Ans. The percentage should be computed after taking into account all subjects/papers that you have appeared for in the examinations even if some of these subjects/papers are not considered by the Board/University/Institute for computing the final percentage of marks and awarding class/distinction.
Letter grades or grade points should be converted to percentage of marks. If your Board/University/Institute does not provide a formula for converting grade points to percentage, then divide your grade point by the maximum of the scale and multiply it by 100 to get the percentage. For example, if your grade point is 3 on a 4-point scale, the equivalent percentage of marks will be ¾ x 100 = 75.0%.
If you have acquired more than one degree either at bachelor’s, master’s or professional course levels, choose only one of these degrees for entering the percentage of marks
For HSC:
If you have undergone a 3-year Diploma in Engineering studies after SSC (without doing HSC) and have then done/ are doing a 3-year Degree course in Engineering, record the percentage of marks obtained in the Diploma course.
For Graduation:
If you have undergone a 5-year Integrated Master’s Degree course after your HSC, compute the percentage of marks obtained in the first three years and enter this in the Graduation area. Enter the percentage of marks obtained in the remaining two years in the Post-Graduation area. If the duration is 4 years instead of 5 years, then enter the percentage of marks obtained in all 4 years under the Graduation area. If a candidate fulfils his/ her eligibility based on his/her performance in a professional examination (e.g., CA/ICWA) which is considered equivalent to graduation, he/she should indicate in the application form marks obtained in that examination as marks obtained in Graduation area.
If you are undergoing a 5-year Integrated Master’s Degree course after your HSC, compute the percentage of marks obtained in the first three years and enter this in the Graduation area and the remaining two years in the Post-Graduation area.
