Why Didn't I Get A Cycle 230 FMS Score?

Recommended Posts

A small number of Chief Petty Officer candidates did not receive a minimum Final Multiple Score (FMS) or exam Standard Score (SS) on their profile sheet. The reason - candidates who fail the exam do not get an FMS or SS. Even though Navy exams are not pass/fail, like a high school or A-school test, it is possible to "fail" a Navy advancement exam. To eliminate the guess potential, a candidate is removed from competition for advancement if his/her raw score (number of questions answered correctly) falls below the cut score standard for each paygrade. The idea is that Sailors can answer at least 1/4 of the items on the exam by guessing.
