Qualification for the Finals: Calculation

We are inviting 576 students from 5-12 grades to compete in Finals.

To calculate who qualified for finals, we calculate:

(The number of participants in each grade level, divided by Total participants) times 576.

The cut off score is not necessarily the same for each grade. You will find more information about each student’s ranking and score within your admin account.
