* This denotes the Relative Score in Percentage. The
relative % is your percentage mark obtained with reference to the
maximum score in that section by anybody. 
Percentage  My score in that section. For e.g. The Quant Section had
75 Qs. The student mentioned above has a %age of 9.33. Which means he
would have scored 7 marks in this section.
You can find out your score in each of the sections by simply multiplying
your %score with the number of questions in that section. (75 for Quant,
65 for EU & 35 for GK  175 overall)
Relative %age  This as rightly stated above is your percentage marks
with reference to the maximum score. As is clear from the above, a Total
%age of 4 is 7 marks. This means that 8.68% of the total % marks is 7
or 100% of the total %marks is 80.6 (7 divided by 8.68).
Percentile  My score in relation to the highest score obtained in that
section. For e.g. The student mentioned above has a %ile of 10.1. This
means that between him and the topper, there are 89.9% of the all the
people who have sat for the XAT exam. Therefore, if your percentile is
95, it means that 95% of all students taking the test lie below you and
conversely that you lie in the top 5%
All the Best!!!
