The Scottish Grading System attempts to give an accurate measure of a player’s chess strength, based on games in tournaments, leagues and clubs throughout Scotland, and on games in competitions outside Scotland. The Grading System has been tested and refined over many years and the gradings it gives Scottish chessplayers are generally respected as according with their own opinions of player ‘strength’.

The Chess Scotland Grading System is based on the ELO International grading system devised by Professor Arpad Elo, which is also used by FIDE, the World Chess federation, and most national chess associations around the world. Because a chess game can have only three clearly defined results - win, lose or draw - any player’s performance can be evaluated with great accuracy.
