I know it's 60% of your pma for the final. I'm just just curious how it works. I'm going in with a 3.90, how good are my chances if our final multiple is around 157?

for ur case Ull have a starting score of 115.  

Out of 175 u need to at least score 62 to be FMS 150

100/175 - .57 per correct question if we assume this is the baseline than ur FMS is 150.33  However if ur whole community does well on the exam ur FMS can be higher as well as lower if they all did poorly.

      Registration Validation Email


      There is still an issue where people registering do not receive the validation email once they sign up on this forum. If you do not receive and respond to the validation email, it will not allow you to become a member. Please check your spam boxes or ask your IT for assistance and whitelist NavyAdvancement.com if you are able to do so.  This is the message I see: "Member has not yet responded to registration validation email."
