What are the maxes for all of the CFA events
I also see the averages, but the minimums appear to be a mystery
The minimums are not published.
You can go through a number of older threads and get an idea of what the minimums might be, but they are not published.
The goal is to get the maximum score on each segment.
They do not post the minimums. If you fail one portion, you fail the entire exam. If you fail the CFA, you will be notified to retake it.
Agreed. Just curious as they seem to offer flexed arm hang rather than pull-ups. Child can do some, but not the max. I assume any are better than hanging!
Follow the link posted above and go to the flexed arm hang part. USNA addresses this specifically... 1 pull up is better than flexed arm hang.
Try this Link here for the USMA CFA testing:
They publish "Average Performance Scores by Event and Gender" on Page #1
Those Averages would work for the USNA and the USAFA CFAs too.
One pull-up is considered a significantly better accomplishment than doing the flexed arm hang
It's May - there is a lot of time to work out and prepare for the CFA
There are plenty of threads on how best to prepare. My preference is P90x
The USMA forum has a thread 'oh know the basketball throw' which provides a lot of insight into that event which is typically the most awkward for someone to perform
And remember obtaining the average score is not the same as the average score of those appointed
Worth checking out, and mentioned many times on SAF:
Stew is a USNA grad, former SEAL, former USNA staff officer, who knows how to get you there.
You are welcome. Explore his whole website - great stuff.
Can you elaborate or quantify failing one portion ? Is it just not making the published "average" score for each test or something else ? Thanks.
The above link provides the Maximum scores per event
If you 'fail' one section, you have failed the entire CFA. For example, if your mile run is 23 minutes and you achieve a maximum score on the other 5 events - you will have failed the CFA. When asked to re-do the CFA, you will be required to re-accomplish all 6 events - not just the one(s) you failed.
Your entire approach is wrong if you are looking to accomplish the average in each portion of the CFA. (Search the threads on TWEs to see how people with exemplary overall scores for fitness/academics/sport/extra curriculars/etc did not receive appointments)
Not to say you won't get in by achieving 'average' scores, but it is stunning how competitive the entire process is.
