No one screwed you over. You had relatively poor marks, and I am assuming they were in poorly scaling subjects.
Simple as that.

(PS. Before you start complaining about scaling, the reason your subjects were scaled poorly is because they are easy)
Actually, it's because the cohorts for those subjects are relatively weaker than the cohorts for other subjects.

+1.

As I think I've mentioned previously, there is a common misconception that scaling is indicative of the relative difficulty of one subject compared to another.

As annabackwards has now also pointed out, it is a measure of the overall strength of the state-wide cohorts completing a particular course.

No course is 'easy' - each has its own demands and requires the application of different skills. Some people will excel in some subjects and others will excel in other subjects - it's all about what people's individual strengths and weaknesses are and how these match to the skills/knowledge required for each course.
