CBSE Class X Result 2010 – How to Calculate Percentage

Today, CBSE Board, India declared class X result for year 2010. But here is a catch – this year they changed the rating from numbers to grades. Most of the students are apparently confused how to get percentage from their GPA.

How to convert CGPA to Percentage

Here is the simple method to  convert GPA into percentage:

Percentage = 9.5 × CGPA

Example:

CGPA = 6.8

Percentage = 9.5 x CGPA = 9.5 x 6.8 = 64.60%

The percentage calculated by this manner is the overall percentage.

How to convert GP to Percentage

Here is the simple method to calculate percentage from GP:

Percentage = 9.5 x GP

Example:

GP = 06

Percentage = 9.5 x 6 = 57.6%.

The percentage calculated in this manner is the percentage in that particular subject.

The magic number 9.5:

The number 9.5 in the percentage calculation is not a magic number. This is derived using following formula:

Percentage = (10 x GP) - (GP/2)

Percentage = GP(10 – 1/2)

Percentage = GP(9.5) = 9.5 x GP.

 

Hope this will clear students confusion.
