What are leaderboards and how do they work?
All our competitions have leaderboards where you can see how you are going against students around the world!
Most Grok competitions are based on points. You can earn points by answering problems. There's more information about points in our FAQ: What do points mean on Grok?
You can see how the leaders of the competition are going by looking at the leaderboard. Access the leaderboard from the Leaderboard button on the competition page.
The leaderboard shows you the top students in the competition, and how many points they have. Only the top students are listed on the leaderboard. On the leaderboard page it will explain how many students are shown and what the minimum score is to make it onto the leaderboard.
For some competitions, we split up the leaderboard based on your grade on Grok:
- Primary = grades up to and including grade 6
- Junior = grade 7 and 8
- Intermediate = grade 9 and 10
- Senior = grade 11 and 12
Some Grok competitions have tournaments! This might be a voting tournament (like the Web.Comp Design Tournament) or a game tournament. Tournaments have a separate Tournament Leaderboard, which you can access from the Tournament button on the competition page.
The leaderboard shows you the top students in the tournament. Only the top students are listed on the leaderboard. On the leaderboard page it will explain how the leaderboard is calculated.
