If a Soldier out of AIT/OSUT be flagged for failing their first APFT in their Unit?

Can a soldier be flagged after failing a apft, and the solider just came out of basic training ?

Discussion

BLUF: If the Soldier has completed AIT/OSUT then they must be able to pass the APFT with 60 in each event. See Reference below.

Reference:

AR 350-1

F-5l(6) All Soldiers must attain a score of at least 60 points on each test event or receive a “GO” on the alternate aerobic event. If a Soldier does not attain a minimum of 60 points in each event or a “GO” on an alternate aerobic event, the Soldier is an event failure. When a Soldier fails one or more events, the Soldier is a test failure. Exceptions include: Soldiers in basic combat training must complete a 3-event APFT near the end of
the course and must score a minimum of 50 points on each event to qualify for completion of BCT. No alternate events are authorized. Soldiers in AIT and OSUT must score at least 60 points on each event.
