When my daughter was in L3-L8 we thought scores of 9.5 and above were good and a 38 AA. We were definitely disappointed with anything under 37. At L9 it became a lot more difficult and an 8.5 was an good score on bars for her. This year for L10, we are just hoping she survives and hopefully competes all event. It's all relative, what some people think are good scores aren't good to others. Not all gymnasts practice the same number of hours, have the same natural ability or coaches with same ability. At this point for my daughter, a successful meet has nothing to do with the score, but how happy she is at the end of the meet and if she had a good time. I used to think that she couldn't have a good meet without good scores, but that definitely is not the case.
