There's a difference between complaining and recognizing a system put in place that is flawed throughout. The new ranking system for 1A is nothing like the other classifications in regards to advancement. After grouping by individual ratings (1-1-1s together, 1-1-2s together, etc.) it is strictly judges preference. No rubric or sheet that is similar to area. That is worthy of complaining considering UIL has taken time and effort over literal decades to limit the amount of subjectivity in judging and prioritize objectivity in determining who should or should not advance at all levels. With 1A it seems as if they are going backwards for the sake of equality and not equity.
