Fully agree.

This is unless you dont meet the perf grade requirement.

Confirmed KPs have to be GEO4. What's puzzling is that there are confirmed KPs who consistently meet the requirements of their jobscope but are still stuck at GEO4. There is indeed no reason for a KP who meets expectations to be stuck at GEO4, since the establishment grade is at least SEO1. But it happens. Why? Well, I'm not from HR.

MX11 is the max level for teacher? What about the officer at MOE HQ?

A quick comparison of progression rates shared in the teacher thread vs the civil service thread shows that itís much faster to reach MX11 and GEO4.
