    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.
