Ranking System

Only the top PLACING team for each school is counted and any second, third, etc. teams from the same school are ignored. For example, if Team University places 1st, 3rd, and 6th; we simply do not include a 3rd or 6th place from the event.

1 - Each team starts with a power rating of 1.00

2 - Each contest is given a rating based on the average power rating of the top ten teams at the event.

3 - Teams at the event are then assigned points for the event based on their placing and the strength of the event itself. Winning is emphasised and the difference in points between 1st and 4th is more than the difference in points between 10th and 20th.

4 - A new rating for each team is calculated based on their top five results and the process is started over at step 2 until there is no more fluctuation of ratings.

If you'd like to see a detailed version of the calculation, click a team name. The team's overall power rating will be the same as the average power rating for their top five results.

There is no subjective opinion factored into the power ranking.

If the rating is changing quickly, it's because it is in the process of updating.
