It is essential to understand the CBSE’s grading system to analyse student’s performance.

Calculating CGPA

Though your CGPA is written on the report card, you can easily calculate it on your own. Here’s how you can do it.

Add your grade points in the main five subjects, and then divide it by 5.

For example, if the grade points for the five main subjects are:

Subject A: 7; Subject B: 8; Subject C: 8 ; Subject D: 9; and Subject E: 9

Step 1: Add the grade points: 7+8+8+9+9 = 41

Step 2: Divide it by 5

41/5 = 8.2

So, your CGPA is 8.2.

It is now important to understand your result in terms of percentage to evaluate your performance. Here is how you can do it.

In order to convert your overall CGPA into percentage, you need to multiply it by 9.5.

For example,

In this case 8.2 (CGPA) is multiplied by 9.5, so 8.5 x 9.5 = 77.9%

It must be stated here though both your Class 9 and Class 10 grades are displayed on your report card, only Class 10 grades are used to calculate your CGPA.
