Masters degree does not really have much effect on rate of promotion. But the class of honours do have an impact on your starting pay. That's why for teachers who subsequently upgraded and did a masters, they didn't see an increment on their pay.

Likewise for BTs who entered service without work experience, their starting pay is based on their classification of honours, even if they have a masters degree. Hard truth but that's a fact.

I have seen my fair share of teachers who despite being emplaced on the old GEO2.1 scheme were promoted multiple times.. It has got to do with their performance and CEP.. Their performance grades have been consistent Bs. You mentioned your performance is all C. That explains also. One teacher who despite being emplaced on the old geo 2.1 scheme has already hit GEO 5 within 7 years in service.

Hope it helps.
There's no policy or direct instruction from MOEHR that states CEP is confidential. Many ROs and SLs simply prefer it that way because revealing the CEP MIGHT make for awkward work review sessions. Like our students' fascination with their numerical grade, some officers might get overly fixated on their CEP, which isn't very healthy.

If you wanna bang table bang chair and demand to know your CEP, in a matter of time, I think your RO will relent and tell you. BUT I would advise you against it. Just do your best, and let the system take care of itself.

You don't need to know your CEP to get a sense of how your career is progressing (or not). Just compare yourself to similar-profile officers who came in around the same time as you.
