    Basketball throw: 59ft.
    Pull-ups: 18
    Shuttle run: 7.7
    Sit-ups: 95
    Push-ups:75
    Mile run: 7.21

    I am worried the my basketball throw and mile run might fail me. Also, I have a chest cold and it is -20 below outside, so we had to complete the run on an inside track. This was mentioned by my PE teacher. However, I understand that there are no excuses for my bad scores, and I am now very concerned that I might fail...

    No one here can tell you. Your BGO will know. However, it may take a week or more for your teacher to submit it, for USNA to review it, and for the result to appear in our system.

    FYI, IF you fail, the BGO won't know "why" you failed -- i.e., whether it was a particular event, a combination, etc. Your RD can help you on this.

    As an aside, I think it unlikely that you failed with those scores. Your mile time could stand some improvement but my gut feel is that you passed. That said, if you believe you can do better, retake the CFA when you don't have a cold.

    You did not fail. I know for sure you "maxed" out on pull-ups and I am pretty sure you also maxed out on push-ups.

    Thank you for the information!

    I actually maxed the push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, and did one tenth of a second faster than max on the shuttle run. I really don't know what happened with the run. I usually run a 5:40. However, I was not practicing the test in sequence, so I believe I may have "burned out".
