If you don't know your pre board score you can't complain... That system employs common sense and we can't have that in HM Armed Forces now can we?
Manning have been proudly running this way since 1918!
Will they really announce grading at the end of the board, given they aren't announcing pre-board now i doubt they would announce it after.
If I had my way it would work something like this: You are un promotable until you receive a positive recommendation, you then join the list for promotion.
As people infront of you are promoted you go up the list (Which is published) the only way to move up or down the list is to have people promoted above you or if you receive an exceptional you jump above those on the list that haven't received one or drop places if you receive a formal warning etc.
If your a B, you'll get told at the end when the board is finished.
So the less than transparent system gets just a little more murky, IMO pre boarding is what causes most of the issues with promotion, 1 year a strong A candidate then the next year a B with no explanation.
To maintain your standing on the list you have to receive a positive assesment i.e. Everyone knows where they stand and excellence is rewarded by moving up the list quicker. Will they really announce grading at the end of the board, given they aren't announcing pre-board now i doubt they would announce it after.
We shall see, not holding my breath this time, what's the point.
From my time there there were some good guys who did deserve to get picked up, given they had actually worked and not just dished out the odd mobile phone/fax machine as DATO at RAF Sleephollow. I am hopeful but not optimistic due to Last Years SJAR Debarkle! I am hopeful but not optimistic due to Last Years SJAR Debarkle!
There were also some dubious guys who clearly got picked up under the old scheme of "he's so sh1t if he gets picked up he's out of my hands". I'm unfortunately one of the unlucky few that dosen't seen to have a 'contact' or 'mate' in PMA who can give me special advanced notification of privilaged info. So with regard to the Countdown, What do we think...... Spamout So with regard to the Countdown, What do we think...... Spamout I'd go with ratified Friday midday, and a select few Wobblies (read 90SU) giving the good news on friday afternoon. That's how I remember last year..luck fellas (and girls).
Good luck to those lucky enough to get selected for the predicted 40 slots, given the last two boards have fallen short of the prediction try not to take it as set in stone though...
RE the old TCW/90 debate - we've heard it all before.
That would not only let everyone know where they stand but would give an early warning to those that are U grades and need to start the process of having their SJARs read.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
