School of the Year

The School of the Year is calculated based on the final results from entries submitted by students to this years Awards. Points are awarded to each School based on data collected from entrants in Student of the Years (Games + VFX/Animation), Film of the Year, and Game of the Year categories*. The following data is then weighted to give each School their overall score:

  • Number of students who entered
  • Number of finalists
  • Number of Highly Commended
  • Number of Runner-Up
  • Number of Winners
  • Average Rank of Entry per School **

*The Bootcamp Placement category results are not included in calculations as selections by Judges are based on suitability to existing/upcoming jobs at studios and additional individual criteria per studio. In addition to this, the People's Choice category results are not included as this is a public vote and not voted by the official judging panel.

**Judges provide each entry to the Awards with a Rank. This is one of three possible levels: Slayer (A), Pressed (B), Thirsty (C).  For each School, the average Rank for their students entries is totalled to give each school an Average Rank of Students.
