Hi,

Remember that your rank calculatiuon rely heavily on the marks you scored in Board /12th exams. This is the only reason for the difference. When you come a little down in the rank list, even one mark can make a huge difference.
According to the dtat that you provided the 3 marks lag that he got and the 14 marks advantage that he has in boards has a weightage of 60 and 40 % respectively.
This is the inly difference.
