Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) is calculated by considering all the courses of the semester.
SGPA = ∑(Ci × Gi) / ∑Ci where
Ci = No. of credits,
Gi = grade points.
To arrive at marks scored in a course, multiply grade point Gi by 10.
After completion of all the courses, the minimum number of credits required for B.A. / B.Sc. / B.Com. / B.M.S / B.B.A. CGPA and OWPM shall be given separately for Part I, Part II and Part III.
CGPA = ∑(C×GP) / ∑C where
C = No. of credits,
GP = grade points.
OWPM = ∑(C×M) / ∑C, where M = marks
