I am totally new to all of this, so please forgive my ignorance from the get go. I have not seen a minimum requirement for males to pass the CFA except for when the candidate has to pass the medical examination. Documents I have seen say that the navy/air force just either issue a pass or fail for the candidate. If this is so, I am wondering how this is scored in the overall composite score for the candidate...On the contrary, I have seen other documents that deem a candidate competitive if they can achieve certain goals and maximums that one can achieve for the CFA. Obviously I am missing pieces to the puzzle...can anyone help me out? Is the CFA a pass or fail-or is it scored?
