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)
