The GAA’s A and B standards are the 8th ranked, the 16th ranked 2014 African performances, respectively; Where there are fewer than 24 African performances on the 2014 rankings list, the A standard is adjusted to the 5th performance, and the B standard to the 10th performance.

Note that the B standard is primarily used to support GAA’s developmental agenda. For a more complete interpretation of how the standards above will be applied, see the GAA 2015 Selection Policy,

The final adjustment was made to ensure that our B-standard was not below the minimum mark set by CAA for the African Games; where our selection ranking standard fell below the CAA mark, the former was adjusted to equal the CAA mark.
