ABOUT PERCENTILE CALCULATION OF MARKS OF CLASS 12th /QUALIFYING EXAMINATION
1. The percentage of marks and percentile are totally different entities hence the candidates should not confuse with both the above terms.
2. A percentage is a number out of 100.
3. Percentile Score of a candidate in a Board will reflect how many Candidates have scored below that candidate in his/her Board Examination.
4. A Percentile score is a value below which a certain percent of observations fall. For example, the 40th Percentile is the value or score below which 40 Percent of the observations may be found. 
5. The Percentile of a Candidate will be calculated as-

100 X Number of candidates in the ‘group’ with aggregate marks less than the candidate/ Total number of the candidates in the ’group’

6. For calculation of the total marks for five subjects, if the marks awarded in a subject is NOT out of 100, then the marks will be scaled (up or down) to 100 so that the total aggregate marks is out of 500.
7. For candidates who appeared in the Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination in 2016 but reappeared in 2017, the best of the two performances will be considered.
8. If a Board awards only letter grades without providing an equivalent percentage of marks on the grade sheet, the candidate should obtain a certificate from the Board specifying the equivalent marks and submit it at the time of acceptance of the allocated seat. In case such a certificate is not
provided, the decision taken by the CSAB/JoSAA will be final.
9. If a Board gives aggregate marks considering both Class XI and Class XII examinations (in the 10+2 system), then only Class XII marks will be considered. Similarly, for Boards which follow a semester system, the marks scored in the final two semesters will be considered.
10. If a Board does not give marks scored in individual subjects but gives only the aggregate marks, then the aggregate marks given by the Board will be considered as such.
11. The category-wise cut-off marks for the top 20 percentile are calculated based on the marks scored by all the “successful” candidates in their respective boards in the particular year.
12. The cut-off marks for PwD candidates will be the same as the lowest of the cut-off marks for GEN, OBC-NCL, SC and ST categories.
13. It is reiterated that top 20 percentile cut-off for the academic year 2017 will be considered for the candidates who pass the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2017.
