Hi again,
While we are on this subject, how do we know what a score of say 370 really means. Is it similar to scoring 80% for example on sample papers, higher, lower?

If you haven't been through it before it is very difficult to know whether the marks your child is getting on sample papers is enough!

Can anyone shed any light?

Thanks

The answer to that is, it's really really difficult to say. The different brands of practice paper can be very different in how difficult they are. If it helps at all, my son scored just under 400 this year and I would estimate he was scoring typically 85-90% in practice papers. But there were a few practice papers that he found much harder and scored significantly lower on, and a few he found easier and scored higher on. It's a very difficult art to try to predict scores too accurately, even before you factor in whether they'll have a wobble on the day.

As the standardised score is a comparison to the cohort, it mostly depends on how difficult the paper was generally.

As posters have shared their raw scores in various threads, it is not unusual to get a 'full score' on something like 80% of correct answers.
