SGPA (Semester Grade Point Average): Let us consider that a student has got A+ grade in the 4 credit course, A grade in the 2 credit course, O grade in the 3 credit course and F grade in the 3 credit course.
SGPA for the semester under consideration is (9×4 + 8×2 +10×3 + 0x3) / (4+2+3+3) = (36+16+30+0)/12 = 82/12 = 6.83.
SGPA = 6.83 in 10.0 point scale.
