Your internal assessment marks (for each course) are subject to the moderation which is based on two things:
1) your rank and the size of the gaps between each rank
2) the performance of the cohort (all students in your school) in the external HSC Exams.


This is because the MEAN (average) of the HSC marks becomes the MEAN (average) of the assessment marks. So if your school does well in the external HSC exams it could pull you up but if they do bad it could pull you down. The better your cohort does in the external exams, the better moderation your internal mark gets. For example, you are average at your school with an internal assessment mark of 80, but in the HSC exam you get an external mark of 90, which is the average external mark at your school. Your internal assessment mark would become 90 to match the relative standard of your school compared to all other schools.

It's pretty much always good to be in a good school. With really good students in your cohort, the average of school's internal assessment marks would be pushed up significantly if your school performs well as a whole in the external HSC exams. An above average student at a highly ranked school could perform better than even the top student at significantly lower ranked schools. At poorly ranked schools, unless your are ranked first in all your subjects, you run the risk of being dragged down by extremely poor performances of many other students who don't care about studying.

Find top 100 NSW schools (by HSC).

No matter how highly ranked your school is, you need to aim for high ranks to ensure that you are not pulled down.

While your internal assessment mark is moderated, your HSC exam mark is unchanged no matter what school you are from. You keep your own HSC exam mark. So it also comes down to your own performance in the external exams. Your school ranking doesn't affect your external exam marks.

Very thorough: good work.

Does this marking program apply to other states?
