The board is a little small this year. In the past if someone was to PVR now, he would be replaced by someone from the board that has just sat. However, the policy has recently changed and a gap appearing now, will be replaced by someone found from the 2006 board as the life of that board's merit list is 1 Oct 06 - 30 Sep 07. This relatively recent policy change has made the announcement made this morning smaller. It has also made the likelihood of supplementary promotions more likely. I think it is likely that someone missing this board by a small margin will get lucky in 9-12 months time.
The points needed to get promoted this year were extremely high and there were some top quality Cpls just missing out.
I do not have access to the details here as I am at home. But the points varied quite considerably dependant on trade. Pioneer was the highest at 40 pt (only 2 promoted), Chef 37 pt and Driver and Supplier at 35, if I recall correctly. Others were in that order but with Mov Con and AT closer to 30 pt. I felt particularly sorry for the Pioneers and Chefs - some top guys (edit - and girls) missed out be small margins.
I was trying to apply to join the RLC back in the 90's but was told my BARB score was too high (29). So i joined something else. Now I want to transfer over and was wondering. If I pretend to be dyslexic and act a little dumb at interview do you think I will have a chance. Sensible answers please.
