British Fencing has now undertaken a review of the Cadet and Junior ranking schemes on the back of a series of issues arising from the current system.
The review looked at linking points more simply to results (similar to the FIE system) leading to easier calculations, a reduction in errors and less labour intensive ranking investigations, whilst still comparing results fairly.
A widespread consultation process was undertaken with helpful input from many people, including ranking coordinators, weapon leads, coaches and parents.
The final document setting out this new method of calculating points is now available in the GBR section here.
