I understand the maths, but saying that the scoring is inaccurate is, well, inaccurate.
The point I was trying to make with your score is that using the system that the BFTA use, your score was accurate.
It may not be the best mathematical process, but the scoring is meant to be relative, not absolute, to allow for conditions on the day.
If you want to propose a different scoring system to the AGM, then please do.
