(1) Some Universities/Institutes/Boards do not award Class or percentage of marks and allot Aggregate Grade Points (e.g. CGPA/OGPA/CPI, etc.). In case University/Institute/Board defines criteria for conversion of Aggregate Grade Point into percentage of marks, the same will be accepted. However, where the University/ Institute/ Board does not define criteria for conversion of Aggregate Grade Point into percentage of marks, in the degree/passing certificates, the undefined parameter(s) would be worked out as under:
Equivalent CGPA/OGPA/CPI or similar terminologies allotted on a 10 point scale - Aggregate Percentage of Marks:-
                                                    6.75                                                    -                60%

(2) Aggregate Grade Point or percentage of marks where awarded would mean aggregate over the entire duration of the course.
