# Aerials Judging And Scoring

### From FIS Freestyle wiki

Each jump will be judged out of 30.0 points on three basic components by a panel of seven judges using a split scoring system. This score is then multiplied by a predetermined jump degree of difficulty to come up with the competitor’s final score.

The breakdown of scoring components:
**Air** + **Form** – 70 % (Air 20%, Form 50%)
**Landing** – 30%

**Air and Form**
Air and form make up a combined 70 percent of the total score and five judges evaluate each aerialist’s jump on a 7.0 scale. The high and low marks are discarded and the three remaining scores are added together with a maximum score of 21.0.

**Landing**
The landing makes up the last 30 percent and two judges evaluate the landing on a 3.0 scale. The average of the two scores is then multiplied by three to obtain the overall landing mark, with the maximum score of 9.0.

**Total**
The total jump score is the sum of the air, form and landing multiplied by the jump’s **DD** (degree of difficulty). The maximum score is 30.0. The maximum degree of difficulty is 4.9, so the maximum possible score for one jump is 147.
