Cumulative Grade Point Average is a educational grading system.
It is used in schools and colleges to measure overall academic performance of a student. Students are allotted with grades (A,B,C,D, or F). It is an average of grade points obtained for all semester after the course completion up to a given academic term.
GPA ( Grade Point Average): It is also a grading average but, it is used to specify only for one term.
Different countries have their own grading standards. India’s grading system is based on percentage.
|90% to 100%||O or A+||Outstanding|
|70% to 89%||A||First class|
|50% to 69%||B+||Second class|
|40% to 49%||B||Pass class|
Note: The CGPA is specified in the form of decimal number or digit. For example: 9.4 CGPA.
How to calculate percentage from the given CGPA
The percentage of marks can be calculated as follows:
- Subject wise percentage of marks = 9.5 * GP of the subject
- Overall percentage of marks = 9.5 * CGPA
Example: If a student have got total 9.6 CGPA, it means his/her total percentage of marks:
9.5*9.6 = 91.2%.
