You may have heard that some rank requirements have changed for 2016.

Here's how it works for Scouts who joined the BSA prior to Jan. 1, 2016: 
  • Scouts who are working on the Tenderfoot through First Class ranks MAY continue to follow the old requirements, but MUST convert to the current requirements upon attaining First Class.
  • Scouts who have completed the First Class rank MAY complete the rank they are currently working on in the old requirements, but MUST convert to the current requirements for subsequent ranks. 
  • Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, all Scouts MUST use the current requirements regardless of rank.

The new requirements are under the Files tab
