Scoring

Each skill is scored from 0 to 10 points. In order to advance, students must accumulate a minimum of 144 points out of 180 total points, this equates to an average score of 8 or better on each skill. Any skill scored 0-2 will be an immediate failure, so be sure you review each skill and ask a coach if you have any questions.
