Ranking duplicates the same rank without breaking sequence in Excel

Suppose you have data for students' names with their mathematics scores. Some students got same percentage so they would get the same rank. Your task is to rank them on the basis of their scores without breaking sequence.

In the example shown below, highlighted ones are the students with their same scores.


For descending rank :

In cell D3, type the following formula

=SUMPRODUCT(($C$3:$C$10>$C3)/COUNTIF($C$3:$C$10,$C$3:$C$10))+1

For ascending rank :

In cell E3, type the following formula

=SUMPRODUCT(($C$3:$C$10<$C3)/COUNTIF($C$3:$C$10,$C$3:$C$10))+1
