Sailors must successfully complete PMK-EE in order to be eligible to take the advancement exam. Additionally, the Sailor's PMK-EE must be completed by the first day of the month in which the advancement exam is administered.
Sailors who advance through the Meritorious Advancement Program are required to complete PMK-EE by the first day of MAP open season. Additionally, Sailors who automatically advance to E-4 upon completion of an A School must successfully complete PMK-EE prior to advancement.
The Professional Military Knowledge Eligibility Exam exam consists of 100 questions covering five topic areas: Leadership and Character, Career Information, Professional Conduct, Naval Heritage, and Seamanship.
Each topic may be taken independently of the other sections, in any order, and not necessarily during the same MNP session. Sailors taking the exam must achieve a passing score of 80 percent or higher in each area to pass the entire exam. Failure to achieve an 80 percent score on a topic will require that topic to be retaken in order to pass.
