  1. hi guy

    i am an army student nurse and will be qualified in 4 month .I am physically fit but unable to pass the bleep test or the 1.5 mile run .recently one of the officers told me that she would not be able to recommand me for promotion if i fail the bft.

    i would like to know whats the score on that and is there any policy that says u cannot get promoted if i fail the BFT.

    Your help is much appreciated
  2. This is an oxymoron if ever I've heard one.

    Why try and beat the system? You're a solider first, remember that and get fit.

    What time/score do you need?
  3. If you ain't fit your not going to get promoted, i echo what 1manriot say's, your a soldier first!

    Get your ass motivated and get running!
