NCF judging fix

THE NATIONAL CULTURAL FOUNDATION (NCF) is on a campaign to “demystify” the ranking system of judging used in its annual calypso competitions.

Chief judge of the Sweet Soca contest, Leslie Lett Jr, defended the system at a press briefing yesterday.

“It is nothing new; it has been suggested for over two decades,” he said.

“Now the rank order system was a good response by the NCF to judges’ contention that the addition of merely raw scores – a purely mathematical exercise – was not the best system to determine a winner. You are always working in progress to get a system that is going to most accurately reflect the views of the majority of judges, and there are some anomalies that were identified; thinking that it was a pure mathematical exercise and just adding raw scores.” (JS/TG)
