What do the percentages on essay reviews indicate? How does that work?

I imputed a UC essay twice to ensure a good review and first was told that the first reviewer put it in the top 8% while the second put it in the bottom 25%. What do these percentages mean? How should I view them? Are they comparative to other essays or are they representative of something else?
