					                             Gymnastic Scores
In gymnastics, the gymnasts are awarded scored in two areas by a panel of judges.

A gymnast’s technical merit marks are based on the difficulty of the routine, its
variety, and how well she/he does the skills.

The gymnasts composition and style marks are based on the originality of the
routine, how well she/he keeps time to the music and how artistically
she/he performs.

The marks are given in numbers between 1-10. 10 is considered a perfect score.
Judges can also give decimal numbers.(See example)
