Nicholl Fellowship Scoring
Here's a quick generic description of Nicholl scoring. Keep in mind that scoring is based on a 100-point scale. During the First Round, every script is read at least twice and every script received at least two scores. The higher of those two scores will determine which scripts would receive a third read.
To receive a third read, a script might need a score of 80 or higher. This is designated a "high-score" for the purpose of selecting reader comment excerpts and also is occasionally called a "strong positive score".
To determine which scripts advance to the Quarterfinal Round (about 5%), the best two of the three scores are considered.
Designation Scoring N/A Two scores under 60 (2 reads) One positive score One score under 60; one score 60-79 (2 reads) One strong score Two scores under 60; one score 80+ (3 reads) Two positive scores Two combined scores totaling 120-142 (2 reads) Top 20% Two combined scores totaling 143-147 (2-3 reads) Top 15% Two combined scores totaling 148-152 (2-3 reads) Top 10% Two combined scores totaling 153-157 (2-3 reads) Next 100 Two combined scores totaling 158-159 (3 reads) Quarter-Finalist Two combined scores totaling 160+ (3 reads) Semi-Finalist Five combined scores averaging 80-85+ (5 reads) Top 30 Five combined scores averaging 85+ (5 reads) Finalist Eight combined scores averaging 86-90+ (8 reads) Fellowship Top 5
