BUCS points available

Please note that BUCS Points will not be allocated where the minimum number of competitors/teams has not been reached, or where there are not enough individual scores to extract a team score. Furthermore, an individual/team must have beaten another individual/team to score BUCS Points (i.e. if 3 individuals/teams compete in an event, only 2 will score BUCS points). This does not apply to extracted teams.

Individuals/teams are regarded as having compete if they started the event, therefore DNS will not be regarded as having competed. Similarly, medals will be awarded according to the accrual of BUCS Points. For example if only 3 individuals/teams can compete in an event only Gold and Silver medals will be awarded.

BUCS points are available here
