Why are some subjects scaled higher?
Do you want to know why some subjects in the HSC are scaled higher than others?
Technically, how difficult a subject is has no effect on how well it scales. How well a subject is scaled depends on how well its candidature does relative to your whole cohort, if your whole cohort did that subject. This is the reason why English is compulsory, because it is used as a cohort benchmark, from which all relative candidature performances are statistically compared.
In a nutshell, the better the candidature for a particular subject does in their other subjects, the better that subject will be scaled.
