As far as Pulaski, it could merely be a case of her having been promoted in order to have greater seniority at a previous assignment.
Which still proves it is possible for blueshirts to reach commander rank without taking a bridge officer's test. Admiral McCoy and Commodore Stocker also show that it is possible reach flag rank without commanding starships.
But it also means that without taking the test, a blue shirt could spend their entire career without advancing to commander rank, especially if having the rank isn't a need at their current assignment as was the case with Crusher and Troi.
