Tore Dahl in Norway tells me they expect to publish the international results on Tuesday. I'll keep you all posted and alert you when they are made available. I submitted the UK scores (converted to the Norwegian 'all-in' method) this afternoon. Similarly Jane and Jules will be working hard to get your the global Hot 100 results for Monday night.

Anyway, in the meantime, and at lest as important as any of the foregoing :D here are the UK style results relevant to the BQA's Order of Merit and Rankings.

Note - file amended 20.35hrs 3 April.

With a few scores left to come in, our Norwegian friends have posted the results from Saturday'e event, scored according to their 'all-in system' (i.e. all six genres and all 240 questions counting). Some late score submissions notwithstanding, we congratulate Tero Kalliolevo whose 155/240 topped Jesse Honey's 152. A brilliant and not unexpected result there for Tero. Well done also to those nations who placed well. Currently seven different nations - Finland, England, Norway, Estonia, France (Didier), USA and Wales (Mark Grant) - appear in the top 13.

Full results can be seen (and 'manipulated') HERE.

Please can I have another point on Art and Culture on the Norwegian table - I got 9.1 so should have 10 not 9 - these things matter at my end of the table!

I've e-mail Tore. I've also alerted him (and Jules) to the fact Guy Stubbs' scores have been wrongly attributed to Kaye. Oops. Chris

Any particular reason? I see that the multipart questions could have been better marked, i.e alteratives 1,2,3,4 to be paired with A,B,C,D.

It was my error. We had to convert all the UK data entered into our spreadsheet - e.g. a UK score of 9.1 becomes 10 when you have regard to the fact all questions counted fully for Norway scores. While I did a lot or re-typing and use of MSExcel's formatting possibilities, obviously some errors crept in. Apologies. Chris
