About the CFAT
The Canadian Forces Aptitude Test (CFAT) is a multiple choice test that assesses an applicant for entry into the Canadian Army.
The CFAT has a written and electronic version.
The exam can only be taken once, so potential recruits should practice as much as possible to ensure a good score. If you are feeling sick (especially if you are on medication that makes it hard for you to think straight) or not feeling well, you can reschedule your test beforehand. Don’t forget to wear contacts or glasses, if you need them. Allow yourself a lot of extra time to get to the testing location so you aren’t rushed. Get plenty of sleep before coming.
The CFAT is a series of multiple choice questions. You are allowed 5 minutes to complete 15 verbal skills questions, 10 minutes to complete 15 spacial ability questions, and 30 minutes to complete 30 problem solving questions.
