I think the Scoutmaster is holding the BOR resposible for his job. When he
meets with the scout at the SM conference he needs to hold the boy there if
he feels the boy is not ready. The BOR's job is to get a feel for the troops
overall job and that this scout is learning and having a good time doing it.
This is not a final exam for the testing. The SM and the Advancement Chairman
must work together to do the best for the boys in the Troop. If a boy is NOT
ready he should not be sent to the BOR. If he is borderline the BOR needs to
know that and can make the call. I couldn't imagine seeing a young man 3
times for 2nd class.
