"High" means different things depending on your answers to the above. For a non-KP normal teacher, P6 (SEO2) could be considered high, but if you are a PSC scholar, then we have to look at "high" differently.
Personally I know of an ex teacher who came in as a scholar. She got GEO 5 in her 5th year. Came in direct from HQ and as SH. Her CEP was that of a director.. However, she decided to pursue other interests and is much happier now..

Just to clarify, I was under the old scheme, where i did a degree first followed by PDGE~

I was a TSL but I don't think these scholarships count for much though unless you're an ems or psc scholar.

You can view the promotion as a batch promotion. Though if getting C- means no promotion for the next three years held true, then I wouldn’t have been promoted anyway.

As for getting a B the next year, some factors I can think of:
- I told my P I wanted to know how to get an A or a B.
- I had a change of RO.
- Someone nominated me for OCA and I won it.
On hindsight, it was largely human factors that changed my performance grading. My work and work ethic remained similar for both years.
It is strange to be given C- for year 1 though unless you really screwed up something

Unregistered The highest I've seen on a non-KP is SEO2 potential - possible to take on HOD or LT role.

If that's really the case, it will probably mean you've been enjoying a faster rate of promotion, and it'll be easier for you to formally take on a position.

C- doesn't hard-restrict one from being promoted, only a D and/or PRP do, although it usually does delay a normal promotion. Yours was secure because it was a cohort promotion.

And that is why the ranked appraisal system is complete bullshit as Louis Ng most recently pointed out.

As a new RO myself it was very very very difficult to fight for people who genuinely deserved better, if going against the sometimes ill-informed opinions of more powerful and influential ROs who have entrenched themselves in much more favourable positions in the office political landscape.
