Excuse my stupidity here, but how excactly do schools decide what assessment score you get? One of my teachers always says "your mark doesn't matter, only the rank" when referring to assessment tasks (eg I was bummed about getting 17/20 but it ranked 1st so apparently that was as good as 20/20). It doesn't make sense to me if that is the case, but then again none of it really does...feels like the whole system is way behind to me.
So, gaining as many marks is very important. The exact magnitude of each mark separately isn't important - it's how much you differ from first, and from the average on a collective scale which matters.
