Know the difference between percentage and percentile
Candidates must know the difference between percentage and percentile as for admission to NITs, IIITs and GFTIs one of the eligibility criteria is to secure a place in the top 20 percentile of the respective class 12th board. This top 20 percentile is different than the percentage of marks and is calculated separately. Check the process of calculating percentile below.
Difference between percentage and percentile?
Percentage = number obtained / total x 100. Eg 50/360 x100
Percentile = 100 x Number of candidates in the group with aggregate marks less than the candidates/ Total number of candidates in the group
The top 20 percentile of the respective class 12th board is calculated category-wise for the candidates on the basis of their scores in class 12th respective board exam. This percentile is matched with the published top 20 percentile of the board as announced by CBSE.
For instance, the total number of candidates registered in a particular board is 13918 and total number of candidates appeared is 13711, then, the percentile will be calculated as follows,
Percentile of a student who has scored 50% marks in the Board where 2218 candidates have scored below him
Percentile score for 50% marks in the Board will be calculated as 2218 x 100/ 13711 = 16.18
What subjects will be taken into account for calculating percentile?
The following 5 subjects will be taken into consideration for calculating top 20 percentile in class 12th or qualifying exam for JEE Main Paper I:
Any one of (Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Technical Vocational Subject

Important: In case candidates have taken 6 subjects in the qualifying exam, then the better of the fifth or sixth will be take into account.
