How to calculate your GPA for MIT Manipal Students

Your Grade Point Average (GPA) for MIT Manipal is calculated as follows –

The first and the second semester are of 25 credits each. The grade point with respect to grades are mentioned below:

A+ – 10                                         A – 9

B – 8                                            C – 7

D – 6                                            E – 5

F – Fail

The grade you get depends on a bell curve which is made on the basis of the marks of all the students in your batch. Thus, passing marks or cut-off marks of any subject cannot be pre-determined (even with experience).

MIT Manipal Calculating GPA

To calculate GPA for MIT Manipal, multiply the number of credits of that subject to the equivalent grade point you got in that subject and then divide by the total number of credits in that semester. (Labs are generally of 1 credit and theory subjects are of 4 credits, whereas ENV/English is of 3 credits).

For example, if I get/aspire for the following grades,

  • Subject 1 (4 Credits) – 10 (A+ Grade)
  • Subject 2 (4 Credits) – 8 (B Grade)
  • Subject 3 (4 Credits) – 8 (B Grade)
  • Subject 4 (4 Credits) – 5 (E Grade)
  • Subject 5 (4 Credits) – 7 (C Grade)
  • Subject 6 (3 Credits) – 9 (A Grade)
  • Subject 7 (1 Credit) – 10 (A+ Grade)
  • Subject 8 (1 Credit) – 0 (Fail)

Then my GPA will be calculated as follows –

(4*10) + (4*8) + (4*8) + (4*5) + (4*7) + (3*9) + (1*10) + (1*0)
______________________________________________
(4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 3 + 1 + 1)

= 40+32+32+20+28+27+10+0
__________________________
25

= 7.56

How to calculate Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)?

On a similar basis, to calculate CGPA, multiply the GPA with the number of credits in that semester and then divide by the total number of credits till the present semester.

For Example –

If my GPA in First Semester is 7.56, 8.23 in second semester and the number of credits in each semester is 25 then, my CGPA will be calculated as –

(7.56*25) + (8.23*25)
_____________________
25 +25

=7.895 ~ 7.90
