My issue was slightly complicated.  The cfat is now a 2 part test.

I think you have been mis-informed or misunderstood and should go back to your recruiter with your questions. The CFAT is not a two part test.

My issue was slightly complicated.  The cfat is now a 2 part test. I was given a few days to prepare for a cfat that I already wrote. It seemed to me that I am being tricked into writing , rewriting the cfat with no notice. I still think they are going to make me rewrite ... without telling me I'm being forced to rewrite,  and the entire time being reassured that I will NOT have to rewrite. It feels ...like I'm being played.

Commander-cb,

You cannot be forced to rewrite the CFAT, applying to the CAF is an entirely voluntary process. In fact, you must specifically request to rewrite the CFAT, after a 30-day mandatory wait period, and provide justification on why you should be granted the opportunity to rewrite before potentially being booked to retake the test.

Sorry for my ignorance, as I am sure it has already been posted but I am new to the forum and still trying to navigate it. 

Can someone please tell me the complete layout of the CFAT?

i.e. How many questions in each of the three categories?
Are all three categories tested in the same group or are they separate?
How long for each category (or total)?
Is it written on paper or computer based?
...plus anything else crucial to understanding the structure.

Thanks

There is an NDA attached to the CFAT. All we can say is that there are spatial, math and verbal questions. There is a time limit. No calculators allowed. And it is used to qualify for your desired trade. Every trade has a different score.

In Regards to the CFAT
« Reply #2283 on: October 08, 2020, 13:43:26 »
Good afternoon,

About a year ago I took the CFAT, I did really well on it and I was able to select the trade I was looking for. However, I unfortunately was not able to get into RMC and I did not want to spend my time as a non-officer so I decided to go to a civillian university and get my degree there.

I'm currently finishing up my midterms for my first semester and I've had some extra time to think about my future after my undergrad and I thought about joining the military again. The first question that came to mind was if I had to do the CFAT again.

If anyone could answer this for me it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Best regards,

SirThisIsAWendys

You only need to redo the CFAT if your score is not high enough for your desired trade.
