I have discovered that part of my problem was to do with strcmpy so I have scrapped that for now but i still have probs getting the correct message (not as many probs though)

//take 20 throws output message for each throw

#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>
#include <string.h>

void main()
 i, j, k,

 double standarddev; ???
 //char    message[11][10];

 for( i= 0; i<throws; i++ )
      printf("Enter score > ");
      scanf("%d",&score );
 average = total/throws;

for(j=0;j<throws;j++ )     
    sum+= (score[j] - average) * (score[j] - average);
    // would this be better:-  sum+=pow(score[j] - average,2)

standarddev = sqrt(sum / (throws -1));

  for(j=0; j < throws; j++)
      if(score[j] >= average + 1.5 * standarddev)
     printf("\n%d \t %d \texcellent",j+1,score[j]);
      if(score[j] >= average + 0.5 * standarddev)
     printf("\n %d \t %d \tGood",j+1,score[j]);
      if(score[j] >= average - 0.5 * standarddev)
      printf("\n%d \t%d \tFair",j+1,score[j]);

      if(score[j] >= average - 1.5 * standarddev)
     printf("\n%d \t %d \tPoor",j+1,score[j]);

      if(score[j] <  average - 1.5 * standarddev)
     printf("\n%d \t %d \tVery Poor",j+1,score[j]);

    ///////// check variables //////////
  //for(k=0; k< throws; k ++)
  //    {
  //     printf("\n%d\t%d\t%s",k+1,score[k], message[k]);
   //   }
 // printf("\nsum = %d",sum);
 // printf("\tstdv = %d",(int)standarddev);
  //printf("\taverage = %d",average);
