A) N>20

Placing | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | … | 20 | 21 and after |

Points | 20 | 19 | 18 | 17 | 16 | 15 | … | 1 | 0 |

A bonus of 8 points is given to the first placed competitor; 5 points to the second placed and 3 points to the third.

B) N<20

Placing | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | … | N-1 | N |

Points | N | N-1 | N-2 | N-3 | N-4 | N-5 | … | 2 | 1 |

The bonus is defined as follows:

- For first place: N/3 rounded up to the nearest whole number of points, with a maximum of 7 points;

- For second place: N/5 rounded up to the nearest whole number of points, with a maximum of 4 points;

- For third place: N/7 rounded up tot he nearest whole number of points, with a maximum of 3 points.
