For the example of student scores given in the lesson, when computing the percentile rank for the highest score (68) using the formula, I am getting PR as 98. Shouldn’t the highest percentile rank be 100?

PR68 = ((24 + 0.5*1)/25)*100 = 98

@meenuanitta

From the formula that we use, we will never get PR as 100 because, for the number of values that are equal to the highest score, we only take 0.5 of that. If we had taken all the values equal to the highest score, then we would have got PR 100, but that is not the current formula.
