What are rank and position?

Ranks and positions are created when all exam results are in.  A rank is a group of same scores for an exam.  Candidates that received the same score are in the same rank.  The group of candidates with the highest score are in Rank 1.  The next highest group of scores are in Rank 2, and so on.  Position is a tie breaker within a rank of scores.  If 5 candidates receive a 100 on an exam they would be positions 1 through 5.  Their placing in the position is randomly determined by the computer.
