Names & Faces Event Question


A question to the mentathletes, for the names & faces recall event, do you need to complete a row correctly to get your points like the number, random words or binary events or is each face scored individually?

Like I can just miss two names in a row and still get the third name correct? Am I awarded the points for the third name or are points taken from my score for the row?

Thanks... :)

From Boris Konrad: Each face, even each name, counts individually. The faces are not given in order but in a new random order! Therefore you would have to know all the names to be able to recall them in order, which is not possible. In summary: Each correct first- and each correct surname gives you a point no matter how many names you got correct in that row.

Could anyone please tell me where I could get the official written rules explaining this and the correction method for other official WMC tests as well?
I went to WMC site and found nothing written on this subject.

I would like to know cause I'm organizing a competition with a Random Word Test and would like to have it well corrected.

thanks in advance, if anyone can help.
