How to calculate the CGPA?

For calculating the subject wise indicative percentage of marks, we need to multiply 9.5 with Grade point (GP) of the subject (9.5*GP of the subject).

For example:

If your grade point for five main subjects are:

A Subject 1: 9

B Subject 2: 8

C Subject 3: 8

D Subject 4: 7

E Subject 5: 8

Add these grade points: 9+8+8+7+8=40

  • Divide the total of grade points with 5(40/5=8)
  • So, the CGPA is 8
  •  for the percentage of these subjects, multiple 8 with9.5
  • So, the percentage is 76%

GPA= 4+5+7+4+3/5 = 23/5 = 4.6 GPA
