All events will be sectioned which means that only the top one from each Judge section moved on to the Internationals REGARDLESS of score. Sectioning helps to eliminate judge bias but it’s difficult to explain to students that even though they have an overall mark that is higher than one of the competitors going, that they did not qualify. The ranking according to Judge section matters and not the overall score. Click on link to see How Results are Tabulated. If the event had a test, it was indeed factored into the overall score.
