|Voting & Adjudication Rules|
1. Any jury member who teaches a contestant or has taught a contestant within two years of the commencement of the Competition will abstain from discussion and voting on that contestant. A masterclass to the contestant within six months of the first day of the competition is to be deemed to be teaching. All jury members must declare such teaching at the commencement of the Competition.
2. For each separate round of the Competition, each jury member will award a point score to each contestant by secret vote. For each round, the range of points is:
Preliminary Round 1 0 – 100
Preliminary Round 2 50 – 100
Final Round 75 – 100
The jury members are required to use the whole range of points available when awarding a score for each contestant.
3. The total number of points awarded to each contestant for a particular round will be divided by the total number of jury members voting on that contestant. This average is determined to two decimal places and then the following correction procedure is applied. If the number of points awarded by a juror is different from the average of the total points obtained by a competitor in any round by more than:
20 points in Preliminary Round 1,
10 points in Preliminary Round 2, and
5 points in the Final Round,
then a second average for that competitor which excludes the points outside the above allowable ranges will be calculated. The marks allocated by the juror which were excluded by this process shall be adjusted so as to award a mark within the new allowable range as close as possible to the mark the juror had allocated A final average for the competitor will be determined.
4. The chairman of the jury is responsible for the tallying of scores for each contestant in each round. There will be two independent scrutineers for the tally who, along with the chairman of the jury, will sign the tally sheet for each round.
