The World Universities Debating
Council maintains the official ranking of institutions’ performances at the
World Championships. The rankings are
based on each institution’s past five performances at Worlds, with an
institution’s score made up of all the points gained by that institution’s
individual teams throughout the competition. These rankings provide a rough guide of cumulative performance at previous WUDCs, but should by no means be taken as an "official" ranking of the competitive success of a given school.
The procedures for ranking teams are laid out in Article 33 of the WUDC Constitution:
a. Where three teams advance from an elimination round, two points shall be awarded to each advancing team;
b. Where two teams advance from an elimination rounds, three points shall be awarded to each advancing team;
c. Where one team is selected as the Champion in the Main Grand Final, six points shall be awarded to that team.
