How to calculate CGPA ?

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is about to announce the Class 10 board results. The results will be in the form of Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA). It is important to be familiar with the board's grading system and its meaning to analyse your performance.

Calculating CGPA

Though your CGPA is written on the report card but you should know how to do it . Add your grade points in the main five subjects, and then divide it by 5.

For example, if your grade points for the five main subjects are:

Subject 1:  9
Subject 2:  8
Subject 3:  8
Subject 4:  7
Subject 5:  8

Step 1: Add the grade points: 9+8+8+7+8= 40

Step 2: Divide it by 5

40/5 = 8

So, your CGPA is 8

Calculating percentage from your CGPA

In order to convert your overall CGPA into percentage, multiply it by 9.5.

In this case 8 (CGPA) is multiplied by 9.5, so 8 x 9.5 = 76 %

only Class 10 grades are used to calculate your CGPA.

Best of luck.
