A system and method for soft decoding data. A plurality of candidate error corrections may be generated to correct one or more data bits having soft bit information. Each candidate error correction may define suggested changes to the data bits and is associated with a soft bit value. The soft bit values associated the plurality of candidate error corrections may be mapped to a uniform scale, for example, a uniform finite or integer grid. The plurality of candidate error corrections may be ordered to have combined associated mapped values in a monotonically non-decreasing order. One or more of the plurality of candidate error corrections may be soft decoded in the order of the associated mapped values by a decoding operation for each candidate error correction therein with the associated non-mapped soft bit values.
