How HSC Scaling works

There are no secrets to scaling. All the information that can be known on the subject of scaling is publicly available, and anyone trying to sell this knowlegde to you aren't being upfront about it. There is a wealth of knowledge floating around on the internet about the subjects of scaling, aligning and moderation, some accurate and some mis-information.

Our teaching staff has kindly put together some helpful articles on these subjects free for all to read. We go into some detail on the mathematical principles behind each process and why they necessary for a fair HSC. The bottom line is that knowledge of scaling, while interesting, will not help you in your own HSC (unless you are in year 10 or below, and have not yet selected your subjects) because the entire effect of scaling is predetermined once you've selected your subjects for Preliminary.
