The Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE, today, declared the Class 12th Result for the CBSE Board Exam 2023. This year, the overall pass percentage for CBSE Class 12 is 87.33%. Now, around 21 lakh students who appeared for the CBSE Class 10 Board Exam 2023 are awaiting the results. The board may release the CBSE Class 10 Results 2023 in a day or two. Students, in order to check their results, need to be ready with their roll numbers.
The CBSE Class 10 Result 2023 will be announced in CGPA format. Do you know what is CGPA and how to convert CGPA into percentage. We have discussed below CGPA in detail and have mentioned a very simple formula that will help you convert your CGPA obtained in CBSE Results 2023 into percentage.
CBSE released the class 12th result last year with a grading system. The result of the examination was based on the nine-point scale grading system. It becomes a bit difficult for the students to calculate the exam result in the grading system. That's why we have come up with an easy way to calculate the result:
CBSE Result 2023 : What is the Grading System?
In the grading system, the results of the students are released in the form of grades (A-1, A-2, B1, B2) instead of percentages. Due to this, it becomes a bit difficult for the students to convert their marks into percentages. Let us know this in an easy way.
If 1000 students appeared in the exam this year and out of these, 800 passed. First of all, there will be an A+ grade on the basis of merit. Based on the 1/8 formula, the first 100 students out of 800 will get an A-1 grade. Now for the remaining 700 students, again, the 1/8th formula will be applicable and will give an A-2 grade to about 88 students.
Out of the remaining 612 students, 76 will get a B-1 grade. Similarly, the formula of 1/8 will be applied to the remaining children. This means 67 students will get a B-2 grade. Similarly, further grading will be done for C-1, C-2, D, and E. Separate points will be given for each grade.
What is CGPA?
CGPA stands for Cumulative Grade Points Average. It is the average of Grade Points obtained in all the subjects by a student, excluding the sixth additional subject. The grading system employed in CBSE Board Exam Results to measure the scholastic achievements of students is as follows:
|Marks Range||Grades||Grade Point|
|20 & below||E2||____|
As per the CBSE grading system, minimum qualifying grade for passing the board exam is D. Thus, students scoring grades E1 or E2 will have to sit for re-examination to pass in the failed subjects.
Calculating CGPA from Grade Points (GPs)
You can easily find out your CGPA from the subject grade points (GPs) obtained in the CBSE results. Add the GPs scored in 5 subjects excluding the additional subjects. Then, divide the sum total by 5 to give you the CGPA.
Let GPs scored by you in 5 subjects be:
Maths - 9
Science - 8
Social Science - 7.5
English - 9
Hindi - 7
Sum of the Grade Points (GPs) = 9+8+7.5+9+7 = 40.5
Thus, CGPA = 40.5 / 5 = 8.1
Formula to Calculate Percentage from CGPA
To find out percentage from CGPA, you simply have to multiply the CGPA with 9.5.
Why 9.5 is used in CGPA to Percentage formula?
This 9.5 is an average score obtained by CBSE toppers in previous years. Actually, the Board analysed the previous five years’ results and calculated the average marks of all applicants who scored between 91 and 100. That average came out to be nearly 95 points. As the corresponding Grade Point for the marks range 91-100 (A1 grade) is 10, 95 was divided by 10. Then the final average score was 9.5.
Thus, the three step procedure to find out percentage percentage from CGPA is as follows:
