You decide which dives you are going to perform before the competition, in mens competition 6 dives have to be performed from the 6 different diving groups. Women have to perform 5 different dives.

Each dive has a degree of difficulty, simple dives may have a DD as low as 1.2 but the hardest dives have DD's of up to 4.1.

The diver performs the dive in front of 5-7 judges. The judges mark from 0-10 with 1/2 marks in between. when the judges have presented their scores, for example with 5 judges: 6, 6.5, 6, 7, 5.5. The lowest and highest score's are ignored to get the average 3 marks, in this case: 6, 6 & 6.5 (the 5.5 and 7 were ignored). 6,6 & 6.5 makes 18.5 this score is multiplied by the DD to give the final score of the dive. So if the dive had a DD of 1.2 then the score would be 22.2, but if the DD of the dive was 4.1, the score would be 75.85

Hope this makes sense.
