Frequently Asked Questions FAQs
What is the full form of CGPA?CGPA stands for Cumulative Grade Point Average.
What exactly is CGPA?It is the average of Grade Points obtained in all the subjects excluding additional 6th subject as per Scheme of Studies.
How to calculate percentage from CGPA?Multiply the CGPA with 9.5 or use the above calculator to get the overall indicative percentage.
Why multiply with 9.5 only?The Board took the result of the last five years and calculated the average marks of all candidates who had scored between 91 and 100. That average turned out to be close to 95 marks. Since the equivalent Grade Point for the 91-100 band (A1 grade) of marks is 10, it then divided the average result of 95 by 10. The result is 9.5.
How can I download/save the calculator generated result table?At the moment, this version of calculator doesn't support saving or downloading the grade chart for future use. There's an improved version of this application available at www.varic.com/cgpa/1 with such facility.
- Subject wise indicative percentage of marks = 9.5 x GP of the Subject.
