Marks are aligned to the performance descriptors.
They are not scaled

They aren't scaled, everyone does the same paper. They are made into percentages, which is easy, as all except english were out of 100. English was out of 90, so 81 would be a band 6 (90%).

I doubt thats it and its too easy. I rather believe its percentile.
