The cumulative distribution of the total score displayed below indicates at which position the score achieved by an examinee stands in the total rankings.
Taking the example of an examinee whose total score is 240 from the two fields of the test of Japanese as a Foreign Language, “240” on the horizontal axis corresponds to “70%” on the vertical axis (ranking). This means that the number of examinees who are below this examinee occupies 70 % of the total examinees. Therefore, the percentile rank of this examinee is “70”.
The percentile ranking allows you to relatively compare your score, i.e. showing the position of the examinee in the entire group who took the examination.
