OK, this will be little complicated, but keep reading if you want to know the details. The score is calculated using the following parameters:
- number of correct AND wrong answers
- time used to finish the quiz
- number of used Fifty-Fifties.
Calculation is the following
- The number of correct answers is multiplied by 1000 and then divided with the natural logarithm of the second used. Why this? Well, because we get quite a good relation between knowledge and speed with it, still preferring knowledge but not underestimating the speed. If two will have the same number of correct and wrong answers, the one using less time will win.
- Then for every wrong answer you loose 10%. By doing this we de-stimulate "bluffing" - sine there's always a 25% that you get the correct answer (1 out of 4).
- At the end you loose for every used Fifty-Fifty 4% of the total score, which means: it's better to respond with a Fifty-Fifty then not to respond but if you don't know the answer even after using Fifty-Fifty, you'll loose 14% of your score.
