Advancement Exam & Chief Board Results
& Final Multiple + Profile Sheet
On this page you will find information on the advancement exam and Chief's selection board results. Sometimes the Navy will move around the publication of the results to ease the burden associated with bandwidth on their servers so final results may not appear immediately in their final place.
For those who do not make it, it is a good time to take stock on how you prepared for the exam or selection board. Below I discuss a few points you may want to consider if you are trying to advance.
Navy Profile Sheet
Don't forget to use your profile sheet, quotas and CREO information to see how you compare with others in your rate. Your online profile sheet is available on this page. Make sure you look at the weak areas listed on the profile sheet. If the material is on the next bibs, you will know what area to concentrate on first! And that reminds me – study your weak areas first because it takes longer. As you approach exam time and study your stronger areas, you will see that you have covered more ground since it takes less time to study your strong subjects.
CREO & Quotas
One mistake sailors make is to wait for the Navy Advancement exam results to come out before they start studying again. Whether you are reserve or active duty it is a big mistake to stop your studies! Did you know that your last profile sheet along with the advancement quotas as well as the CREO group gives you a good indication of where you stand compared to your peers and how much you need to study in order to advance in rate? The quota is usually released (the public version) after the Navy Advancement exam results come out but it shows a good trend on how many sailors are being advanced in a particular rate.

If you don't have a prior profile sheet, you shouldn't have stopped your studies in the first place! Simply put it goes like this. If the advancement quotas for your rate has a 30% advancement rate and your profile sheet has you on the lower percentile of the advancement test, your chances of advancing are less than someone with the same quota who missed the advancement exam by 1 point! In the rough & tumble world of the Navy wide Advancement exam, you are in direct competition with those in your own rate and rank!
That doesn't mean you shouldn't help each other, on the contrary you should! The material for the Navy advancement exam is so large that study groups or partners will only compliment your individual studies. And in the end its all going to depend on how hard you study on your own, compared to others in the first place. Just remember that you are your own teacher responsible for setting your own study time and I think you’ll get the picture.
