Percentiles with value of (xip+1-xip)=0

In this picture if the values of 56,59 and 60 are replaced with 55, creating a hypothetical example.
Say the university demands people with percentile >=70, now in this case value of Yp will be 55 since (xip+1-xip) will be zero so will the students lying in the first 17 elements who scored 55 will be allowed to sit in the interview?

It depends on the organization’s choice, most of the times there are other parameters which universities consider. For example, considering the candidates who attempted maximum questions, or candidate who took less time to complete the test etc.
The case for considering all students with 55 marks in >=70 %tile can also be there.
