Calculation of UP Board Grade Point Average using Percentage

To calculate Grade Points, the following formula is to be used:

CGPA Formula = Total of grade points obtained in subjects / Total number of subjects.

*The detailed explanation of the method to calculate the Grade Points of a subject, using the marks, has already been provided in the table given above.

  • After calculating the grade point of each subject, add all the grade points.
  • Divide the sum of the grade points by the total number of subjects and the final value thus obtained will be the UP Board Grade Point Average (GPA).

For eg, suppose a UP Board Class 10 student secures 8 Grade points in English, 8 in Hindi, 9 in Mathematics, 6 in Science, and 9 in Social science. So, as per the data, the sum of the grade points i.e. 8+8+9+6+9 = 40. Now, if we divide this sum by the total number of subjects, we get 8 as the GPA i.e. 40/5 = 8.

So, the Overall GPA is 8 and the grade is B1.

Conversion of GPA to percentage

  • To calculate the percentage using the GPA scores, the following formula is to be used:
  • Percentage = GPA X 9.5
  • For eg, Percentage in Above Example = 8 X 9.5 = 76%
