AR 350-1 states:
Soldiers in RC troop program units (TPUs) will take the APFT at least once each calendar year. A minimum of 8 months will separate record tests if only one test is given, with no more than 14 months between record tests. Soldiers that require makeup testing or re-testing for an APFT failure are exempt from the 8-month rule.
What is the para and page number for the source on the PT Test.
I need to see it.

This response is based on the information you provide. My comments do not represent the US Army or US government positions. Furthermore my comments should be used for information purposes only.
Can you fail a soldier for failing a PT test, if they intentionally missed BA so they didn’t have to take it. I recently attended a pre command course and this was brought up, but I haven’t been able to find it in the regulations.
I see no way you could fail a Soldier on an APFT if they never took the APFT. That would be like saying a person who meets body weight requirements failed the weigh-in because they were not present.
However, there is a comment in AR 350-1 Appendix G-9 that allows for special treatment of individuals that fail to take their APFT. Specifically it states:
paragraph G-9l. States:
If the Soldier fails to show up simply flag them and either bar them to reelisment or consider processing them for separation.
I a SGT in the Army Reserves. While there is no regulation for it; I have seen it many times where a soldier will not show up to BA and are given a failing APFT. Generally this occurs only because the soldier constantly tries to duck out of APFTs. They are not failed because they missed the test. They are failed because they were given a lawful order to take one.
