Mark Inflation

I've heard that some schools are easier to get higher marks than others. Why is that the case? How would they let that happen? Would my school fall in that category? For the grade 12s in my school, roughly 40 out of 400 students got a 90+ average in grade 11. It'll probably stay close to those numbers for grade 12 as well. I was wondering if that is where it should be compared to other schools?

It's not. The curriculum is all standardized by the government. Obviously the teacher you have matters but the variation isn't noticeable, statistically speaking.
