  • In application for neet ug , i had applied DELHI , TAMIL NADU AND KARNATAKA for the state choice 1, 2 and 3. But i came to know that i am not eligible for these states. Is correction possible for the state eligiblity choice ? since i am from kerala will i be given seats in kerala state quota since i have not written it in the state choice.

    First of all, it is a wonder why you didn't include Kerala if you are a Kerala origin. While filling the application form you should have been more careful. In your case only All India quota will be considered. Otherwise, contact the cbse directly and take up the matter.

  • What is the difference between percentage and percentile? 

    Difference between percentage and percentile is one that of your score compared with others who wrote the exam. Percentile ranks are commonly used to clarify the interpretation of scores on standardized tests. For the test theory, the percentile rank of a raw score is interpreted as the percentages of examinees in the norm group who scored below the score of interest.

    Suppose 100 people take a test of 50 items. If one of them got 40 of the items correct, then the percentage that he got correct is 80. He got 80 percent of the items correct. But we don't know what percentile he is in until we see what scores the other 99 people got.

    Suppose that all 99 of those other people got only 60% (or fewer) of the items correct. Then the person who got 80% did better than all other 99 people. He did better than 99% of the whole group of 100, so he is in the 99th percentile.
