PEC University Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA): The performance of a student in a particular semester is measured by SGPA. It is a weighted average of the grades secured in all the courses taken in a semester and scaled to a maximum of 10.
If the grade points associated with the letter grades awarded to a student are g1 , g2 , g3 , g4 and g5 in five courses and the corresponding credits are w1 , w2 , w3 , w4 and w5 , respectively, then
Let a student has registered for one 5-credit course, four 4-credit courses, and one 3-credit course during a semester (total 24 credits).
Let the student secures A+, A, B+, C+, C, and D grades, respectively, in these courses, then
SGPA = (5×10 + 4×9 + 4×8 + 4×6 + 4×5 + 3×4) / 24 = 174 / 24 = 7.25
PEC University Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) – It gives the performance of a student in all the courses registered up to and including the latest completed semester.
