Let's use a truly average person then

Starting salary= 3900
Year 1 (cohort promotion) 3900 +700 =4600
Year 2-6 (annual MI) = 4600 +(200 x5) =5600

Where is the maxing the salary cap in 4-6 years come about? I'm here using numbers to show how it's not possible for an "average person". So for the people claiming that an "average person" can max in 5-6 years with a C grade, show your working pls.
GEO3 here (4th year in grade). Your math is correct.
I'm a 2UCH and my numbers match yours. MI was slightly lower during Covid but this was balanced out by a 9% salary revision.

I will likely max out in another 3+ years.

Just wanted to add. Indeed FCH are a minority of a graduating cohort. However, with more selective and decreased hiring, and with a large % of GEO3s being scholars... large proportion of GEO3s are going to be FCH or 2UCH. Anyway, FCH and 2UCH now command the same starting salary - one of MOE's moves to "de-emphasise" on grades and qualifications.
