My daughter is December born, does that mean that she will not be awarded her full results if a child younger than her scores lower and is topped up?

Later born children get a few points added to their scores, rather than deducting points from an older child.

I think it's not really that the younger ones get points added, simply that children are only compared with other children of the same age (by month). Therefore if there was a particularly bright cohort of young children taking a test, their raw score to standardised score conversion would be the same. In practice the younger children tend to score lower - which is exactly why standardisation is used. Search on the forum for "age standardisation" and you will find links to nfer which explain it better than I can. If I can find them I'll edit my post later.

I notice that your thread is in the independent section of the forum - indies may well standardise slightly differently - worth having a chat with the specific if you have any questions.
