• Quartiles & Rank

    Often, colleges will ask you what quartile you are in, or you may need it to see if you qualify for automatic admission into that university. See the information below for a quick and easy way to understand and calculate what quarter you fall in.

    Quartiles are 25% segments (Think quarters)

    25% - 1st quartile

    50% - 2nd quartile

    75% - 3rd quartile

    100% - 4th quartile

    When you are given your class rank, divide it by the total number of students in the class.
    For example, If a student is number 322 out of 552, they divide 322/552 = .58 or 58% (3rd quartile)
