For a complete definition of Percentile see the related link. A percentile is the value of a variable below which a certain percent of observations fall

The 90th percentile is typically the point at which 10 percent of the highest scores fall.

If you assume that scores are out of 40, and that they are evenly distributed (an unlikely event in real life), then the 90th percentile is all scores above 36.

90th percentile is simple another way of saying that 9% scored above and 90% scored below (the other 1% being the number 90). For example, if you take a type of standardized test in high school, if you do well, you are at the 90th percentile, meaning 90% of students scored lower than you and 9% scored better. You can not be in the 100% percentile, because you cannot score better than yourself.
