From 1986-2017 the overall team champions title was awarded based on a team’s combined scores from all disciplines and divisions of the Student National Taekwondo Championship; from the 2017-18 season onward it has been awarded based on overall team scores from all disciplines and divisions across all events of the Championships Series.
From 2019-20 BUCS points (which includes both Team and Individual BUCS point sources) are awarded the end of the BSTF BUCS Championships Series. The Overall BSTF Team Champions top 10 list is based only on the Team ranking formula; these results may be compared with other Team ranking results going back to the original student taekwondo championships in 1987. Also note, tallies of individual medals won across a season do not directly correlate with final BUCS standings, because larger competitions award more ranking points towards the end of year ranking positions; Individual A-class divisions award BUCS points for final placements 1st-4th are the most significant source of BUCS points, but have relatively less impact on the Team ranking. There may be a different winner when comparing the Overall BSTF Team Champions to the Overall BUCS Points By Institution rankings because the Team calculation includes results from all A, B and C class athletes, while only student-athletes in A-class individual divisions may win BUCS Individual titles and associated BUCS points. See the rules and regulations for full details regarding BUCS point scoring.
The primary measure of team performance from 2019-20 onwards will be the Overall BUCS Points By Institution ranking list at the conclusion of each BSTF BUCS Championships Series. First place on this list represents the institution with the most BUCS points (from combined Team and Individual BUCS point sources) won in total at the end of Series.
The secondary measure of team performance will be the Overall BSTF Team Champions ranking list (from the Team ranking calculation only).
