The Navy PFT score is determined by averaging the scores of the three fitness events. To find the average, we add the scores together, then divide by 3. 85 + 65 + 55 = 205. 205/3 = 68. This sailor would receive a PRT score of 68, which we can see on the below chart is categorized as "Good (Medium)." To graduate boot camp, a sailor needs an overall category of "Good (Low)," which means their average in three events must be 60 points or greater.
