posted a message on Step-by-step CGPA to percentage conversion

Converting CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) to a percentage involves a simple mathematical calculation. The process may vary slightly depending on the grading system used by your educational institution. The following steps outline the general method:

### Step 1: Understand the Grading Scale

Before you begin, ensure you know the grading scale used by your institution. Different universities might have different grading systems.

### Step 2: Determine the Maximum CGPA and Corresponding Percentage

Find out the maximum CGPA that can be achieved in your institution. For example, if the maximum CGPA is 10, then:

- Maximum Percentage = 100%
- Maximum CGPA = 10

### Step 3: Gather Your CGPA

### Step 4: Calculate Percentage Equivalent

Use the formula:

$\text{Percentage} = \left(\frac{\text{CGPA}}{\text{Maximum CGPA}}\right) \times \text{Maximum Percentage}$

For example, if your CGPA is 8 and the maximum CGPA is 10:

$\text{Percentage} = \left(\frac{8}{10}\right) \times 100\% = 80\%$

### Step 5: Round Off (if Necessary)

Round off the calculated percentage to the required decimal places according to your institution's guidelines. Some may require rounding to the nearest whole number, while others may allow one or two decimal places.

### Example:

Suppose the maximum CGPA is 10 and your CGPA is 8.4.

Using the formula:

$\text{Percentage} = \left(\frac{8.4}{10}\right) \times 100\% = 84\%$
