keeping a track of your grades and points has become so vital these days as everyone wants to know where they stand academically...
CGPA
or
GPA
strikes first in everybody's mind when it comes to academic performance..
one must know that
CGPA
and
GPA
are slightly different from one another..
CGPA
is used to calculate the overall academic performance of a student for entire academic degree.
while
GPA

usually grades are associated with numbers and denoted with letters such as..
grade A
= 4
grade B
= 3
grade C
= 2
and this process goes on....
now let's jump on to the calculations. we will start with calculating
GPA
first....
let us assume a student took 3 courses (
maths
,
english
and
statistics)
with each course of 5 credits.
The student obtained following grades:
MATHS
= B
ENGLISH
= A
STATISTICS
= C
STEP 1
:
multiply the grades with their respective subjects
:
MATHS
= B:
(3*5) = 15
ENGLISH
= A :
(4*5) = 20
STATISTICS
= C
(2*5) = 10
STEP 2 :
add up all the grades and divide them with the total number of credits:
15
+
20
+
10
=45
45 / 15= 3
so GPA IS 3...
CGPA
is calculated by taking the mean of
GPA
and dividing it by total number of credits.
often institutes have their own
CGPA
table and different criteria as well.
