As an addition to my other post, learn how the Composite/Cutting Score system works.

Here's a quick rundown.

There are only so many Sergeant & Corporal "Billets" available for your MOS in the Marine Corps. That means that someone has to Get out, Die, or get Promoted for you to advance to the next rank. When you have a "Closed MOS" that means that ALL of those billets are CURRENTLY (for that Month/Quarter) are FILLED. Tracking so far?

Cutting Scores are a numeric (statistical) representation of your "spot in line." It's really that simple. But rather than being #17 (which would be easy to understand) we show what your current point total is.

There's a reason for that. We don't know how many people are going to "Exodus" (Get out, Die, or get Promoted) during ant given month. Because every rank above you (to MGySgt) affects you. When a MGySgt gets out, a MSgt gets promoted the following month (usually), then a Gunny, then a SSgt, a Sgt & Cpl (at the same time).

But let's say in April, they need 5 Corporals for your MOS. What they are going to do is promote the 5 folks with the HIGHEST composite scores. They don't actually care what those scores are. As an example, they can be 1820 (dude's been in FOREVER), 1800, 1740,1735, 1400. The CUTTING SCORE (Lowest Score to get promoted) will be 1400. The guy with 1400 (#5 in the MOS) catches a hell of a break whereas the guys with 1700+ are going WTF?!? because they've been sitting there forever. Now if there are two guys with 1400, they BOTH get promoted, and there is just one less opening the following cycle (month, quarter, etc). Make sense?

So your goal is not really to "raise your score" in as much as it is to get as "high on the list as possible" which is done by raising your score.

I'm assuming your looking specifically at getting to Corporal. For that you need to understand what the Marine Corps considers correct T/O (Task Organization) and progression for your field. In general, Cpl is supposed to take "about" 3-4 years total TIS (depends on whether you graduated boot camp PFC, and what the current force looks like). Sgt gets a little trickier. It's all math, and your School House, and Monitor actually have all this info available but almost no one asks for it.

MCIs/DL. They are your "go to" for added points. Get those in FIRST. Knock them out.

1) They are a HARD requirement for promotion. So just get them done so they don't have an excuse not to promote (As soon as you are eligible to take an DL course, take it).
2) They have an upper limit on points you can get from them (it used to be 75).
3) You can leverage PME on your Proficiency Marks (which is more Composite Score Points). Going from 4.2 to 4.3 (or whatever) is another 10 points.

PFT/CFT takes CONSTANT effort and should be worked on "continuously" and the scoring only happens twice a year (Dec/Jun), so you build it up. This will also add to your Pro marks.

Rifle score is going to get better over time, but since you only go annually.. it's trickier. More gun time is going to end up with better scores in general.

B-Billets are really a "second term" issue (Cpl to Sergeant) issue, as opposed to a first term issue.

I know for the Army, aside from getting the highest PT score you can get, shooting 40/40 at the range and doing something stellar that can get you an AAM or ARCOM, correspondence courses will help you out in the end

Marine Corps Promotions

through == content == ABOVE THIS LINE except BREADCRUMBS-->

Information for questions regarding promotions for enlisted Marines.

There is one question that any good Marine will ask on a regular basis. "How can I get promoted?" That answer will vary depending on the rank of the Marine. We will keep it simple and stick to the basics of getting promoted. If anyone wants to read a more in-depth description of the promotion system, click here to read the Marine Corps Promotion Manual.

Promotions to Private First Class and Lance Corporal

Marines who have served 6 months active duty as a Private are eligible for promotion to Private First Class (PFC), as long as their service is deemed satisfactory by the Commander. Time spent in boot camp does count towards the required 6 months. The same requirement exists for reservists as well. Marines who have served 8 months active duty as a PFC and 9 months time in service (TIS) are eligible for promotion to Lance Corporal (LCpl), again as long as their service is deemed satisfactory by the Commander. As a reservist, the same requirements apply.

Meritorious Promotions to Private First Class and Lance Corporal

A Commander can meritoriously promote a Marine to PFC if they believe they have shown outstanding leadership and performance. This applies to Reserve commands as well. A similar procedure occurs for meritorious promotion to LCpl. However, a command may hold a meritorious promotion board for LCpl each quarter; which will occur in December, March, June, and September.

Promotions to Corporal and Sergeant

Promotions to Corporal (Cpl) and Sergeant (Sgt) are slightly more complicated. The eligibility for promotions to these ranks is based on a composite score. The components that go into computing this score are:

  • Rifle Score-Determined by the Marine's score on the rifle range.
  • Physical Fitness Test-Based on the Marine's physical fitness test score.
  • Combat Fitness Test-Based on the Marine's combat fitness test score.
  • Proficiency Rating-A rating given quarterly by the Marine's supervisor based on the Marine's performance, ranging from 0 to 5.0.
  • Conduct Rating-A rating given quarterly by the Marine's supervisor based on the Marine's conduct, ranging from 0 to 5.0.
  • Time in Service-The total number of months of service.
  • Time in Grade-The total number of months served in their present grade/rank.
  • Drill Instructor/Recruiter/Security Bonus Points-Commands can add 100 bonus points for Marine's serving as Drill Instructors, Recruiters, and Marine Security Guards.
  • Education-Marine's can receive up to 100 points for military and civilian education.
  • Command Recruiting Referrals- E-3's and E-4's can refer individuals to recruiters. If those individuals enlist in the Marine Corps those Marine's will earn 20 bonus points per individual with a maximum of 100 points.

All of these components added together make up the Marine's composite score. Once their composite score is equal to or greater than the quarterly cutting score for that rank, they will be eligible for promotion. However, there is also a time in grade (TIG) and time in service (TIS) component to factor in. To be eligible for a promotion to Corporal, a Lance Corporal must have a minimum of 12 months TIG. This was updated in MARADMINS Number: 055/16. In order to be promoted to Sergeant, Corporals must have 48 months time in service. This was updated in MARADMINS Number: 697/19.

Meritorious Promotions to Corporal and Sergeant

A Commander can meritoriously promote a Marine to Cpl or Sgt if they believe that Marine has shown outstanding leadership and performance. There are quarterly promotion boards held in December, March, June, and September.

Staff Non-Commissioned Officer Promotions

Each fiscal year the Commandant of the Marine Corps (CMC) holds selection boards to examine Marines in the rank of Sgt, SSgt, GySgt, MSgt, and 1stSgt. While evaluating the Marine they will take into consideration their performance, leadership, professional and technical knowledge, experience, growth potential, motivation, physical fitness, personal appearance, conduct, moral character, and maturity. Time in grade and time in service will also factor in. Sergeants looking to be promote to Staff Sergeant must have 60 months time in service and 36 months time in grade. The board will also refer to the Marine's Fitness Report (FitRep), which is a review of that Marine's performance during a specific time period. Meritorious promotions for Staff NCO's are slightly more complicated and can be read in depth in MCO 1400.32D,USMC Promotion Manual, starting on page 118.

Editorial: A broken promotion system

AFN Iwakuni

Story by Cpl. Jennifer Webster


Date: 12.21.2015

Posted: 12.30.2015 22:19

News ID: 185503

Editor's Note: The views expressed in the following entry are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the Marine Corps, Department of Defense or the U.S. government.

MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan -
“I made the cutting score…”

Month after month these words are uttered by Marines who have not demonstrated they are leaders or technical experts in their military occupational specialty, or MOS. The coveted status of non-commissioned officer, or NCO in the Marine Corps, is going down the drain. Why? A broken promotion system.

Promotions to corporal and sergeant are based on a point system. Halfway through the second month of every fiscal quarter, lance corporals and corporals receive a composite score calculated by running numbers through a formula prescribed in MCO1400.32D.

Composite scores use a combination of time in service, time in grade, rifle score, physical and combat fitness test scores and average in grade proficiency and conduct scores to assign each Marine an individual score. In addition, bonus points (up to 100 points per category) are awarded for education, special duties, recruiting and as a reenlistment incentive.

During the third month of the fiscal quarter, the Marine Corps announces a cutting score for promotion to corporal or sergeant in every career field. If a Marine’s composite score is above the cutting score for his rank or MOS, that Marine is promoted on the first day of the following month.

It’s that simple. This system does not promote the best; it promotes those who manage to get the most points.

“I honestly feel like based on MOS’ composite scores, some Marines pick up rank a lot faster than others,” said Cpl. Jessica Quezada, a Marine awaiting to make the composite score for sergeant. “Marines are promoted based on what looks good on paper rather than the Marine themselves. It puts them in a sink or swim situation. If they sink, they aren’t just sinking themselves, but their entire shop and the junior Marines they are expected to lead.”

This system does not promote the best; it promotes those who manage to get the most points.

So why is that an issue? Up until fiscal year 2016, the Marine Corps was dropping Marines left and right.

According to Marine Corps Times article, “Corps’ budget temporarily halts drawdown,” early release, retirements, and forced separations became the new norm as the Marine Corps dealt with a smaller budget. Then last year, Marine officials revised the numbers coming to the conclusion that the Corps could hold fast at 182,000 personnel, but what if they hadn’t revised the budget?

In 2014, the Marine Corps was preparing to shed an additional 8,000 Marines. The drawdown was expected to leave the Corps with just 174,000 Marines by 2017.

So who gets to stay in and who gets the short end of the stick? That’s simple; rank has its privileges, right? The higher a Marine’s rank, the longer he can stay in the Marine Corps. A lance corporal can’t stay in as long as a corporal who can’t stay in as long as a sergeant who can’t stay in as long as a staff sergeant and so on and so forth.

What sense does it make deciding who gets to stay and who has to leave based on a system that doesn’t focus on retaining leaders and technical experts in their respective job fields? Before you know it, you have staff noncommissioned officers who don’t have the technical skills to perform basic tasks trying to lead non-commissioned officers, who don’t know their left from their right. Let alone know how to lead. It’s a never ending cycle.

At the end of the day, the promotion system is still broken and Marines will be promoted whether their ready or not putting them in what Quezada said is a “sink or swim situation.” We still have non-commissioned officers trying to lead the blind when they don’t know how to carry themselves in a respectable manner. It won’t be a quick fix or an easy task, but the Marine Corps needs to, at least, consider revising the way we promote the leaders we are expected to follow.

‘No more free points’: A look inside the Corps’ upcoming junior Marine promotion system

In a Wednesday administrative message the Corps announced it be will launching a new promotion system for juniors Marines, ditching the proficiency and conduct marks known as pros/cons for JEPES: the junior enlisted performance evaluation system.

The Corps hopes the new system will improve its ability to select corporals and sergeants, encourage competition throughout the Marine Corps and end the stigmas that all a Marine needs for promotion is the ability to run fast and do a lot of pullups, Sgt. Major Robert Williamson, with Marine Corps Manpower and Reserve Affairs, told Marine Corps Times in a Thursday phone interview.

“Pros and cons weren’t exactly broken, but we can use technology to improve that process,” Williamson said. “That’s exactly what JEPES is.”

The process to develop JEPES started in 2018, but Williamson said the Corps has been searching for a way to improve sergeant and corporal promotions for years.

“This is something that the force wants,” he said. “This is a good thing we are actually giving them (the fleet Marine force) what they have been asking for, for a while now,” he added.

The new system, set to start February 1, 2021, will be made up of three objective scores ― called war fighting, physical toughness and mental agility ― combined with a more subjective score provided by a Marine’s command, called command input.

All four “pillars” will be weighted equally when producing the final cutting score, Williamson told Marine Corps Times.

The new system will no longer consider time in grade and time in service for the calculation, eliminating the “free points” Marines would get “just because you were breathing for the last 90 days,” Williamson said.

The war fighting score will be based on a Marine’s rifle range score and Marine Corps Martial Arts Program level. The physical toughness score will include a Marine’s physical fitness test and combat fitness test scores. And the mental agility score will be based on the primary military education the Marine has completed, along with any college courses taken.

The command input score will be on a 0.0 to 5.0 scale and a Marine who just “meets expectations,” is expected to receive marks between 2.0 and 3.0, a significantly larger range than the 4.0 to 4.4 range used for an equivalent Marine in the pro/con systems.

“That bell curve when you look at the average is a very high, very narrow bell curve,” Williamson told Marine Corps Times

The new system “allows us to differentiate that top 10 percent, that middle 25 percent and so on, which help break out the performers and enable that elicit competition,” Williamson added.

When filling out the command input, section leaders are directed to focus in on a Marine’s personal character, military occupational specialty knowledge and leadership abilities ― another break from the old pro/con systems that included other parts of a Marine’s career already factored into their score, like how well they did on a PFT.

In the current system, “the PFT itself is almost considered three times and Marines who maybe phenomenal at their MOS just can’t get over the physical fitness aspect,” of the scoring system, the sergeant major said.

By removing the overlap in scoring the Corps hopes to end the stigma that all the Marine Corps cares about is athletic ability, regardless of leadership ability or job knowledge, Williamson added.

“These four pillars identify exactly what we are looking for,” Williamson said. “It allows those commanders to talk about that Marine’s character, their leadership ability and, equally important, their proficiency at their MOS and their ability to accomplish the mission,” he said.

The Corps also hopes that the equal weight of the four pillars will remove some of the subjectivity that can creep into the pro/con system when different units score Marines slightly differently.

The JEPES systems also will change how MarineNet calculates courses ― now basing the points a Marine gets for completing an online course on how hard the course was, how long it was expected to take and how much the Corps wanted the course.

Another key change will be the monthly updates to the score, meaning Marines will no longer have to wait a full quarter to see the PFT or rifle range included.

The system also will come with two trackers: one allowing a Marine to compare themselves to all Marines of their rank in their MOS, while the second will allow them to compare themselves against every Marine of their rank in the Corps.

The Corps hopes the combination of the frequent updates, the increased difficulty to get points and the online trackers will increase competition as Marines try to race to the top of the leader board.

“Marines all love to compete and they love to win,” Williamson said. “So this puts it back into their hands.”
