The concept of score It is used in several Latin American countries to mention the points that an athlete or a team have added in the framework of a competition. The points, in this sense, reflect the annotations or the achievements .
For example: "The Russian gymnast got the ideal score in the first stage of the test", "Our team needs the game to have a low score to have more chances of winning", "The Catalan team remains with perfect score in the league, adding twelve points in four games".
Scores can have different levels. In the case of tennis , there are different kinds of points: points proper (15, 30, 40), the games or games (from 1 to 6 or 7, depending on the case) and the sets (the accumulation of 6 or 7 points). Who wins two or three sets, according to the type of match , he wins. Therefore, by observing the score of a tennis match we can find different values.
At soccer , the goals They determine who wins the game. The winning team is awarded three points: the score, therefore, is the accumulated of these points in a table of positions .
However, within the field of football, it should not be overlooked that the score refers not only to victories but also to draws. Thus, when two teams achieve the same result, both add a point to their total so far. And so it will be reflected in the competition list, where anyone can also check the number of games won, tied and lost their team has won.
There are times when the score is determined by a jury , as observed. That happens with rhythmic gymnastics, synchronized swimming and other competitions of Athletics .
The notion of scoring can also be used to qualify different things: “Critics gave an average score of 8.7 points to this movie”.
In the field of culture, such as literature or theater as well as cinema, the score is much more subjective. That is, it is up to the tastes, preferences, predisposition and even specific criteria of each person to give a work some points or others, since there is no scale as such.
Hence, a movie or a play, for example, can receive a good score from a critic and yet a very bad one from the hands of another. And there are many subjective aspects that in the case of art are shuffled.
Within the educational field, the score is also widely used. In this case, it is used, for example, to determine the grade that each student has in order to access a university degree in question. Thus, if a career requires an 8 to enter and Manuel only has a 7.6 score, based on his academic record and the tests he has been required to perform, he will not be able to study it.
