As the parent of the candidate, I'd appreciate any advice. Like many, my son had trouble with the 'basketball throw' part of the CFA and ended up repeating that part of the test twice. Both those re-tests were at the request of the regional rep (sorry, I don't know the correct title). After the last test (IIRC, in January) that part of his admissions portal changed to green ('on file' for the CFA) However, last week when he called his regional rep he was told he didn't pass the CFA, and that they only changed him to 'on file' with the CFA on the portal so that he would not attempt to take the test again. Is it normal to receive no communication from the rep if you haven't passed the CFA? I know they don't release minimum standards for individual portions of the test, but is it policy not to tell the candidate that they didn't pass the CFA? When it was changed to green on his portal after the last try he assumed everything was O.K. with that part of admissions. I don't understand why my kid simply wasn't told 'you didn't pass the CFA' back in January. Thanks for any feedback - he'd still like to re-apply. And congratulations to all those who have received their appointments!
