    Question about calculating World Standing Points?

    http://www.isuresults.com/ws/ws/wsmen.htm

    Is it just me, or are the total points for some skaters being calculated incorrectly? I assume that for each skater, the point total is just the sum of all points indicated on the boxes on the right. For example for Kolyada, I summed all the numbers on the right to get 5448, but it says 4432 on the left.

    Your assumption is incorrect.

    ISU Communication 1629 explains why.

    Kolyada:

    972 + 709 + 648 + 400 + 292 + 292 + 300 + 300 + 300 + 219 = 4432

    It's really easy. There are 3 groups of scores: ISU Championships (Group 1), GP Series (Group 2), and Selected International (Group 3)

    To calculate the WS points you sum the top 2 scores for Group 1 and the top 4 scores for both Groups 2 and 3.

    Using Jason Brown as an example:

    Top 2 from Group 1: 680 + 551 = 1231
    Top 4 from Group 2: 472 + 360 + 360 + 252 = 1444
    Top 4 from Group 3: 300 + 270 + 219 + 210 = 999
    WS Points: 1231 + 1444 + 999 = 3674

    Thanks for the explanation!
