Note: For judging the global awards, British competitors will be ranked first by their overall scores in the top 5%, 15%, 30%, 45% and 60%, creating boundaries for the gold, silver, bronze, high commended and commended awards. Competitors from other countries are not ranked together with their British competitors, but are compared by the boundaries. Chinese competitors with good results will therefore have an increased chance of receiving an award.
