Hi James,

Can't you sort the result? The sort option can be found on the data ribbon.

A formula to determine rank would look like this:
=RANK(A2,\$A\$2:\$A\$127,1)
Where the result are in column A.
A2 refers to the cell with result to determine the rank.
\$A\$2:\$A\$127 refers to the range of cells containg all results. The dollar symbols are there to keep the range fixed, when you drag the formula down.
The 1 at the end reverses the rank order, so that the last 10 students will be ranked 1-10.

If you envision a certain result (maybe placing the 10 names in a certain spot), then it is helpful to show how your data looks now and how you want the result to look like. You can do this by providing screenshots, or uploading your file using a free filesharing site and posting back the download link. Always be careful with sensitive data. Dummy data will suffice.

Best regards,
Trowa
