APWT is a test that every soldier should take once a year and reach a certain standard.

Shots are fired from a variety of ranges and firing positions, (100,200,300m)and in the case of the infantry (using the SA80) 400m. For the standard test 50 rounds are used, those with iron sights need to obtain a score of 39/50 to pass, those with SUSATs 42/50

In the days when there were butt parties the NCO IC Butt Party could, how shall we put it, ensure that the crap shots, on the promise of a crate of beer or two's up on the newest porn film, get a pass standard score.
