Well I think they require Level 10 on the bleep test no? Which is Approx. 49.9 VO2 Max, and Level 13 is the max which is 60.4 VO2 Max.

well 10 min miles are easy! i know youll be tired by then but even after 40 mins you can still manage 10 min miles. When i was in year 7 in school (when i was 11 or 12) I used to get level 11
