My aviation application checklist says that my APFT needs to be taken within 6 months when I submit my packet. My last one was in August 2020 with a score of 271. My CO won't allow me to take another to improve my score due to the Army Directive 2020-06. It pretty much states that the only exceptions to taking the APFT is if you're flagged for failing or haven't taken one. Has anyone else ran into this issue? If so how did you overcome it? Is the ACFT accepted as a valid PT test yet even thought it's not counted for record?
