Rule 6.0 - Determining Relative Placements

Each individual Judge's numerical scores are converted to his/her relative placements. This involves taking each Judge's scores on a highest to lowest basis. In a five couple contest, a Judge's highest score would receive a relative placement of 1, and his/her lowest score would receive a relative placement of 5.

Example: For Judge "A" -

Final places must be awarded to all couples who have a majority of placements for the position under review before any of the remaining couples can be considered.

When a final place has been allocated, draw a line across the remaining place columns for the couple receiving the placement.

During the placement process, a placement column must never be skipped for the unplaced couples.

When summing relative placements at a particular level, use only the relative placements that form the majority at that level to create the sum.

Rule 8.0 - Allocation of Positions - Simple Case

The winner of a particular contest is the couple who is placed first by an absolute majority of the judges. The couple who is placed second or better by an absolute majority of the judges receives second place. The remaining positions are allocated in a similar manner.
