CFAT Rewrite
« on: October 07, 2012, 22:14:11 »
Greetings and Happy Thanksgiving to the users of this forum.

I have used the search function in an attempt to answer my own question I have not come across any information from previous topics. From what I have gathered, a third attempt at the CFAT is an extremely rare case. I noticed that one of the FAQ's on the forces.ca page has partially addressed this :

In order to be eligible to write the aptitude test a third time you must be registered in a substantial academic program at the post-secondary level (since the last time you wrote the test) and experiencing no apparent difficulty. With proof that you are successfully completing post secondary education Recruiting staff can submit a request for a file review and decision on your case.

So my questions are:  How often is this attempted, approved, and or denied?   What are your views on people taking the CFAT a third time? I recently consulted a recruiter and was told that they had only been there for a few months, so could not comment.

Thank you for your time

I wonder if this question has something to do with this from your previous profile?

Whole process seems to be a bit ...... mental.

Has anyone been allowed to rewrite their CFAT if they already qualified for all their trades the first time around? I wasn't feeling my best and I should have rescheduled my CFAT but went ahead with it anyways. I'm confident I can do much better if I wrote it again but I'm not sure if they'll let me for this reason alone.

... if you've qualified for everything you want to apply for, why would you want to rewrite it?
As a side note, if you were allowed to rewrite it (which I don't see being approved) and did worse, your 2nd score stands regardless of your 1st attempt being a higher score.

Your question to your recruiting staff should be "how competitive is my file with my current score?"
