These point totals are then added and averaged with the number of competitions attended. In order to qualify for a ranking spot, a choir must attend at least 3 competitions or they will be disqualified.
In the event of a tie, it is broken by looking at the records of awards in this order over points: Grand Champion records, Best Vocals, then Best Choreography - ties will be broken after final rankings are posted.
After ties are broken, choirs are awarded bonus points. These bonus points include the Premier Event Series and Achievement Bonus points. Achievement points are awarded based on the choirs you actually competed against. For each choir you defeated which was ranked in the top 10 before bonus points are added per time they were defeated, the choir will receive 7 additional points before average, and for each choir ranked from 11 - 20, the choir will receive 5 additional points.
Premier Event points will be added for choirs that compete at competitions deemed to be "premier status", as deemed by the NSCRS Premier Competition committee. These events are voted on by the committee each week to be the toughest competitions across the nation - meaning that only a small percentage of competitions will be deemed a Premier Event. Each choir that competes at a Premier Competition will be awarded 3 additional points before average.
Note that for rankings, only placements or competitions in which a group participated in a TIER I competition will be counted towards rankings. Tier II or Tier III do not count towards competitions competed in and will not help or hurt a group in rankings. If a Tier II or Tier III group places in Finals, however, then they are entered into the system and are eligible for a ranking position. This also applies to unisex groups. Also note that these rankings, or any ranking system, does not accurately reflect the talent and skills of any choir, and should not be used for betting or personal gain. Choirs should participate in Show Choir for the joy of performing and not simply to win. Rankings are usually updated by Tuesday or Wednesday following a competition.
