Rating/Grading

The April FIDE Rating will be used to determine a player’s FIDE rating. If a player does not have a FIDE Rating, we will use the Chess Scotland grading list.

For players who do not appear in the standard list, other lists may be used at the discretion of the organisers. Ungraded players must provide evidence for the organisers to assess their playing strength and any previous known grade must be declared.
