A question regarding competitive exams

consider this !! i mean this is the case in India and is the pattern followed almost globally...the JOINT ENTRANCE EXAM(JEE) is a competitive exam for entry into various engineering colleges of the country..the current average absorption in engineering is 15000(approx for west Bengal) i.e they rank the candidates from 1st to 15000th according to merit of course !!( at least that's what they say) now the total marks of the said exam is 300 for engineering (physics-100,chemistry-100,maths-100)the question that baffles me is that how do they rank 15000 candidates based on a total marks of 300 only and where the marks dedicated for each question is a whole number....it is really a mathematical mystery to me...i would really like to know the mathematical explanation of this peculiar phenomenon....
i mean this would require the mark allotment to a response in decimals that too in the third or the forth significant figures ....for example a candidate would have to be accredited ..maybe 2.005 for a certain answer...but that seems ridiculous to me...so how do they do what they do?
eagerly expecting your comments on this
