    I took my CFA today and did fairly well. I was above average in all categories except for pushups. The average male pushups is 63, and I only did 50. I understand anything less than average scores may be disqualifying, however is 50 pushups very bad? Is it possible they will ask for for me to retake the CFA. And if so, when will they notify me that I will need to retake it? I'm just really worried about it since I have been preparing for this for a long time, and this is a very low number of pushups compared to what I have done in the past.

    You should be fine with 50 if you have solid scores in the other categories. It was a couple years ago, but I got in with fewer pushups than 50.

    Does anyone know a disqualifying score for basketball throw? I was above average on everything except that which was 58 ft. with the average being 67 ft. I think. Is this ok?

    Did you submit the scores? If yes, it's already done, so stop worrying. Set your next target, and get after it.

    For push-ups, 50 isn't terrible, but it isn't great. Keep working on them.

    CFA isn't the biggest portion of your application. If you messed up, make sure you are very strong in other areas. And make sure if you get an appointment, you are physically fit for BCT.

    Do minimum pass/fail scores exist? And how is the CFA considered in regards to the whole application? What are the average scores for each component? Thanks guys.

    There are minimum scores, however, they are not published. Basically shoot for the max score!!

    50 isn't a bad score at all. Plus wherever you go, you will improve from the pt they give you. 50 is a workout for me.
