Mid Period Appraisal Report
It's really to give you a chance to sort out problems before your main report hoves into view, and your chance to raise minor grievances or perhaps discuss future career or posting possibilities with your OC.
A largely ignored paperwork (or, now, JPA-work) exercise completed whenever your boss gets nagged at by his boss for not having done it yet and manages to find 5 minutes to tell you what an arrse you have been making of yourself (your Platoon / Troop / Squadron Sergeant will normally do this, of course.) Completely mythological in many units.
