PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- The March 2019 Navy-wide enlisted advancement examination (Cycle 243) testing dates for Active Duty, Full-Time Support and Canvasser Recruiter Sailors who are advancement eligible to the paygrades of E4-E6 was announced in NAVADMIN 318/18, released Dec. 27.

The Navy-wide examination dates are March 7 (E-6), March 14 (E-5) and March 21 (E-4) for Sailors eligible to advance to the next-higher paygrade.  Examination results are anticipated to be released to command triads in May, prior to posting on the Navy Enlisted Advancement System (NEAS) website.

"Bibliographies for the March exams are updated and available for download on MyNavy Portal and the Navy Credentialing Opportunities Online (COOL) website," said Master Chief Electronics Technician, Nuclear Power (SS) Gregory Prichard, command master chief of the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC).  “When the Cycle 243 exams were created, each test question was tied to a specific reference and the bibliography is a compilation listing of all references used to create that specific exam.  With that in mind, I would recommend Sailors use only the official Navy bibliography sources for studying their exam.”

During advancement examination readiness reviews held at NETPDC, visiting E7-E9 Fleet subject matter experts (SMEs) in each enlisted rating ensure all examination questions can be linked to current references and publications, and they also link questions back to the individual tasks listed in the rating occupational standards.  As rating SMEs select questions for the examination, an examination bibliography is developed for that specific cycle’s exam, based on the source references used to formulate questions on the exam. 

The Navy Advancement Center (NAC) updates bibliography information as Fleet instructions and manuals change, and it is recommended that candidates check their bibliography a few times prior to the exam administration date to make sure they have the most recent bibliographies.  To download the bibliographies and an exam-specific topic list for the upcoming cycle, go to the NAC’s MyNavy Portal bibliography page: https://www.mnp.navy.mil/group/navy-advancement-center/bibliographies or the Navy COOL website: http://www.cool.navy.mil/usn, under the Find & Select Related Credentials, Enlisted tab.

This will be the final Active Duty E4-E6 Navy advancement examination that will consist of 25 professional military knowledge (PMK) and 150 job-specific rating technical questions.  The September E4-E6 exams will not include PMK questions, as announced in NAVADMIN 085/18.   As part of Sailor 2025 and Rating Modernization efforts, a PMK eligibility exam was created to provide greater emphasis on PMK and separate it from examinations on rating knowledge.  

Specific information on exam eligibility, security clearance requirements and performance evaluation date requirements are detailed in NAVADMIN 318/18 and in BUPERSINST 1430.16G. 

The NEAS website is available for educational services officers to verify and correct the list of eligible candidates for their command, and confirm examination ordering information.  The NEAS Web address is: https://prod-neas.ncdc.navy.mil/. Exam ordering information can also be found in NAVADMIN 318/18.

E4-E6 exam profile sheets provide candidates with information on how well they performed on each topic area, and detail individual final multiple score totals.  Individual Sailors may view and download their profile sheets at: https://prod-neas.ncdc.navy.mil/NEASRpts/Individual.aspx.  

Updated (post-exam) profile sheets will be available following release of advancement results to command triads in May.
