It is incredibly hard to fail BMQ. People get recoursed to a different platoon, learn from their mistakes and then graduate. Or people realize the military is not for them and drop out. Or people get injured and either leave or get recoursed to a different platoon once they are healed.
You will fail some things. BMQ is set up for you to fail certain things. They are teaching you things you may never have seen. You are not expected to get 100% on everything.
However is there some kind of benchmark I should meet so I know I'm going to do well on the fitness test. Like how many pushups, situps, running times, just so I know I have the physical capability to pass the test? Is there any kind of benchmark? Fitness for Operational Requirements of CAF...

I will tell you right now, you're going to fail on BMQ, but you won't fail BMQ... if that makes any sense. You're going to get things wrong, you're going to make mistakes, and its going to be confusing and frustrating at times, however, you're going to learn from it and overcome it. We're in the business of taking people and making them capable of overcoming hardships and accomplishing the impossible. Millions of your fellow Canadians have gone through BMQ and have accomplished it over the years, so its not impossible.
