    You'd probably do well to be shooting for 90-99% Cooper on the push and sit and at least 70-75% on the run. It doesn't seem likely that "passing" will do.

    Good luck!
    I'm going to be honest. I did roughly 40 sit-ups, 25 push-ups, and the 1.5 mile run in 13:00-14:00 minutes each time I tested (much better now... sub 12:00 coming soon). Not stellar by any means, but my test scores were always among the highest and I blew essays, report writing, and the oral board out of the water. I tested with three agencies and made it very far in the process with each. Two were prepared to hire me (and one did), and I was DQ'ed by the third because of a mistake on my part.

    Men tend to put more emphasis on strength, but you can always make someone stronger. You can't really make anyone smarter or change their personality... Just sayin... If your physical scores aren't the greatest don't be discouraged. Keep working and nail the rest of the process, you may surprise yourself.

      That's classic Sailor. I triple checked my stuff before submitting it. I didn't want to be the one(s) who missed out for something so stupid. Sounds like I am right around the same fitness level as you said you were. I won't let it discourage me though. I'll just do my damn best and see where it takes me.

          The funny part is the fact that the person in backgrounds has probably made hundreds of mistakes and typos on paperwork.

          Who doesn't make typos? And who doesn't look over their own work and see what they wanted to write...vs...what they actually wrote at one time or another?

              I agree with being picky. With that many people get rid of the ones who can't pay attention to detail.

                  Did your reliable source say how many individuals were called?

                          Just the physical test. Site says the written tests will be held on Nov 30th and Dec 1st.

                            Just got back from the physical. It is the fitness test only. Written tests will be administered in three sessions on Monday November 30th. They will extend the written through Tuesday December 1st if needed. Good luck to all.

                            FYI... the group I was in had about 40-50 people in it. After the test there were about 25 that passed.
