## CGPA Calculation for Engineering Students

CGPA is defined as Cumulative Grade Points Average. GPA is the measure of average grade points of each semester. Its a average grade point obtained in all the semesters.

Formula
for CGPA Calculation
CGPA = Î£ ( Total Grades ) / Total Credits

Step 1: Assume a set of grade points to map with the subjects.

 Grade Grade Points A+ 4.7 A 4 B+ 3.7 B 3 C+ 2.7 C 2 D+ 1.7 D 1

Step 2: Lets assume the Grade and Credits for the subjects till the fourth semester.

 Semester Subject Credits Grades 1 Mechanics 3 B+ 2 Applied Physics 4 A 3 Aerodynamics 2 B 4 C Programming 1 D+

Step 3:
To find the total grade points lets map the grade points of each subject in the given formula.
Total grades in Mechanics = 3 x 3.7 = 11.1
Total grades in Applied Physics = 4 x 4 = 16
Total grades in Aerodynamics = 2 x 3 = 6
Total grades in C programming = 1 x 1 = 1

Step 4: Find the total credit by adding the credits of all the subjects.
Total credits = 3 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 10
Total credits = 10

Total grades = 11.1 + 16 + 6 + 1 = 34.1
