    British Chess Federation rating, I think they range typically from about 100 to 185 (low scores).

    formula was (fide - 600)/8 = bcf, then they tried (fide - 1250)/5 = bcf on which everyone immediately called nonsense.  i think the new one is (fide - 650)/8 = bcf.

    britain, for some reason, needs to be different :)

    Actually, only England sees the need to be different.  Wales, and I think Scotland, both use elo rating systems.

    does the chess.com rating translate into a BCF rating?

    that's about right, they go from about 0-260

    Germany had a similar system before called INGO rating. Formula was approximately FIDE= 2840- (INGO x 8), so players had typically ratings between 0-300, whereas lower meant better. They switched in the 90ies however.

    its all relative since its based on rewarding one player over another. I believe the BCF system is broadly based on the stat that a 120 player beats a 110 player 6/10 times, for FIDE it might be 1800 vs 1750. Its only ever an indicator of where you are in the pecking order.

    this is true, however I am sure that a large majority of players still refer to the BCF grades as a generic expression like Hoover for vacuum cleaner &c.  Cool

    Conversion between ECF / BCF grade  and FIDE rating

    ECF x 8 + 650 = FIDE
    (FIDE - 650) / 8 = ECF[1]
