Final Multiple Score, or FMS, is a calculation used by the United States Navy to determine whether or not enlisted sailors of the paygrades E-3, E-4, E-5, or E-6 are eligible to advance to the next paygrade. It involves six different categories that are each weighted by percentage, producing a total sum that is used to compare other sailors during a biannual advancement cycle.[1]

In 2007, the Navy changed the computation of the FMS by adding points for the awarding of an associate degree or a bachelor's degree, and making periodic evaluations factor more heavily in the score. The following chart is used to produce the final multiple:[2]
