PERCENTILE SCORES

 

Percentile  scores  are  scores  based  on  the  relative  performance of  all  those  who  appear  for  the examination

Basically the marks obtained are transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each group of examinees

The Percentile Score indicates the percentage of candidates that have scored EQUAL TO OR BELOW that particular Percentile in that examination.

The highest score is converted to a Percentile score of 100.

The  marks  obtained  in  between  the  highest  and  lowest  scores  are  also  converted  to  appropriate

Percentiles

The Percentile Scores  would  be converted  to 3 decimal places to avoid  bunching  effect and therefore reduce ties

The following is a further explanation of the interpretation of the scores in an examination with 100 candidates.

  • If  candidate  A’s  Percentile  score  is  100,  it  indicates  that  amongst  those  who  have  taken  the examination, 100% have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS THAN the candidate A. It also indicates that no candidate has scored more that candidate A.
  • If candidate B’s Percentile score is 90, it indicates that 90% of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate B. It also indicates that remaining candidates have scored more than candidate B.
  • If candidate C’s Percentile score is 50, it indicates that 50% of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate C. It also indicates that remaining half of those who took the examination have scored more than candidate C.
  • If candidate D’s Percentile score is 30, it indicates that 30% of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate D. It also indicates that remaining
  • have scored more than candidate D.
  •  If candidate E’s Percentile score is 1, it indicates that none of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate E. It also indicates that all remaining candidates who took the examination have scored more than candidate.
