The OG says that between January 2005 and December 2007, 650,395 people took the exam. So how many people are used in determining what percentile a candidate scores in? 100k? 200k? All the applicants the last two years? All the applicants that particular month you take it? If they did just compare you to say "everyone who took the exam in june" then depending on the strength of the june applicants that could have a large impact on your overall score.

The percentiles are compounded annually or every few years.
There is a general score inflation that's been happening for the past 10-15 years. The best example is 750 - it is 98th percentile but used to be 99th a few years back.
