Just going to throw this out there. I personally think you're looking into it too much, the more you start concentrating on what you need to get for the pass then there's more chance of you doing the bare minimum to pass.

Just go into the PRMC and set your minimum goal as the top scores, aim to max everything. Don't get caught up in the number game and get side tracked from the actual situation. You're there to show the PRMC team why you deserve to be a Bootneck, if you can just endure hangin out for a couple of days then you'll get a place in RT and you get to enjoy hangin out for 32 weeks

Fully agree with Ronny on this one - once the scores are known, people start aiming for minimums rather than maximums and invariably fail the RMFA as they underestimate the PRMC as a whole.

So a while back I saw a thread with people's speculations as to the scoring system for the gym tests. I managed to find the official scoring system which may be of some use to you all, of course you'll all be aiming for max points on the day but no harm in seeing how you measure up now!

Will they just kick you off the bar past 16 pull ups and stop the shuttle at 15/5?

Lads are they still using this scoring system on ROP with the pass still at 200 points? Cheers all, @Ninja_Stoker @Chelonian @Johnny_Anonie @Rob20
Just train for maximal scores, let those on their end do the scoring and you just focus on smashing every single test, personally I'd hate to know the mark sheet for a test, it makes you think it's easier than it is..

Agreed however there may be lads who are performing below the benchmark and so may need to kick their training up a notch if for instance their scores are actually lower than required.

Let them worry about that if they're under performing. Focus on yourself and has been said, aim for maximums and you'll be fine.
