    Usage of 'rank'

    1) I got a rank of 2,300 in Common Entrance Test.
    2) I got 2,300 rank in Common Entrance Test.
    3) I got 2,300th rank in Common Entrance Test.


    Can someone please tell me which of the above three sentences sound(s) natural? Please suggest better ways of putting it, if any.

    No. 1 is acceptable (with 'the' before Common), but better would be:
    My rank was 2,300 in the Common Entrance Test.

    2 & 3 are not right.
