The grading system of 1. Excellent Select 90%, 2. Excellent 85-90%, 3. Very Good 80-84% and 4. Good 75-79% are all accepted as a pass while below 75% is a fail. All passes are uniformly awarded 100 marks in the KUSA Discipline arena. These points are added to any other points awarded either in other KUSA Disciplines or the Conformation ring and are tallied at the end of the year for a top position in the end year accolades.
The CBA is a highly desirable achievement – the “Alpha and Omega” of breeding and achievement.
The test are only conducted by KUSA officials with the necessary training and accreditation.
