Hi, ive got my PJFT in 2 weeks and i am aware that they will check my BMI.
I have been told that i have to be under 28.0 to pass, however, i play rugby alot and my BMI is 30.9. I am worried this means that i am an automatic fail on my PJFT.
Will this happen?

If you were passed fit at the medical examination with a BMI over 30 then you should be OK. If however you now have a higher BMI than when you were passed fit at the medical examination it is possible you may be knocked back.

My medical took over a year to sort out, i am almost 100% positive that my BMI will have increased by a fair bit

Hmmn. Presumably, your BMI was measured many moons ago but you were advised this week that your BMI needs to be under 28. Something seems rather obvious.
