How to calculate sgpa in engineering:
The following procedure is to be adopted to compute the Semester Grade Point Averagae. (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA):
The SGPA is the ratio of sum of the product of the number of credits with the grade points scored by a student in all the courses taken by a student and the sum of the number of credits of all the courses undergone by a student, i.e SGPA (Si) = Σ (Ci X Gi) / Σ Ci
Where Ci is the number of credits of the ith course and Gi is the grade point scored by the student in the ith course.
The CGPA is also calculated in the same manner taking into account all the courses undergone by a student over all the semester of a programme, i.e. CGPA = Σ (Ci X Si) / Σ Ci
Where Si is the SGPA of the ith semester and Ci is the total number of credits in that semester.
How to calculate percentage from CGPA Conversion of grades into percentage:
Conversion formula for the conversion of GPA into Percentage is [CGPA Earned – 0.75] x 10= Percentage of marks scored. Illustration: [CGPA Earned: 8.18 – 0.75]x 10 = 74.3%
