- Points will be awarded to those finishing in the top 50% of each category, (or 75% for cadets) providing their finishing position is within the L32
- Top 6 results will count towards rankings
The points for a competition are calculated by multiplying the NIF x Position multiplier.
To work out the fencers NIF value the table below would be used. After the BYC’s in May the NIF is reset and fencers are allocated their new value which they hold until the following May.
|Competition Position||Position||NIF Score|
|Cadet Rankings||Top 6||15|
|(based on rankings on the date of the BYCs)||7th-12th||13|
The conventional position multipliers that are used at senior competitions are designed to spread over 64 places, and are not ideal for a system that only gives points for a L32, or for comps with only 15 to 20 entries. We therefore recommend the EF U15 ranking multiplier which is as follows:
