Abstract: This paper finds the reliability of the averag examination marks, calcula­ted to two decimal places, as a crite­rion for the ranking and classification of students. The marks are in percen­tages,and the paper examines the impor­tance of a difference of one point in the unit, the first or the second deci­ mal place. It is seen from the reliability in marking,even the mathematical courses, that the probability of obtaining a reliable percentage average calculated to one or two decimal places is very low. Thus it is only fair to limit the average marks calculated only up to the units.
