While applying for Punjab Residency Program (Central Induction), you need to enter marks for each professional exam. If your institute/university has a GPA system, the following steps can help you in converting GPA into marks.
1- Every university has given GPA formulae (against percentage and Grade) in the final transcript or degree.
2- You can easily convert your grade / GPA into percentage and then enter your marks in Punjab residency portal or CIP calculator.
3- The following table shows last year GPA / Grade / Percentage issued by Dow University of Health Sciences Karachi. (yours might be different)
|Marks obtained in the percentage range||GPA||Grade|
4- If you have a GPA of 3.4, your Grade is B+, then your percentage is in this range (67-69). As per Punjab residency Program formulae, the lower percentage will be counted. (See marks conversion manual on the official website of PRP). So 67 will be the percentage in your case. You will enter 67 marks in the obtained marks section and 100 marks in the total marks section.
5- What if you have two semesters in one year?: The answer is simple if in semester one you have 67 percent and in semester two you have 63 percent, you will enter 130 (67+63=130) is obtained and 200 in total marks section.
Hope it clears all, if you are still confused or have any query feel free to contact.
