Want to know how much your physical and combat fitness tests will count toward promotion?

The Marine Corps has issued a handy chart that converts your scores on both tests into ratings, which factor into enlisted promotions.

In the past, Marines had to look at two separate charts, which converted physical fitness test and combat fitness test scores into respective ratings, a Manpower and Reserve Affairs official said. Now the same scores on each test yield the same ratings.

This chart affects all PFTs and CFTs taken since Jan. 1. Marines will use the two separate charts to calculate their ratings for tests taken in 2016.
