## Calculation of SGPA to CGPA

SGPA stands for Sessional Grade Point Average or Semester End Grade Point Average. This is the grade point average he gets at the end of an academic session, such as his year in school or a semester in college. CGPA stands for Cumulative Grade Point Average. Shows the total score achieved over an entire academic session or over a specific period of time. B. Her 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year of study. Calculate her CGPA achieved for that academic session by summing the overall grades achieved in all college grades or semi-annual exams at school. This is an academic session containing many of his SGPAs for different semesters or semester

According to the definition we discussed for SGPA and CGPA, CGPA can be referred to as the collective SGPAs calculated at the end of the academic year. To calculate your CGPA, one needs to first find the average marks of all subjects in each semester i.e., SGPA.

Afterward, add up all the SGPAs of all the semesters or sessions to find your CGPA for the academic year. For example:
If a student secures 9 and 8 SGPA in their two semesters, their CGPA would be
CGPA of 1 college academic term = (SGPA of semester 1 + SGPA of semester 2)/2
= (9+8)/2 = 17/2
=8.5

## Calculation of SGPA to Percentage

Now that you know how to calculate CGPA from SGPA, let us understand and know how to calculate percentages from SGPA through the same formulas.

SGPA to Percentage Calculator For example:
SGPA of a student for 4 semester = 7.8, 6.7, 7.4, 8.9
=7.8+6.7+7.4+8.9= 30.8
=30.8/4 =7.7
(7.7 x 10) - 7.5 = 77-7.7= 69.3%

## Calculation of Percentage from CGPA from SGPA

Now that you know how to find out SGPA, let’s now understand how to calculate CGPA from SGPA. There are various examples of when institutions release students’ scores in form of CGPA. However, when we talk about universities abroad, those scores are converted into a percentage. This is the reason why we have discussed the method to find out the percentage from CGPA.

The formula is very simple. We first convert SGPA to CGPA, pick the total CGPA and multiply it by 9.5 to find out the percentage.

Look at the following table for a sounder understanding- ## What is SGPA?

SGPA is the abbreviation of sessional Grade Point Average or Semester End Grade Point Average. Before discussing SGPA and CGPA, let’s first know and understand what they are.

To start, the marks we secure in our schools and colleges can find out in numerous ways. One of these methods includes SGPA. It is the grade point average that is find out at the end of an academic session, like a year at school or a semester at college. First, add the grade points of all the subjects in an academic session or year that are gathered together, and their average is calculated. This average is referred to as the SGPA for that specific session or year.

## What is CGPA?

Another well-known method of marks calculation for students' scores in their schools and colleges is through CGPA. CGPA is the abbreviation used for Cumulative Grade Point Average. It reflects the total marks we score in an entire academic session or a specific time period, such as the first year, second year, or third year in college.

The total marks we score in all the years of college or half-yearly exams in school are considered together to calculate the CGPA scored in that academic session.
The fundamental difference between Sessional Point Average and Cumulative Grade Point Average is that we calculate CGPA at the academic session using many SGPAs of different semesters or terms. Students should keep in mind that knowing about CGPA will assist them in understanding how to calculate SGPA.

## Calculation of SGPA

Now that you know about SGPA, here is how to calculate its value. A semester of Sessional Grade Point Average (SGPA) fundamentally depicts a student’s performance over a predetermined time phase, usually a semester. To find the value of SGPA, you will have to consider the credit points scored in a semester and then divide for sum by the total credit points of the semester.

Here is the explanation of how to calculate SGPA
• Firstly, multiply the credit Point of each subject by the grade point you have scored in the subject.
• Finally, divide the sum by the total sum of the credit points for the semester. You will find the value of the SGPA you have scored.
Example:
Subject A: 9; Subject B: 7; Subject C: 6
Now, assume the credit points for these subjects are:
Subject A: 4; Subject B: 5; Subject C: 6

Subject A: 9 x 4= 36
Subject B: 7 x 5= 35
Subject C: 6 x 6= 36

Now, add up the grade points: 36+35+36 = 107 and credit points: 4+5+6= 15
To calculate your SGPA, divide the total sum of grade points by the total of credit points: 107/14
=7.13
Hopefully, we have helped you understand and learn about SGPA, CGPA, Percentage, and  the way to find their values and conversion.
