The 'Olympic' Medal Table
Ranking schools by how many correct answers they submit over an entire year is not necessarily the best way to assess the success of a school. It is definitely not the most interesting. The table below uses medals* which are awarded at the end of each week to schools who come 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in that week's leaderboard.
Just like the Olympic medal table schools are ranked on the number of gold medals they have won followed by silver and then bronze in the case of a tie. This table updates every Monday and is not live like some of the other school leaderboards.
*please note all medals are figurative and no actual medals exist or are awarded in real life.




The 'Formula 1' Points Table
This is probably my favourite of all the ways of ranking schools. The table below uses points* which are awarded at the end of each week to schools who come in the top ten in that week's leaderboard.
Points are awarded in the same ratio as the points awarded to the top 10 finishers in an F1 Grand Prix. The distribution of how these are awarded is shown below as well. This table updates every Monday and is not live like some of the other school leaderboards.
*please note points do not mean prizes.


Below is the distribution of points each week for the 'Formula 1' table that is above.

1st 25
2nd 18

5th 10
