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

    there is no passing number. the academy has refrained from releasing any kind of rubric for the sole purpose that applicants would simply reach there and stop.

    the best approximation you can go for is the average score thats given in the prospectus, which is....
    Men/Women
    Throw 60/41
    Pullups 11/3
    Shuttle 8.9/9.7
    situps 80/79
    pushups 60/40
    mile 6:40/7:44

    If from what I'm told is correct, there is a minimum score for passing, such as 3 pullups and 8 minutes on the run etc.. However, "passing" and "competitive" are not the same thing.

    Max numbers are posted on their site, and that should always be your goal. not the "passing" level.

    Remember you have one shot and you should do your best. The AF OCCASSIONALLY allows a 2nd shot, but they decide who gets to re-take, and it traditionally is a candidate that they "like".

    There is no "true" pass level. CFA accounts for a specific % of he WCS. That score is how you win the appointment.
