What is CGPA in CBSE system of evaluation ?

How CGPA is calculated ?

How to calculate percentage % with CGPA?

Cumulative Grade Point Average(CGPA) is the average of Grade Points obtained in all the subjects excluding 6th additional subject as per Scheme of Studies.

Cumulative Grade Point Average(CGPA) would also be reflected in the  Grade card so there is no need to calculate it. However, you can use the following formula to calculate overall CGPA :

CGPA = sum of Grade points (main 5 subjects) divided by 5

for example: 9+9+10+10+9/5 =47/5=9.4 (CGPA)

To calculate percentage from CGPA, simply multiply it with 9.5 such as

CGPA=9.4, overall percentage is : 9.4 x 9.5 = 89.3 % Marks.
