Evaluation in Artistic Gymnastics (Summary)


The competition of the Memorial Arturo Gander will obviously follow the competitions regulations in force at the International Gymnastics Federation.
At the base there is a scoring code, substantially similar for the two sectors, which enables the individual assessments to be determined according to a division between the "variants" score D and score E.


Score D (Departure) is determined by the following factors:

  • the most difficult elements (9 for the male sector and 7 for the female sector) and the output value are added; these elements have a value of 0.10 (parts A), 0.20 (parts B), 0.30 (parts C), 0.40 (parts D), 0.50 (parts E), 0.60 (parts F), 0.70 (parts G), 0.80 ( parts H) and 0.90 (parts I).
  • bonuses for direct connections
  • the bonus (0.50) for the execution of each of the four structure groups (defined for each oiece of apparatus), regardless of its difficulty value.


These structure groups were introduced in order to prevent the exercises and their content from becoming excessively uniform.


The vault, on the other hand, is assessed according to the specific difficulty of each proposal.


The jumps are taxed with a maximum difficulty quotient of 6.00 points in the male and 6.40 points in the female competition.


Score E (execution) has a basic value of 10 points. The jury intervenes with the deductions starting from this note. There are four types of errors in principle: small error (0.10 deduction), medium error (0.30), serious error (0.50), fall (1 point).


Total of Score D + Score E = Final Score

Example:     Score D6.50
 Score E9.50
 Final Score   16.50


The purpose of the Score Code is to find a fair assessment between the different components of the exercise. The execution and aesthetics must take on greater importance and errors must also be punished more severely. In this way gymnasts will present only those elements that they master with confidence.
