Judges who came for analysis and markings even they are not guided the rules for how to divide marks, no waste control in kitchen as wastage was 60 % of the production no judge went in kitchen to see how students are performing and how clean there tables are, wastage was too much, more attention is given to artificial decoration then the dish presentation.
