8.69% or roughly 1,024 examinees made it to the 2011 National Qualifying Examination for School Heads (NQESH) which was simultaneously administered nationwide on October 30, 2011 by the Department of Education (DepEd) through the National Educators Academy of the Philippines (NEAP).
The 1,024 examiness met the Cut-Off Score of 90th percentile. This means, that only the top 10% examinees were taken to pass the said examination.
The 2011 NQESH contained a total of 170 items which were equitably spread across the nine (9) performance dimensions of school heads:
a. School Leadership;
b. Instructional Leadership;

(Wikipedia explains that in statistics, a percentile or centile is the value of a variable below which a certain percent of observations fall. For example, the 20th percentile is the value (or score) below which 20 percent of the observations may be found. The term percentile and the related term percentile rank are often used in the reporting of scores from norm-referenced tests. The 25th percentile is also known as the first quartile (Q1), the 50th percentile as the median or second quartile (Q2), and the 75th percentile as the third quartile (Q3).)
So 90th is nearing the fourth quartile which is 100. One should understand, the process of determining who will be counted into the examination is different from the regular or standardized test we used to give to our pupils where the second or the third quartile (50% or 75%) is regarded as the passing rate.
