Criteria for shortlisting: July 2019

 

Converting from CGPA to Equivalent % Marks

The tables below use Equivalent % marks. In case your university/college reports CGPAs apply the following steps

    1. Calculate your equivalent CGPA out of 10

 

    1. Convert to % Marks using the formula: % Marks=[CGPA out of 10 – 6]*10 + 55

 

Example: If your university calculates your CGPA out of 4, and your CGPA is 3 then –

      1. Your CGPA out of 10 is 7.5.

 

      1. Your marks are [7.5-6]*10 + 55 = 70%
