Unregistered I think you have not been promoted to GEO 5 because your CEP had not been adjusted before you joined HQ. However, I presume your AD and Director would have adjusted your CEP during your HQ stint since you have been consistently getting Bs

Is it usually the case that those who get promoted in Apr have higher CEP than the promotees in Oct? How do they decide who gets promoted in Apr and Oct in the same year?

hmm you might be right.. i don't have honours. just basic degree... didn't know cohort promotion is affected by honours. always thought it just affected the starting salary.

guess i will have to wait for next april :/

Usually these people will not remain in the same school. They will usually apply for open/closed posting.
