What if my child doesn't do well in the HSC trials? chevron_right
Don't panic! It's not all doom and gloom. Without getting into the details of moderation and scaling, your child's trial mark influences their internal rank and mark. However, these ranks and marks go through a moderation process – and the results are heavily dependent on their final HSC exams. The best thing your child can do is reset – and focus on the future.
