Whatever the exam is, if standardisation of scores is to be employed then you can't know what raw score will be necessary to achieve a pass.

If the criterion for passing is being in the top however many, then the standardised score which will be the cut-off will depend on the number of candidates (similarly, if a certain standardised score is set as the pass mark, the number passing will be variable).

If age standardisation is used, then your child will be compared with all the others of the same age; all the above will apply to each age band, with the effect that a given standardised score will be 'equal' across all age groups, even though the underlying raw scores may differ (received wisdom is that the younger the sub-cohort, the lower the raw scores will be on average).
