I just got back on Brilliant after a while and just purchased a year-long subscription to Brilliant^2. Does anyone have any information on the percentile ranks they give you?

Like what population are they comparing us to? The whole community or just within a certain age-range?

Thanks for the answer. That's what I figured it was. I wondered if it was compared to an age group or the whole community. Thanks! It is a great feature to see how you compare against other users.

Also, it's strange that my level 3 rank in algebra and in calculus put me at the 97th percentile. Is there really that few amount of users in level 4 and 5?

TopNewestHi Nick,

Good question! I believe it is your percentile rank on Brilliant among the whole community.

Do you have any opinions on ways to make that rank more fun or useful to you?
