 The promotion system is used to promote qualified soldiers. The cut-off score for your particular MOS isdependent upon many factors. Actual by-grade strengths, budgetary limitations on numbers of soldiersauthorized by Congress in each grade and gains/losses to each grade affect the Army's promotioncapability. Generally, the number promoted is less than the number eligible, making promotions highlycompetitive. Therefore, it is important to know how the system works in order to avoid unnecessary set backs in an otherwise promising career.3
