In a significant move, the Gauhati University has announced relief for students under the non-CBCS (Choice Based Credit System) courses.
The university has allowed the use of CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) fair value and introduced the CGPA x 10 formula for calculating cumulative grades. This decision aims to provide equitable opportunities for students and promote academic excellence.
CGPA is a grading system which is used by boards and universities to measure the overall academic achievement of a student.
Commonly in most of the colleges and universities the equivalent percentage is calculated by multiplying 9 or 9.5 as a multiplier. Thus, including 10 as a multiplier for percentage calculation will definitely be a grace for the students under non-CBCS UG courses.
