    I'm sorry if there's a better place to post this question, but I recently took the CFA and here's how I did (by the way, I'm a girl):

    Basketball throw: 32 feet
    Pull ups: 2
    Shuttle run: 10.05 sec
    Push ups: 35
    Sit ups: 63
    Mile: 6:03 min

    Probably-- you were low on some but your mile was good so that may help makeup for the below-average scores in the other events. I didn't realize there was such a gap in averages between WP and Air Force!

    For Females:

    AFA is higher in pushups 47 avg vs. 33 for USMA. (Note this indicates that average AFA score is only 3 off max)

    AFA mile avg is 7:35 vs. 8:06 for USMA.

    Situp avg for AFA is 78 vs. 68 for USMA.

    Other scores are nearly identical.

    Wow. Much higher competition I guess. Can you please let me know where can I see the rest of the averages?

    Don'the forget each SA may value one part of the CFA higher than another. The basketball throw is very important to WP, and maybe less so to AF / NA.

    As an army mom and a navy mom I can tell you that army counts push up form very strictly while navy doesn't. this may account for some of the variances.
