Final Multiple Score (FMS) Needed to Advance

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Tony

In each rating, the Final Multiple Score (FMS) needed to advance depends on two factors, vacancies at the next-higher paygrade (quotas) and each candidate's FMS standing among peers. For example, 100 E5s in a rating take the Navy-wide advancement exam and are eligible to advance. With 25 vacancies at E6 in that rating, quotas would be set to advance the top 25 candidates based on their FMS rank order. 

The actual FMS of the Sailor who was ranked 25th will set the FMS cut score for advancement in that rating and paygrade. Quotas and competition change for each advancement cycle, so it's not possible to predict what the cut score will be for future advancement cycles. However, you can see FMS cut score trends by downloading the Navy's FMS calculator mobile application on your phone or tablet.
