### How do weights impact the score?

The formula used to calculate scores is as follows:

The score of a section = [ Sum of ( score of a subsection * weightage of that section) ] / ( Sum of weights of all subsections )

For instance, let's say section A has two subsections Aa and Ab with weights 2 and 3 respectively. A member scores a candidate 3 stars and 4 stars in these subsections respectively. The score of that section will be calculated like,

= [(score_of_Aa)(weight_of_Aa) + (score_of_Ab)(weight_of_Ab) ] / (weight_of_Aa + weight_of_Ab)

= (3*2 + 4*3) / (2 + 3)

= 18 / 5

= 3.6 stars on section A
