I was reading about historic cut off marks for various schools on their respective website. I couldn't find how much are maximum marks. Do they not disclose it?
The 'marks' are standardised scores, not 'marks out of x'. The highest raw score (which may be nowhere near 100%, BTW) will usually translate into a standardised score of 140 or 141, or 280 / 282 if the score is based on two papers. Scoring, say, 210 does not
mean that the underlying raw score is 75%. (Well, it might be, but equally it might be 45%. Or 60%. Or 80%).
Similarly,a score of 115 (or 230, see previous), if the distribution of scores is 'normal', would indicate that only about 16% of candidates
did better than that candidate did, not that that candidate scored 84%.
