Punctuality is probably what cost Sasuke his promotion, since those were awarded before he defected.

Then again, Kakashi's always late, so who's to say?

Pretty sure the main reason for Kakashi’s tardiness is his frequent visits to the KIA memorial. Which to my knowledge only started after the Kakashi Gaiden when he was already up for promotion to jounin, meaning he’d already been promoted to chuunin.

Sasuke though yeah, no client likes a tardy ninja!

Eh, by the standard they were judging for Chuunin promotions, Naruto's score would have beat out Sasuke's and Naruto wasn't promoted.

As seen with Shikimaru's match and subsequent promotion, what they wanted was strategy, tactics, and outside the box thinking for the Chuunin promotion.

Naruto's use of Shadow Clones and his willingness to use his true body as bait to land hits on an objectively superior combatant, followed by successfully baiting his opponent into an all out clash with a clone while he dug a tunnel for a surprise ambush meant that Naruto was actually using tactics.

Not on the level of Shikimaru whose tactics and ability to lead his opponent by the nose gave him a one match and done promotion. But it should have been enough that later rounds could have been judged in Naruto's favor had he kept it up and had the attack not happened.

Sasuke's fight on the other hand was basically a slugging match where he took extra time to get to a taijutsu level that one of Gaara's prior opponents possessed and lost with, then used a full frontal attack jutsu to penetrate Gaara's guard, there is literally no tactics beyond simply outspeeding his opponent and relying on his Sharingan to avoid counter attacks.

Of course, I'm also pretty sure that some of the scoring was done in the preliminary rounds, which is another kettle of fish and analysis that doesn't apply to something like this comic.
