Instructor, Professional and Elite Categories

Judge Technical 40% Presentation 30% Composition 30% Mark
1 5.5 3.4 4.1 44.5
2 9.9 5.1 8.8 81.3
3 6.7 2.4 4.6 47.8
4 8.2 6.7 8.1 77.2
5 5.7 4.3 5.0 50.7
6 6.1 4.2 5.1 52.3

TOTAL 228.0

FINAL SCORE 57.0%

To calculate the mark from Judge 3, for example, the marks for each element would be multiplied according to their weighting as follows:

6.7 x 4 + 2.4 x 3 + 4.6 x 3 = 47.8

In this case, the marks from Judge 2 (highest) and Judge 1 (lowest) will be excluded, and the total score out of 400 would be:

47.8 + 77.2 + 50.7 + 52.3 = 228.0

This would then be divided by 4 to give an average of 57.0/100 i.e. 57.0%.

TOTAL 192.0

FINAL SCORE 48%

To calculate the mark from Judge 3, for example, the marks for each element would be multiplied according to their weighting as follows:

3.4 x 5 + 4.6 x 5 = 40

In this case, the marks from Judge 2 (highest) and Judge 1 (lowest) will be excluded, and the total score out of 400 would be:

40 + 59 + 46.5 + 46.5 = 192.0

This would then be divided by 4 to give an average of 48.0/100 i.e. 48.0%.
