So I was told if I don’t pass my pt test tomorrow I was going to be discharged with other than honorable.

As far as I’m aware I’ve only been counseled once over failing pt

I have one counseling for being late once

And during AT they sent me home last year because of medical issues.

Is there anything I can do to extend my record pt test date or get it bumped up to a higher discharge. The internet I’ve read says people don’t get this low of discharge for pt failure alone.

Here is the problem: After reading this post and some of your other posts when checking out your profile, I have determined you to be a quitter. This is why you can’t pass the APFT or ACFT, you have no heart or drive. Neither one is even that hard. I’m almost 40 and got a wild hair last month, so I got shit face drunk and had some buddies administer a no bullshit APTF in the morning. I wanted to see how I would do compared to when I was 18. Holy shit wouldn’t you know I scored in the 70’s in each event at the 18 year old standards. I don’t work out much, I just maintain. What I do is give a shit and have heart and drive.
You more than likely will receive a general discharge, if you fail your test. So you have a choice, keep being a quitter, and get kicked out, or dig down grab your sack, your give a shit, and your heart and exceeded the standard.

COVID19 and EXORD 164-20 I believe it is has strict guidance on APFT. If you had a passing PT score that is to remain valid until further notice. Only the SM can request to take an APFT and that is to remove a flag from that SMs personnel file or if the SM requests a PT test. Previous PT scores remain valid for PME, Reenlistment, etc.

To further from my initial comment below is the title to the EXORD. If you have CAC access I recommend logging into MILSUITE and reviewing this order and passing on to your CoC. If you search for the S1NET homepage, they have done an amazing job posting FRAGOs, EXORDS, ALARACTS, and MILPERs that pertain to this very topic.

Again this is all under the assumption that you have a passing PT score for Training Year (TY) 20. Only you can request to take a record PT test.

FRAGO 1 and 2 to HQDA EXORD 164-20 Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) and Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) During The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak (FOUO), DTG: 142051Z May 20

OTH discharge for PT test failure is bull****. That being said, you will be flagged and may face other negative repercussions (e.g. loss of SMP status, medical board, etc.). I suggest that you talk to JAG and your ROTC cadre to understand the situation better.
