Army fitness testing

The Mail on Sunday claims that that the Army is dropping a pass or fail fitness test and replacing it with one that has a 0 to 10 scale.

An Army spokesperson said:

Soldiers have to meet demanding fitness requirements so they are fit for role and that is not going to change

Anyone failing to meet the Army’s high fitness standards will, as before, have to undertake remedial fitness training.

Using a 1-10 fitness scale provides a better indication of overall fitness.
