Primary Steps That Lead to the Navy Advancement Results

Note: Exam returns are currently on schedule, and NAC will start receiving substitute exams in early April. More than 115,000 E4-E6 Active Duty, Full Time Support, Canvasser Recruiter and Reserve answer sheets will be received and processed from February through late April.

After an advancement exam is administered, Sailors wait patiently for the results. Advancement candidates continue to ask when the E4/ E5/ E6 results will be released.

Typically, Navy advancement results from the spring cycle are released around Memorial day in May. What takes so long? There are seven primary steps that lead to exam results. Here is a snapshot of the process from exam administration through the release of results:

1. Exams are administered.
2. Fleet and shore ESOs mail answer sheets to Pensacola - historically, this process step takes six to seven weeks because substitute exams must also be counted and returned.
3. Before exams can be scored, 95% of the projected exam answer sheets have to be received from the Fleet to ensure that the Navy doesn't over promote (this includes late exams.)
4. NAC then sends a listing of how many test passers are in each rating to the CNO and community managers.
5. Enlisted Community Managers (ECMs) and manpower authorities determine vacancies and funding available.
6. Quotas are approved by CNP and forwarded to NAC
7. Final Multiple Score (FMS) cut lines are set and published results are sent to the Fleet.
