  1. First, You must know your credit points which you have secured in each subject.
  2. Once you know the credit points for each subject, multiply the credit points allotted to each subject with the grades allotted in respective subjects. Now add all the numbers you got.
  3. Divide the sum by the sum of all credits to get your SGPA.

SGPA= points secured in the semester ÷ sum of your credit score

let’s say 9 is equivalent to A, and the credits you’ve got is 4 on 4.0 scale.

8 is equivalent to B+, and the credits you’ve got is 4 on 4.0 scale.

7 is equivalent to B, and the credits you’ve got is 2 on 4.0 scale.

8+9+7+9 = 27, this is the sum of your grade score

4+4+2+4 = 14, this is the sum of your credit score

(8×4)+(9×4)+(7×2)+(9×4) = 118, these are the points secured in the semester.

Now divide this with the sum of your credit score.

118 ÷ 14 = 8.4, this is your SGPA

There are many SGPA calculators available on the internet which are helpful for all the users. You can adjust the grading system from the settings accordingly.

How to Convert SGPA to Percentage?

Follow the given method to convert SGPA to Percentage:

  • Subtract your SGPA with 0.75 and then the total with 10.
  • percentage = (SGPA – 0.75) x 10
  • Let us take the above example to get the percentage.

SGPA = 8.4

Percentage = ( 8.4 – 0.75 ) x 10 = 7.65 x 10

                  = 76.5%

What is CGPA?

CGPA stands for Cumulative Grade Points Average. This grading scheme is generally used in colleges and schools. To measure the results of a student in an academic year.

SGPA to CGPA to Percentage

If you wish to pursue further studies abroad the score needs to be in percentile. After the institutes’ issue the scores in the CGPA system, you still need to convert that CGPA to Percentage.

For this reason, we have set forth the method to convert your CGPA into percentile:

  1. First, you need the SGPA of all the semesters.
  2. Now add the SGPA of all the semesters.
  3. Divide the sum of all the SGPA’s by the number of semesters in that particular academic term.
  4. The number you get will be your CGPA

For example, SGPA for four semesters, I – 8.4, II – 7.2, III – 6.9, IV – 7.8

  1. 8.4 + 7.2 + 6.9 + 7.8 = 30.3, this is the sum of all the SGPA’s

number of semesters in an academic term = 4

CGPA = sum of all SGPA’s ÷ number of semesters

          30.3 ÷ 4 = 7.5 (this is your CGPA)

To convert the CGPA into percentile, all you need to do is simply multiply the CGPA with 9.5

percentage = CGPA x 9.5

                  = 7.5 x 9.5 = 71.2 %

There are many CGPA calculators available on the internet which come in handy for all the users. You can adjust the grading system from the settings accordingly.
