    16. Example of calculating CGPA:

    The following example may be considered for calculating CGPA. Example-1: Assume that student has secured 1900 out of 2600. Then the CGPA of the student will be % (1900/2600) = 73.07% (or) 7.3 CGPA, which falls under First Division with distinction. Example-2: Assume that student has secured 1700 out of 2600. Then the CGPA of the student will be % (1700/ 2600) = 65.38% (or) 6.5 CGPA, Which falls under First Division. Example-3: Assume that student has secured 1500 out of 2600. Then the CGPA of the student will be % (1500/ 2600) = 57.69% (or) 5.7 CGPA, Which falls under Second Division. Example-4: Assume that student has secured 1200 out of 2600. Then the CGPA of the student will be % (1200/ 2600) = 46.15% (or) 4.6 CGPA, Which falls under Pass Division. Example-5: Assume that student has secured 900 out of 2600.

    Important Note: It is important to be noted while awarding CGPA that rounding option should not be exercised. For instance, a student has secured 1817. Then the percentage of marks will be % (1817/2600) = 69.88% and CGPA will be 6.9, which falls under first class. It should be noted that 69.88 should not be rounded to 70.00% and the CGPA should not be 7.0.
