Q. The skaters decide to use the option of the third Twizzle from the
Group C features. If there is a mistake by one or both partners in
performing these “extra” Twizzles, how does it affect the Level and the
A. It only affects the number and type of features counted for the level.
The Judges should consider this mistake as a poor exit and not as one
of the required Twizzles and, while establishing their basic GOE
according to the marking guide included in Communication 1522 page
29, they should lower the “entry/completion” criteria by one or several
grades, like for any other type of poor exit. This may result in lowering
the GOE by one grade.
