Computation of SGPA

The  following  procedure  is  to  be  adopted  to  compute  the  Semester  Grade  Point

Averagae. (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA):

The SGPA is the ratio of sum of the product of the number of credits with the grade points scored by a student in all the courses taken by a student and the sum of the number of credits of all the courses undergone by a student, i.e

SGPA (Si) =   (Ci X Gi) / Ci

Where Ci is the number of credits of the ith course and Gi is the grade point scored by the student in the ith course.

Computation of CGPA

  • The CGPA is also calculated in the same manner taking into account all the courses undergone by a student over all the semester of a programme, i.e.

CGPA =  (Ci X Si) / Ci

Where Si is the SGPA of the ith semester and Ci is the total number of credits in that semester.

  • The SGPA and CGPA shall be rounded off to 2 decimal points and reported in the transcripts.
  • Equivalent Percentage = (CGPA – 0.75) x 10


8. Award of Class After a student has satisfied the requirements prescribed for the completion of the program and is eligible for the award of B. Tech. Degree, he shall be placed in one of the following four classes:

Class Awarded CGPA to be secured From the CGPA secured from

180 Credits.

First Class with Distinction ≥ 7.75 with no subject failures
First Class ≥ 6.75 with subject failures
Second Class ≥ 5.75 to < 6.75
Pass Class ≥ 4.75 to < 5.75

 9.Minimum Instruction Days

The minimum instruction days for each semester shall be 90 working days.

10. There shall be no branch transfers after the completion of the admission process.

11. There shall be no transfer from one college/stream to another within the Constituent Colleges and Units of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Kakinada.

12. Withholding of Results
