# About

Year after year, lakhs of candidates appear in the CBSE examination. Examinations are followed up by the results inducing anxiety and stress in minds students. CBSE replaced the trend of awarding marks to CGPA grading system in 2011.

Well this intrigued our analytical minds to calculate CGPA and Percentage of marks on the basis of CGPA. Albeit, CGPA is marked on your certificates, students might feel the need to recheck and ensure there cumulative grades.

One of the most common and reliable method is:

1. For average CGPA:

Sum of all the Grade Points (GP) of each subject must be divided by 5.

For instance, if an examinee scores the GP for- Subject 1 is 8, Subject 2 is 9, Subject 3 is 9, Subject 4 is 9.5 and Subject 5 is 7

Then the sum of GPs will be: 8+9+9+9.5+7= 42.5

Dividing 42.5 by 5, we get 8.5 which is the aggregate CGPA.

2. For overall indicative percentage of marks:

We need to multiply CGPA with 9.5. (9.5*CGPA)

3. To calculate subject wise indicative percentage of marks

We need to multiply 9.5 with GP of the subject. (9.5x GP of the subject)

The overall grades for consecutive standards 9th and 10th are displayed in the separate boxes on the Grade Sheet cum Certificate of Performance. These grades are awarded on the bases of overall performance assessments in the academic year.

Here is a glaring paradox and an interesting inference of this marking scheme adapted by CBSE. Individuals with consistent good performance in all subjects are subjected to score a higher CGPA. While students who score exceptionally high in some subjects and less in others get comparatively lower CGPA. This pays off to be jack of all trades and master of none, being unfair to the students who excel at specific subjects.

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 was 9.5.

What exactly is CGPA?

CGPA stands for Cumulative Grade Points Average. It is the average of Grade Points obtained in 5 subjects excluding additional 6th subject as per Scheme of Studies. CBSE no longer ranks class 10 students on the basis of marks but on the basis of CGPA. It is calculated in a scale of 10, where highest is 10 and lowest is 4. CBSE awards the students' grade points on the basis of marks they obtain in a subject.

Why I cannot select the grade for 7th Subject?
The board allows five main subjects and a 6th one as an additional one for selection in Class 10. Students usually opt no more than 6 subjects so we doubt you would hit this limit.

How to convert Percentage to CGPA?

Just divide your Percentage by 9.5 and result will be your CGPA. For example, to convert 68 percent to CGPA, we divide it by 9.5 and the resulting number 7.2 is the CGPA. To calculate CGPA, add the grade-points of five subjects excluding the additional subject and divide the sum total by 5. The result will be your CGPA. For example, if you got 10 in Maths, 9 in English, 10 in Science, 7 in Social Studies and 8 in Hindi, then your CGPA will be (10+9+10+7+8)/5 = 8.8

To find the percentage of a particular subject, you'll have to multiply grade point of that subject with 9.5. If you don't want to do this manually, just use the CGPA calculator.

How to calculate CGPA from subject grade points?

1. Add Grade Points (GPs) for all the five main subjects.

2. Now divide the number obtained by 5

3. The resultant number is your CGPA.

For example, if your grade points for the 5 main subjects are: Subject 1: 8, Subject 2: 9, Subject 3: 7, Subject 4: 9 and Subject 5: 9

Step 1: Add the grade points: 8+9+7+9+9 = 42

Step 2: Divide it by 5 42/5 = 8.5

So, your CGPA is 8.5.
