Mostly, students are confused between XAT score and percentile.

XAT percentile denotes the percentage of students who have scored less than you have scored in the exam. Imagine there are 100 students in the class, and a student scored the highest mark in the XAT exam than any other student. It means that the score of that particular student is better than 99 students. Therefore, the percentile scored by a student is 99. XAT score denotes the total marks obtained by you in the entrance exam.
