The obtained marks of the candidates are transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for both shifts. The Percentile score will indicate the percentage of candidates that have scored equal to or below that particular Percentile in that examination. Therefore, the topper of each group will get the same percentile of 100 which is desired. The Percentile score is the normalized score for this examination. The Score of both groups is normalized to percentiles. For example/: the highest score of each group would be normalized to the percentile of 100 whereas the lowest score would have a percentile depending on the total number of candidates who have taken the examination.

The percentile for each student will be derived using the following formula. This method is used for all 5 dimensions (Total Percentile, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and General Knowledge).

Total Percentile (TP): 100 x No of candidates from the group with Total                                                             Marks <T To derive an overall merit list, the percentile scores for the total marks of both shifts would be merged and arranged.
