# what's this band method thing?

can someone pls explain? TIA!

I think this sums it up: We have divided the full group of failed candidates into ten approximately equal score bands. Your score band below shows how your overall score on the exam compares with all other failed candidates. For example, if your reported score band is 1, you scored in approximately the bottom 10% of failed candidates. If your reported score band is 2, your score was within the next band width ranging from approximately the bottom 11% to 20% of failed candidates. If your score band is reported as 10, you scored in the top 10% of all failed candidates.

It a way to show the failures just how bad they failed to other failures. Congratulations you are in Band 10…you are the top 10% of failures, you were so close, but not close enough. Or Congrats you were Band 4, you are a moron even among the failures.

oh, just curious. how are the bands calculated?
