## Points System

The scoring system combines the finishing positions of each College's crews in in Torpids and Eights into a single number.

It works as follows

• Points are allocated for each of the four events: Men's/Women's Torpids/Eights and added together for the College's total
• One point is allocated for the boat finishing at the bottom of each event
• N points are allocated for the boat finishing head of each event, where N is the number of crews in the event: N varies from 93 for Men's Eights to 63 for Women's Torpids (i.e, the 'bigger' the event, the more points are allocated for the Headship).
• For intermediate positions a simple linear scale (1, 2, ... N) wouldn't work since a College would gain as many points for a bump at the bottom of the river as a bump for the Headship. Instead there's an exponential scale where the number of points for finishing position i is calculated as

Points = N(N-i)/(N-1)
This means that the difference between Head and 2nd on the river is 4-5 points depending on the value of N, while between 2nd bottom and bottom is less than 0.1 points.

The tables below show total points for each College and subtotals for each event (MT = Men's Torpids, etc), all rounded to nearest integer for this year and last year. The allocation of points to individual crews and their finishing positions can be found here: [2015], [2014], [2013] and [2012].
