#### 3 Call Back System for Promotion Through to the Final

**3.1 Call-Back System**

In all rounds except the final there is no need to rank competitors. This is because couples are simply competing for promotion to the next round of the competition. Therefore a call-back system will be used in all rounds up to the final.

The Chief Judge will choose the number of people to be promoted to the next round. The judges will choose who they think should be promoted to the next round. They will not rank the competitors in any particular order, they will judge for each dancer if they should be

- Promoted
- Possibly promoted
- Not promoted

Competitors will then be
ranked by the total number of 1s received from the judges. The chief
judge chooses where the break will be made. This will either be a
predetermined number or percentage or where a natural break in the rank
occurs.

If this

**method**does not produce a clear result, and only then, will the "2"s be used to make the decision about where the break will fall.*An example of the Call-Back system is given in Appendix 2 - below.*

**Appendix 2 - Example of Call Back System**

Firstly, the individual judges are told how many people they should 'call back' for each section.

In
the example below there are 3 heats with 12 couples to be promoted. The
judges will be instructed to select 12 couples for promotion plus a
number of couples who could possibly be promoted – in this case 4. The
judging sheets will list the numbers of all couples in the heat - those
to be promoted will receive a mark of 1, those possibly promoted will
receive a mark of 2. Those who the judge consider should not be promoted
are marked 3 or left blank.

These individual judging
sheets are then collated by the scorer and scrutineer to produce the
list of those to be promoted (see example below). This will produce a
list of those to be promoted to the next round.

To
calculate who should be promoted the number of scores of 1 received by
each couple will be calculated. If this produces 12 couples with a
higher count than the others no further calculations will be made. If
there is no clear break in the rank which gives 12 clear winners the
number of votes of 2 will be taken into account. The Chief Judge will
break any ties if this fails to produce a clear result.

In the example below, scores collated from all judges:

Running Total

3 couples received 7 scores of "1" 3 couples

1 couple received 6 scores of "1" 4 couples

2 couples received 5 scores of "1" 6 couples

4 couples received 4 scores of "1" 10 couples

4 couples received 3 scores of "1" 14 couples

Running Total

3 couples received 7 scores of "1" 3 couples

1 couple received 6 scores of "1" 4 couples

2 couples received 5 scores of "1" 6 couples

4 couples received 4 scores of "1" 10 couples

4 couples received 3 scores of "1" 14 couples

Therefore, we need to select 2 couples for promotion from the couples receiving 3 1s. To do this we count the number of 2s given to them. In this example (with seven judges) couples 129 and 108 are promoted as they, respectively, received 4 and 3 2s from judges, the other two couples receiving less.
