What is CGPA?

CGPA is the measure of the overall academic performance of a student in terms of numbers. It is an average score obtained by a student in the following academic semesters.

 For a particular academic term, it is an average of score obtained for all semesters at the end of the course.

How To Calculate CGPA?

To calculate the subject wise indicative percentage of marks, we need to multiply 9.5 with grade point of the subject (9.5 multiplied by GP of the subject )

Steps for Calculation

If your grade points for five subjects are:

1 Subject - 6

2 Subject - 8 

3 Subject - 9

4 Subject - 7

5 Subject - 6

Add these grade points: 6+8+9+7+6 = 36

Divide the total of grade points by 5 (36/5 = 7.2)

So, the CGPA will be 7.2.

How to convert CGPA into a percentage?

To calculate percentage multiply 7.2 with 9.5 

so the percentage will be 68.5%

Semester Grade Point Average

Semester grade point average is nothing but the measure of the performance of a student in the particular semester indicated by numbers, It is the weighted average of the grade points obtained in all courses or subjects registered by the student 

How To Calculate SGPA?

  • Grade Point (G)
  • Credits (C)
  • Credit Points (C.G)
  • Total Credits 


Sr .No      Subject     Grade    Credit      Credit Points

   1            Subject         6               3                 18

   2            Subject         8               4                 32

   3            Subject         9               4                 36

   5            Subject         6               3                 18

Formula To Calculate SGPA:

SGPA = Total Credit Point /Total credits 

          = 125/17

SGPA =  7.3529 

How To Convert SGPA Into CGPA?

If the SGPA is as following:

1st Sem   -  SGPA  7.3529

2nd Sem  -  SGPA  8.00

Formula To Calculate CGPA:  

CGPA = Total SGPA / Number Of Semester

CGPA = 7.3529 + 8.00 / 2

CGPA = 7.6764

CGPA into percentage :

* 7.0 cgpa in percentage = 66.5%

* 7.2 cgpa in percentage = 68.4%             

* 7.4 cgpa in percentage = 70.3% 

* 8.8 cgpa in percentage = 83.6%

* 9.2 cgpa in percentage = 87.4%

* 9.4 cgpa in percentage = 89.3%
