However, the P stabbed me in the back and gave it to junior officer who was just geo 1A1. Suffered terrible pre & post natal depression as a result (guess God decided to give me a baby to replace the position )

Realised that I did not work smart and no one is irreplaceable.. so not gonna make that same mistake again and decided to step down to focus on core duty of teaching and family.

If you shine, you shine. Unless the whole school is conspiring against you, in which case it is time to seek a change in environment and a fresh start.
You must remember who chairs the ranking board?

If the RO is not on good terms with the officer, other who wished to fight for higher ranking for their subordinates will not face any objection from the RO.

Also, when the P recommends a certain grade for the officer, who dares to stand forward to object?

As long as the RO wants his/her JH to get lower ranking, it can be done. The rest of the KPs will not voice out because they want their own JH to rank higher. What is writing a report to a RO who wants to eliminate his/her JH?

How hard is it to get GEO5 by 33?

Unregistered Think maybe only senior management(?) and HR would really know for sure, but from observation it seems highly variable. I've seen non-KP get to GEO5 in their 30s (probably higher CEP though), and also a GEO3 near retirement ageÖ

2) What are some things that you wish you could have done better or not done when you look back?

3) I am currently tutoring some students and I am debating whether to drop them as I do not want to over-commit to my tutees. If you know or have heard of anyone's experiences, do lmk!

Thank you from a junior looking forward to join the teaching fraternity ^_^

Have a great day ahead and its the school holidays!!!

The experience differs from school to school. From what I see, UTs usually do tag to a form class and CCA BUT it is more for experience and donít have to do admin or planning etc. Worklosd is definitely less, no committees etc. You can definitely still juggle your tutees
