Sightreading also uses different conferences, but solely for the purpose of having all schools in a conference read the same piece. Marching band contests are held annually in the fall, and all other music contests are held in the spring.
The rating scale used in UIL music events is as follows: A superior performance for the event and the class of participants being judged; worthy of the distinction of being recognized as a first-place winner.
An unusual performance in many respects but not worthy of the highest rating due to minor defects in performance or ineffective interpretation. A performance of distinctive quality. An average performance, but not outstanding, showing accomplishment and marked promise, but lacking in one or more essential qualities. Division IV Below Average.
A below average performance not worthy of higher rating because of basic weaknesses in most of the fundamental factors. Much room for improvement. The director should check his or her methods, instrumentation, etc. Any marching band that earns a Division I rating at the region competition qualifies to advance.

In the event that less than two bands in a conference earn a Division I rating at the region competition, the judging panel will select two bands from that conference to advance. At the area competition, bands are ranked against the other bands in their own conferences and the top bands from each area advance to the state competition. The exact number bands that will advance from area to state is dependent on the number competing bands in each conference.
