DU Admission Eligibility Criteria – Grade to Percentage Conversion Formula

After many trials and rejections, DU has finally prepared a formula to take out the percentage from the CGPA. The Examination Centre of the University of Delhi has prepared a formula using which the percentage of the final year students of undergraduate courses can be derived from the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). The University of Delhi has adopted this formula for converting the CGPA into the percentage:

Final Percentage of Marks (%) = CGPA based on all six semesters × 9.5

Demonstration

Let us assume that your score in different subjects is as follows: -

Political – 94

English – 88

Business Studies – 92

Accounts – 90

Now, you need to add the total marks

ð  94+88+92+90 = 364.

The percentage will be 364/4= 91%

Now, the effective percentage for B.A (Hons) English is 91%. B.Com (Hons) is 91% and B.A. (Hons) History is 91%. Deduct 2.5 from the percentage, and the final percentage will be 88.5%.

CGPA can be understood from this method too

Demonstration

Suppose your grades in five subjects are 9, 7, 9, 8 and 9.

Step 1: Add the grade points = 9+7+9+8+9 = 42

Step 2: Divide the sum by 5

42/5 = 8.4

Thus, your CGPA is 8.4

To convert the CGPA to Percentage, multiply it with 9.5.

In this case, if CGPA is 8.4 then the percentile is 8.4 * 9.5 = 79.80%
