FEATS now uses the NDFA marking system, although in past years there was one addition specific to FEATS. The standard NDFA marking system is:
- 40 points for acting
- 35 points for production
- 15 points for stage presentation
- 10 points for O, E & A (originality, endeavour and achievement)
Total: 100 marks
To these, FEATS has for many years added 10 points for Innovation, making a total of 110 points. From 2009, however, these additional points were dropped.
