A candidate's percentile will be calculated as 100 X the number of candidates in the 'group' who have aggregate marks less than the candidate divided by the total number of candidates in the 'group'. If a candidate receives 50% on the board and 2218 candidates receive less than 50%, his percentile score will be calculated. A candidate who received 60% on the Board and 6865 candidates who scored lower than him will have his percentile score calculated by multiplying the total number of candidates by 100 and dividing it by the number of candidates who appeared.
