The Candidate Master (CM) title is the lowest title in chess, which is awarded to players who surpass an official FIDE rating of 2200 in international competition.

FIDE stands for the Fédération Internationale des Échecs, which is the international governing body for chess.

The FIDE rating system is used to calculate the relative skill levels of players based on their performance in tournaments.

The rating system takes into account factors such as the strength of opponents, the number of games played, and the results of those games.
