Hi Experts
I don't have the least idea on how to rank (desc) the following
sample ExamScores by CourseID , grouping by Level.
Some help needed.

Finally, I got it.

SELECT C.level,C.studentid,C.courseid,C.coursename,C.Examscore,

(select count(*) from mytable C1 where C.courseid = C1.courseid and  C1.level = C.level
and (C1.Examscore > C.Examscore or (C1.Examscore = C.Examscore and C1.level >= C.level ))) as Rnk

FROM mytable C

It gave me what I needed.

Hello gbhs,
SQL Server has introduced new features called Windowing functions like Row_Number, Rank, NTile, etc
Please refer to SQL tutorial titled Exam Scores Grouped by Their Classes Using DENSE_RANK() just on this topic

Please check the following SQL code which uses DENSE_RANK() function for sorting students according their exam scores categorized by more than one column

select 
    *, 
    DENSE_RANK() OVER (Partition By [Level], CourseID Order By ExamScore DESC)
from myTable
