WSDC 2013 – End of Round 4 Standings [CORRECTED]


It now appears that I have made a number of errors in inputing data which has resulted in some errors in the intial list of standings. The resulting changes are quite drastic and so I have doubled checked all the data and it should now be consistent with those results released in the pdf documents at http://www.schoolsdebate.com/years/2013/. Anyone is welcome to check if their country’s position is accurately reflected and inform me of any errors.

I won’t comment on the numerical rankings seeing as the changes have shifted the number of teams in each category, making it pointless to list all the changes. As far as I can see, the main errors in the results themselves and the subsequent changes to the standings are as follows:

  • Swaziland have 3 wins and 10 ballots rather than 3 wins and 9 ballots initially indicated.
  • South Africa have 3 wins and 9 ballots rather than 2 wins and 6 ballots initially indicated.
  • Malaysia have 2 wins and 7 ballots rather than 3 wins and 10 ballots initially indicated.
  • Thailand have 2 wins and 6 ballots rather than 2 wins and 7 ballots intially indicated.
  • Scotland have 2 wins and 6 ballots rather than the 2 wins and 5 ballots initially indicated.
  • Slovakia has 1 win and 3 ballots rather than 1 win and 4 ballots as originally indicated.

Once again, apologies for the initial error in calculation. I’m sorry if anyone has been misled by that, the data below should be correct. Particular apologies to the teams Swaziland, South Africa, Malaysia, Thailand, Scotland and Slovakia who have been misrepresented as a result.

Team standings after the first four rounds. Some interesting debates have left a number of conventionally strong teams lower down. Interesting to see both Malaysia, Mexico, Swaziland, Slovenia, UAE and Indonesia all breaking into some new territory here. Quite a few upsets have occured, notably with Scotland, South Korea, South Africa, Wales and the Philippines doing less well than might be expected on the strength of previous results. Break analysis to follow later today when I have time.

  1. Thanks a lot Paul for keeping us updated.
    Saw Swaziland vs Slovakia and it was unanimous. Wondering if you get these from WSDC because that could be important later on in the tournament if the tabulation is off?

    1. I’ll cross check with the provisional results given by WSDC. Ultimately, there is only 1 and only 1 proper official tab. These are just unofficial attempts to mimic that process.
