What is the 82 percent percentile in a class rank? Is it Top 20 percent or Bottom 20 percent?

Percentile rank means the number of scores that are equal or below you.
A percentile rank of 82 means 82% of the people in class score the same as you or less. And 18% scored above you.
Which means it's within the top 20%
If the class is graded "on the curve," that comes out to about a B or B-minus.

It's the top. But 82% is basically a B average

It means 82% of the others rank below you. Don't let it go to your head. You're in the 82nd percentile.
