Would anyone know whether it is sufficient to fall within top 5 per cent or would a person's rank within the 5 per cent also be important.

For instance if two people from the same university are applying, while both fall within the top 5 per cent of their batch, but one has scored more than the other. Would that mean the one with the lower score between the two wouldn't stand a chance?

Ranking is also important. You should try and identify your rank and include it into your application.

UCL, for example, does not rank its students. Referees give their best guess on the basis of the marks you get. (It may be different for those who have finished their Final Year before applying.) In any case, whatever your rank, they will always look at your marks and compare them. But marks are hardly everything so don't put too much weight on them.
