The Air Force Personnel Center on Thursday will release the list of 1,367 master sergeants selected for promotion to senior master sergeant. The promotions will begin in April, in order of sequence numbers, the personnel center announced Tuesday.

About 400 fewer master sergeants were selected this year than in 2012, when more than 1,700 were selected. The pool of airmen was slightly larger this year 12,834 this year compared with 12,351 in 2012 which brought the promotion rate down to 10.65 percent. Last year's promotion rate was 13.78 percent.

Master sergeants selected have an average score of 673.11, slightly higher than last year's average of 670.44. The average time in grade for those selected is 4.02 years, compared with 4.12 last year; and time in service is 18.89 years this year, compared with 19.27 in 2012. The average enlisted performance reports score is 135.00, and the average score for decorations is 20.63 this year, about the same as last year. The average score for the promotion fitness exam is 71.73, up slightly from 70.62 in 2012.

Selections are tentative until the data verification process is complete, which occurs no later than 10 days after release of the promotion list. Airmen whose promotions are in question will be notified by personnel officials.
