Instructor, Professional and Elite Categories

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%.

Performer Category

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%.
