    What are the kinds of numbers it takes to pass the CFA in each event?

    When taking the CFA, you mustn't have the "I need to pass mentality". You need to have the "I will do everything I can to Ace the CFA because it will make me more competitive" mentality.

    Very unlikely, but you never know whether or not that one extra pullup will make the difference.

    That feeling sucks...

    My CFA was brutal. I puked like never before right before I ran the mile haha. My instructor was like(as I was puking): "30 seconds of "rest" left"

    yeah man, i got my fully qualified letter a few weeks ago

    my mile wasn't absolutely terrible, but it wasn't good either. I was like 7:15

    My other scores were good though

    When I was training for my CFA, I purposely took a few full mock tests to inure my body to not puke during the real test haha.
