Gujarat board grading pattern:

GSEB has updated its ranking system. Before 2011 every student’s rank studying under Gujarat board was based on percentage. Now it is changed to percentile. How to calculate percentile rank? Firstly you need to subtract percentile from the 100. The second step is to multiply the answer got in step 1 with the total number of candidates who appeared in your batch. The last step is to divide the answer got in step 2 by 100. In this way, you get your rank.
