    Included in my admissables packet is a link titled "are you ready for west point mathematics?" It says that incoming cadets will be tested on their fundamental mathematics knowledge- makes sense. I have not had a math class in over a year and I am working on "re-igniting" my "mathness."

    It includes 10 practice FCEs (fundamental concepts exam). The required knowledge for each of these seems to differ slightly, though I haven't worked through all of them yet.

    My question is this: how many FCEs will I take at CBT? Will I take 10, or only 1? I Would like to know what I'm up against. Any current cadets that could weigh in on this would be awesome, although I appreciate any input! Thanks:thumb:

    Positivity,

    You will take one FCE during BCT, if you get an 80% or higher you're good to go. Otherwise I think you will take another one at the beginning of the Ac year.

    You won't take 10 FCEs. They just have ten on the site so you can practice a couple.

    Makes sense. However, you haven't yet gone through BCT. How did you come across this info? Thanks.
