Grading update 2016-17 and Grand Prix

July 5, 2017: The 2016-2017 grading year finished on June 30.

Thanks to all who supplied data or information this season. Thanks to our programmers Andrew McHarg and Gordon Rattray for website and program support.

The July 1 FIDE import has been incorporated into this season’s data.

Players can view their grading record by logging in to the online grading system. All result crosstables are listed here grouped into event type https://www.chessscotland.com/grading/results-tree/

If players spot any errors or omissions please contact the organiser of that event or email grading(at)chessscotland.com immediately. It is easier to correct errors now than after the new season starts.

(Click here if any difficulty logging in to online grading system.)

The new grading season will be created shortly after the Scottish Championships are complete. The Scottish Championship will be processed using new 2017-18 season grades and will be the first event of the new season.

Grand Prix
The 2017 Scottish Championship data will not be used for grading in the current 2016-2017 season. However the results will be incorporated into this season’s Grand Prix calculations. All sections of the Scottish Championships will be included twice: as the final GP event of 2016-17 and the first GP event of 2017-18.

Printed Grading List
The print run of the grading list will be limited to those who have pre-ordered a copy. These can be purchased now via the online membership system - cost £5. https://www.chessscotland.com/membership/join/

There will only be a few copies available after the initial orders are fulfilled.
