Calculation of SGPA:

 

SGPA (Si) = ∑Ci ÷ ∑C

 

Where,    

C  = Credit of the respective Paper.    

Gi  = Grade Point scored for the respective Paper.    

 Ci = Credit Point.  ( C x Gi )

∑Ci = Total Credit Point  earned in a semester

∑C = Total Credit in a semester

 

Calculation of CGPA:

CGPA  = ∑Ti ÷ ∑T

Where Ti= ∑Ci =Total Credit Point earned in a semester

             T= ∑C= Total credit in a semester

             ∑Ti = Total Credit Point earned in all semester

             ∑T = Total Credit in all semester

 

Calculation of Overall Percentage (%)

 Percentage (%) = (Total Marks Obtained ÷ Grand Total Marks) X 100
