Making the cut

Making the cut means being chosen or picked to be part of a group or to move forward, as in a competition. When you make the cut, this usually means that you performed well in something and because of this, you are considered worthy of moving forward. Things can also make the cut, as in photographs or paintings that are chosen out of many to be part of an exhibit.

like this:
1. Tom got picked for the basketball team. Unfortunately his twin brother, Ted, didn't make the cut.
2. I heard John auditioned for the concert choir at school. Do you know if he made the cut?
3. I can't believe our band actually made the cut to perform at the festival. This will give us a lot of exposure.
4. Her paintings got selected in the preliminaries, but it didn't make the final cut.
5. The company is looking for five new salespeople. I think my interview went well; I hope I make the cut.

Alright, ladies and gents. Have you made the cut lately? Have you done well in a competition or an application that you got selected to be part of a chosen group? If you have, congratulations! ... and oh yeah! Tell us about it. 

Hope to hear from you.

P.S. Think about giving The small guide To Improving Your English to friends and family who are learning English. They'll thank you for it.
Really, it's a great small gift idea.
