Novice, beginner, intermediate, advanced, elite?

Are there any threads here that have tried to set out standards for various games in terms of levels?

For example, a novice is an untrained memory, which can remember 4 ± 1 items in one of the memory games.

A beginner is someone who has started training their memory and can do a bit better than a novice. Maybe they can remember 10 items or something.

An expert on cards might be someone who can break 30s or something.

Is there any data or thoughts on this?

All I know is that they work with a rating system on Memory League. The threshold for top memory athletes seems to be around 2000 but I am not sure.

Thanks! I hadn’t seen that yet. Now I have some benchmarks.
