It is a statistical process which adjusts scores on test forms. It basically, makes in approximately equivalent. Due to it, the scores on forms are interchangeable. So, the VIT University uses the Equipercentile Equating method to find the rank, in such a manner that the scores on different forms, but with the same percentile rank, are equivalent.
For example: A percentile rank of 90 means that 90% of test takers are below that candidate. Also, only 10% of the test takes have performed better.
