One point was awarded for a win, and one point was taken away for each loss. Final placings were decided by dividing the number of points earned by the number of completed matches (i.e. those that ended in a win or a loss), and multiplying by 100.
The tied match did not count as a finished match for working out the percentage.

The 1905 County Championship was the sixteenth officially organised running of the County Championship, and ran from 4 May to 4 September 1905.
