For students aiming to pursue higher education abroad, understanding the conversion between different grading systems is crucial. In this blog post, we will explore the process of converting a 10-point Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) to a 4-point Grade Point Average (GPA), specifically tailored for Indian students seeking admission in universities abroad. We will delve into the significance of GPA and CGPA, the conversion process, and provide a handy reference table for quick estimation.
What is GPA and CGPA?
GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a numerical representation of a student’s academic performance in a single semester or term. It is calculated by averaging the grades obtained in all the courses taken during that term. On the other hand, CGPA, or Cumulative Grade Point Average, provides an overall assessment of a student’s performance throughout their entire academic journey, considering grades from all semesters.
Converting 10-Point CGPA to 4-Point GPA
The conversion process from a 10-point CGPA to a 4-point GPA involves scaling down the CGPA to fit the different grading system. While universities generally handle this conversion, students can estimate their GPA for reference using a simple formula:
GPA = (CGPA / Maximum CGPA) * 4
For instance, if your CGPA is 7.0 out of a maximum 10.0 CGPA, the conversion would be:
(7.0 / 10.0) * 4 = 2.8
