    You must stay in the pull-up position at all times, and may rest at the down position. So the answer is no.

    On the pull-ups can you go up once your head has gone below the bar, or can you only go up again once youre arms have been fully extended (180 debrees)?

    When we took the CFA at the Naval Academy and West Point, our elbows had to be down and lucked before we could go up again. But check with the guidelines.

    the test is scored in such a way that you do not need to max out on any event, in fact you could fail a certain event (for many the pull ups) and still pass as long as the rest of you scores are on par

    That score is phenomenal. Great job!
    You don't need to go over the max though...

    How? The instructions say you must stop once you max an area or am I wrong?
