A Board of Review is the final requirement for each Scouting rank. It is to be presided by three members of the troop committee. It has three main goals:

  • To make sure the Scout has done what he was supposed to do for the rank,
  • To see how good an experience the Scout is having in the unit, and
  • To encourage the Scout to progress further.

The decision of all boards of review is arrived at through discussion and must be unanimous.

There are two basic types of Boards of Review. The regular review covers personal development and rank advancement for all ranks except Eagle. The Eagle Board of Review has extra requirements keeping in the spirit of the high honor associated with earning the Eagle rank. For a full discussion of the rules of conducting both type of boards, go to the National BSA Policies Related To Boards Of Review and Courts of Honor page.
