The National Grading Cut-off Points are:-

A Grade        97.50% and above

B Grade        94.50 to 97.49%

C Grade        94.49% and below

 

TASMANIAN GRADING CUT-OFF POINTS

It has been decided to lower the Cut-off points for local competitions so that there will be a reasonable spread of grades

 

The Tasmanian Cut-off Points at the moment are:-

A Grade        96.00% and above

B Grade        92.00% to 95.90%

C Grade        91.90 and less

 

For a Tasmanian Queens the National Cut-off points will be used for all competitors.

When a Tasmanian Competitor enters in an Interstate Queens, the National Cut-off points should also be used.

The present Tasmanian Cut-off points of 96.00%  and 92.00% is under constant review as scores and abilities improve.

 

The system used for Grading takes into account (to some degree) the weather conditions prevailing on any particular day as well as the Range difficulty - because all scores used for Grading are directly related to the TOP SCORE OF THE DAY, irrespective of whether it is recorded by an A or B or C Grade shooter.

All scores in all Open Competitions and ALL DISTANCES are used to calculate the Grading.

In Multiple Day Competitions each day's aggregate is used for grading purposes. For Example:- in a full Queens program of 5 days (2 days Lead-up and 3 days Queens, there will be 5 aggregates counted. Lead-up and Queens Aggregates do not count.

 

Simply it is this ----- (say a three range shoot with 150 being the possible)

 

Shooter A scores ---- 150 = 100% (top score)

Shooter B scores ---- 150 = 100% (top score)

Shooter C scores ---- 147 = 98.000% ----------- 147/150 x 100 = 98.000%

Shooter D scores ---- 142 = 94.666% ----------- 142/150 x 100 = 94.666%

Shooter E scores ---- 136 = 90.666% ----------- 136/150 x 100 = 90.666%

And so on:-

 

We use the last 8 Prize Meeting scores to arrive at the final average, which is the average of the last 8 scores. There are no cut outs. If 8 scores are not available, as many as possible are used. The cut-off point may be varied from time to time by a State Grading Officer in order to keep a reasonable balance between A and B and C Grades.
