1) scout did not complete as much as the worksheet at home prior to going to camp -- research is often difficult to conduct at camp without computers & libraries;
2) scout did not bring the worksheet to camp -- MB counselors are not psychic and do not know what the scouts have completed prior to going to camp;
3) worksheets are not signed by scout leaders at appropriate spaces and requirements so that the MB counselors at camp know what has been observed by the SM (i.e., 20 days camping for Camping MB); and
4) the Scout is more ambitious that he should have been and attempted to complete more MB than was humanly possible.
There are a few other reasons such as scout physically unable to complete one or more tasks (i.e., small scout attempting to shoot for shotgun MB and unable to handle the weight of the shotgun).
