Can you reveal what's the weightage for each question? and the breakdown for the various categories of BSR? Thanks!

sure, the questions are break down into 5 set of 6 questions each. The first set is 0.2 for each question, the 2nd & 3rd set is 0.3 each. The 4th set plus the first 2 question of the 5th set is 0.4 each, the balance are 0.5.
when i did the BSR, i take it as how often do I execute the stroke in a game. For example, the forehand & backend drive, I may know how to execute it, but I never use it a game, thus I select as "No".
Likewise, the question on tapping loose ball on net, I selected "No" as I dont always score point from that.

setup a recognise private institution (with recognise tester) to assess our level,
eg: pay sgd 10 for the 1 hr assessment, and they will give u a cert / ID card indicated your skill level , and the ID is valid for 18mths, after expiry go for another test.
or u can go for another test when u feel tat u are not satisfied / no longer in the level indicated in ur ID.
just an idea tat pop up in my mind

I have to admit this is an interesting thread, so many ideas on how to define a beginner, so here's my input on how to classify someone as a beginner, intermediate or advanced. I dont think you are going to get anywhere trying to classify people into different categories. I think it should be simply divided based on groups that are playing, for example.
Group1- Hey we are pretty damn good, almost to the level of being able to give the best in the country a tough fight, so don't bother playing with us if you play like crap!
Group2-We were once good, in fact we still sit around and talk about the glory days! So dont bother coming if you have no stories to share, and we have no time for anyone who cannot leap 3 feet off the ground before executing a perfect smash
Group3-We actually feel that we are superior to the rest of you, and will look at you with absolute disgust and contempt if you happen to miss a shot. So dont bother coming if you are planning to miss a few shots, it will just totally spoil our day and you will totally hate that.
Group4-We are not bothered with your level of play, just a bunch of slightly overweight people looking to have some fun. Yeah we will miss a lot of shots but at least we will not make you feel like scum of the earth. At the end of the day we will go back to our families with a big fat smile on our faces.
In every aspect of our life we have people seeking to classify us in one way or the other, so unless you have serious ambitions of turning professional in the near future, learn to relax, take a deep breath and have some fun. Just check with the group you are planning to join if they are training for some special purpose, if they are and you harbour the same ambition then do join them, if not look for people who dont give a crap about classfication.

I happily declare that I belong to Group 4 although I am not only slightly but actually very much overweight!!!
Seriously though, it is very much the reception and the attitude of the members of the group make me decide if I will join the second time, and not so much of the skill level gap. I donot really mind if I won or lost most of the matches as long as the group I played with donot mind my company and I enjoy their company too!

Even the ibf ranking system isnt great. If one plays lots of tournament, u can pick up lotta points. Take for ex, in the 06 US open, the MS final, the #79 japanese guy beat a #24 canadian guy.

Based on all the discussions above ,perhaps apart from beginner/intermediate/advanced, there should be an additional description to explain the 'attitude' of the group.
The suggested classification is LEISURE / COMPETITIVE. EG: INTERMEDIATE - LEISURE, BEGINNER - LEISURE, INTERMEDIATE - COMPETITIVE.
Leisure meaning that thought the players are of a certain skill level, they play for fun, and if you are a weaker player, they are willing to say, reduce the power of their smash, keep the rally going, rather than going for the kill.
On the other hand, there is competitive which means that the players aim to give 100% in every match, no chance given, kill any weak shot etc.
This is something like the group 3 / group 4 suggested by others.

Grading Badminton Skills
I'm a bit confused on the postings on the level of play/players.
How do you define each level and know which level you're at?
