal Fitness Test.

An assessment cant be failed were as a test can be. The standards are a little higher 40 pressups and 45 sit ups in BPFA and 45 pressups and 50 situps in the PFT. No change in the run times.

Same standards for 40 + ?

SMR, the situation is that the old 'Green' standards for the BPFA are now the pass standards for the PFT. So, for a male under 30, the pass standard is: - 44 x press ups, 50 x sit ups and the 2.4km in 10mins 30. Note that this is not a change from the old 'green' standard so if you were told that you had a green pass before with 40 press ups and 45 sit ups, I'm afraid that you were lied to!

Also, there are several threads on this topic, I think in this forum and in Health & Fitness - look them up. You will also find the new MATTs documents on the British Army website. Hope this helps.

The old BPFA is a test the same as the new name would more adecautly explain in the title, I contributed to get the name changed to stop everyone going on about how it is an assessment not a test. Assesment is just another way of saying test, in principle it means exactly the same thing, well according to the dictionary it does.

As for the scores on the doors for the bleep test, under 30 male you need to achieve a minimum of 10/2 for a green (70 points) and to achieve 100 points you need to get to level 12 exactly.

The shuttle run/MST/bleep test is run between two lines twenty metres apart.

The starting speed is 8km/h and each minute the speed is increased by decreasing the interval between the beeps. (each stage equals one minute so you would progressivly do more shuttles in each level)
