Sorry - at the dojo I belongED to people were promoted above their seniors not based on ability, but on whether they were friends with the people who ran the place, or were taking on assistant instructor role.

If people were promoted on ability alone at this particular place, there would not be a lot of people training, nor did they wait 'till their seniors were promoted to be tested at the same time.
