# CGPA Calculator

* = Required Subjects

Our online CGPA Calculator lets you calculate your CGPA and overall percentage. This tool is completely free and easy to use. We have made this for CBSE students but this can probably be used for other boards and colleges too.

### How to Use The Calculator

To use the CGPA calculator, you just have to select your grade for the particular subject from the dropdown menu and click on "Calculate" button. If everything goes right then you'll see the result with your Grade points and percentage for each subject and the calculated CGPA and overall percentage at the bottom. You must provide grades for at least 5 subjects to calculate CGPA or you'll get an error.

After you provide the grades, our tool automatically chooses the top five grades from your input and displays the result.

### What is CGPA

CGPA stands for Cumulative Grade Points Average. It is the average of grades in best 5 subjects. CBSE no longer ranks class 10 students on the basis of marks but on the basis of CGPA. It is calculated in a scale of 10, where highest is 10 and lowest is 4.

CBSE swards the students grade points on the basis of marks they obtain in a subject. Here's the grade chart of CBSE:

91-100 A1 10
81-90 A2 9
71-80 B1 8
61-70 B2 7
51-60 C1 6
41-50 C2 5
33-40 D 4
21-32 E1 -
00-20 E2 -

### How to Calculate CGPA

To calculate CGPA, add the grade points of five subjects excluding the additional subject and divide the sum total by 5. The result will be your CGPA. For example, suppose you got 10 in Maths, 9 in English, 10 in Science, 7 in Social Studies and 8 in Hindi, then your CGPA will be (10+9+10+7+8)/5 = 8.8!

• To convert CGPA to percentage, just multiply the CGPA with 9.5 and the result will be your overall percentage.
• To find percentage of a particular subject, you'll have to multiply grade point of that subject with 9.5. If you don't want to do this manually, just use the CGPA calculator.

#### Why Multiply with 9.5?

After analysing the result of last five years and finding the average marks of all candidates who scored between 91-100, the average turned out to be close to 95 marks. 95 was then divided by 10 because 10 is the equivalent grade point for marks between 91 and 100, and the result was 9.5
