The quartiles are based on the calculated percentiles and calculated to the hundredth of a score point:
Percentile = (100*application rank/number of applications discussed for the PFA)
Quartile 1 (1-24%); Quartile 2 (25-49%); Quartile 3 (50-74%); Quartile 4 (75-100%)
Quartile 1 includes the better scoring applications (lower numeric score), and Quartile 4 includes the applications that received higher numeric scores.
Quartiles are provided to inform an applicant’s relative position to other applications in the PFA. Please note that not all PFAs include Quartile Scoring.
