    Navy SEALs are physically fit, mentally sharp, mature and resilient. Those men who want to become SEALs are screened to determine their potential to succeed in the community. In addition to meeting the basic requirements for enlistment or commissioning in the  Navy, candidates interested in becoming SEALs must meet rigorous physical and mental requirements. The physical fitness of a potential candidate is assessed using:  Pre-enlistment medical screening Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) Computerized-Special Operations Resilience Test (C-SORT) SEAL Physical Screening Test (PST) The ASVAB and AFQT are used to assess a candidate's mental sharpness and ability to learn. While the C-SORT is used to screen his maturity and mental resilience.  PHYSICAL SCREENING TEST: ADMINISTERED BY THE NAVAL SPECIAL WARFARE COMMAND USE | PST CALCULATOR To receive a Navy SEAL contract, a candidate must pass the SEAL Physical Screening Test, which consists of: Swim 500 yards (timed breast stroke or side stroke) - Rest 10 minutes Push-ups (max set in 2 minutes) - 2 minute rest Curl-ups: (max set in 2 minutes) - 2 minute rest Pull-ups (max set in 2 minutes) - 10 minute rest Run 1.5 miles (timed dressed in running in shorts and shoes) PHYSICAL SCREENING TEST   MINIMUM   OPTIMUM  Swim 500 yards 12:30 9:00 Push-ups 50 90 Curl-ups 50 85 Pull-ups 10 18 Run 1.5 miles 10:30 09:30 To qualify for a contract, a prospective candidate must meet the minimum requirements. The qualifying SEAL PST must be administered by a Naval Special Warfare coordinator or mentor. Prospective candidates can increase their chances of being selected for BUD/S and succeeding in training by having optimum PST scores. You can  judge your current level of fitness by taking the SEAL PST Calculator .   ASVAB: MEASURING YOUR ABILITY TO LEARN ADMINISTERED | AT MEPS The ASVAB is used to assess an applicant's mental sharpness and ability to learn. The ASVAB is generally administered at a Military Entrance Processing Station. The standard ASVAB contains the following subtests: Word Knowledge (WK) Arithmetic Reasoning (AR) Mechanical Comprehension (MC) Shop Information (SI) Automotive Information (AI) Electronics Information (EI) Mathematics Knowledge (MK) General Science (GS) Paragraph Comprehension (PC) Assembling Objects (AO) Verbal Expression (VE) - a scaled combination of WK+PC An additional line score, Coding Speed (CS), should be requested at MEPS, and the score can be included in the calculation to determine eligibility for the SEAL program. If the CS line score is not taken, only one set of line scores can be used to determine eligibility.  An applicant must score one of the following on the ASVAB:  1. GS + MC + EI = a minimum score of 170 -- OR -- 2. VE + MK + MC + CS = a minimum score of 220 -- OR -- 3. VE + AR = a minimum score of 110 and MC = a minimum score of 50 AFQT results are returned as percentiles from 1-99. A score of a 50 would mean you were in the 50th percentile or have an average score. The Navy requires an AFQT score of at least 35. Men who succeed at BUD/S traditionally have AFQT scores of 78 or  better. What if my ASVAB score isn't high enough? If you are not in the Navy, you will have to work with your recruiter to study for and re-take the ASVAB. If you are a fleet candidate, the Navy College offers ASVAB  preparation courses you can take while you arrange a re-test with your career counselor. You may be eligible for a waiver if you are a particularly strong candidate and your score is close to the minimum. Specifically, you will not receive a waiver if your Mechanical Comprehension (MC) score is more than five points below the minimum. If your overall ASVAB score is a few points too low, and you are not in the Navy, you will need to work with your Navy recruiter to seek a waiver through the Navy's Recruiting Command. Waivers are granted on a case-by-case basis. The applicants SEAL PST scores and strength of the overall application package will be used to make a determination of eligibility. If you're already in the Navy, submit your transfer package. It will be
