Your percentile score = { (No, of people who got less than you/ equal to you) / (no. of people appearing in the exam) } x 100

Thus, if in an exam, 10 people give the test and 9 people get either less than what you got or equal to what you got, your percentile score is:

{9/10} x 100 = 90 percentile.

L=number of candidates whose mark is below yours

PERCENTILE=(L/P)*100

That means if you are highest in range,and there are 200,000 candidates and if your marks are same as the 7 others then:

your percentile=(199992/200000)*100=99.996

that means in any circumstances you can't have a perfect 100 percentile
