RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces guidance regarding administration of the
Fall 2023 (cycle 113) Navy-wide Advancement Examination (NWAE) for Selected
Reserve (SELRES) and Prior Service Reenlistment Eligibility Reserve (PRISE-R)
Sailors. Cycle 113 includes those SELRES candidates serving on voluntary
recall, mobilization, or as canvasser recruiters.
2. SELRES E-4 candidates will continue to compete for advancement via the
alternate final multiple score (A-FMS). E-4 advancement candidates will not
participate in the NWAE, but will be given the opportunity to compete for
advancement via continued use of an A-FMS rank-order method, without the
inclusion of an examination score from a proctored examination.
3. Cycle 113 will be the first cycle in which the E-4 NWAE will not be
administered specifically for normal PRISE-R E-3 to E-4 advancement or to
make a rate permanent for E-4 to E-4 PRISE-R Sailors. Policy changes will be
promulgated in a PRISE-R specific NAVADMIN. Additionally, reference (a) will
be updated to reflect the policy changes.
4. In line with references (b) and (c), the enlisted advancement worksheet
(EAW) is the authoritative source of all data used to determine cycle 113

discrepancies may be addressed via the post-examination administration
comment (PAC) process after worksheets are locked for the cycle.
