Calculating GPA from Indian Percentage System

I am looking forward to find GPA for applying to foreign universities. So, Need to calculate GPA from my percentage. I tried to find the appropriate formula to calculate GPA for Indian education system. But I found some answer but was unsatisfactory. Now, I found the solution for it and would like to share who are looking for the solutions like me. Its a simple GPA calculation formula which may be helpful to you.
I have calculated GPA for my final year engineering score.

  • I got 910/1500 in Final year. Calculating GPA for 4 point grading system.
  • GOT: The List of 4 toppers of my class (From college admin. office or department)
1. 1112/1500
2. 1111/1500
3. 1102/1500
4. 1095/1500

  • Calculate the Average of toppers : (1112+1111+1102+1095) / 4 = 1105
  • GPA = [(My score) / (Avg. of toppers) ] * ( Grading System You Need eg. 4 pointer, 10 Pointer etc.) = [910/1105] * 4 = 3.29
  • GPA for 4 pointer system is 3.29
  • If you need to calculate 10 pointer GPA system then multiply with 10. GPA = [910/1105] * 10 = 8.24
So, My GPA for Final year is 3.29/4.

Likewise, you can calculate for your first, second & third year and get the average. That will be the avg. GPA of your Degree or your major of studies.

All the best for the future ahead.
