It's fairly straightforward. Throwing your opponent on their back or submitting your opponent on their back is an instant win (ippon). You perform either of these actions to a lesser extent you can score a wasari (essentially a half ippon), or a yuko (the smallest score).

If no one wins the game within the time limit they look at points scored. If a tie they continue to fight sudden death to first point scored. If still a draw judges decide.

That's the basic gist of it.
