Long term, having a referral OER will make later promotions difficult, if not impossible. At Major though, it really depends on how well you ranked against your peers before the referral. Many people can still make Major with a referral.
The best way to try and do so is to pass a PT now, as soon as possible so that there will be a recent PT test pass in the record. This will indicate that you are not unable to pass the test, but that it was an administrative failure to get that testing completed in the appropriate time frame.
