CBSE(Central Board Of Secondary Education) has announced many guidelines for converting your CGPA score to percentage.

The formula is simple you just have to multiply your CGPA score by 9.5. The result of your calculation after the multiplication of CGPA with 9.5 is your required percentage.

Illustrate with a simple example, Imagine you have obtained 8.0 GGPA in your academics, now just multiply it with 9.5 the resultant is your percentage which is 76.0 in this case.

Now you all have a question in your mind that Why multiply with 9.5?

The answer is here:

The Central Board of Secondary Education gathered previous results of their students from the last five years and inspect the average marks obtained by the students scoring between 91 to 100 marks.

The average marks obtained after so many inspections of the previous year’s results are 95.

As you know the grade points associated with this range of marks is 10, they divide the average marks by grade points of the range, i.e. 95/10 and the result come out is 9.5, you all know this simple calculation.

But If your university followed the CGPA grading system and you didn’t have a percentage, then you have to convert your CGPA to the percentage by following the university’s guidelines and fill it in your form.

If your university has not specified any guidelines for that conversion, you have to follow the guidelines specified by UPSC. According to their guidelines, you have to multiply your CGPA with 10, unlike CBSE.

For illustration, imagine you have got 8.5 CGPA, now to convert your CGPA to percentage multiply by 10, i.e. 8.5 * 10 the result is 85 which is your desired percentage.
