Technically, yes. A Soldier must still attain a minimum passing APFT score, the minimum points required to get integrated onto the promotion standing list is 40 points for recommendation to SGT  and 15 points for recommendations to SSG.  Any Soldier the promotion authority identifies as having potention for promotion (with a passing APFT) will be added to the list regardless of their points.
