Aggregate Percentage


Aggregate percentage these two words are well known to those students who has filled the competitive exam form once in a while of their life. But many of those students who doesn't fill any competitive exam form could never hear about this percentage. They only hear about normal percentage not aggregate percentage.

But don't worry I am here to tell you not only the meaning of the aggregate percentage but also the exact method to calculate the aggregate percentage for different case. For example aggregate percentage for 12th board, 10th board, for graduation, for 5 years semesters, three years semesters, for two subjects, for SGPA etc.

Before we start discussing about how to calculate aggregate percentage. We should know what is the meaning of aggregate percentage. But for simplicity to understand aggregate percentage firstly we should have to recall normal percentage.

So all of us well know about percentage. we define percentage as a number expressed as a part of the total number. For example if a person got 50 marks out of hundred the percentage he got is 50%.

Let us take one more example to better understand percentage. Because without understanding percentage there is a hard to understand aggregate percentage.

Suppose a student got there class 10th board result. The total marks is 500 having 100 marks for each subject. That means there are 5 subjects. Math, science, Hindi, English, and social studies. 


Subject          Marks total marks
Math             60 100
Science             80 100
Hindi             50 100
English             40 100
S.S.T                    70       100
Total:            300 500

We have to calculate total percentage that student got on their class 10th board.

Percentage = 300/ 500 ✕ 100

60%

What is Aggregate percentage?

Aggregate percentage is the percent (or number) that a student scored in a specific subject. whereas the percentage is defined as the percent that you scored in overall subject. for example aggregate percentage is calculated only for particular number of subject, no matter the number of subject would be.

In above example the total percentage that a student got is 60%. but if we calculate the aggregate percentage of last two subject that would be

40 + 70 / 200 ✕ 100

= 55%

The difference between percentage and aggregate percentage are only that, the percentage is calculated for overall subject but the aggregate percentage is calculated for even a single subject.

Uses of Aggregate percentage

Aggregate percentage is using in many field. Such as entrance exam like KVPY, JEE etc. Aggregate percentage are asked during the form filling of that entrance exam. Their is a option where candidates should fill their aggregate percentage to check their eligibility criteria.

Jee mains and advanced need 75% marks in board exam with jee advanced result to qualify JEE. For example KVPY also need 60% marks in Physics, chemistry and math or biology. that 60% is aggregate percentage. Because this is the percentage calculated only in PCB/M.

The following lists are the uses of Aggregate percentage
  • Aggregate percentage used to calculate graduation percentage.
  • Aggregate percentage used to calculate two subject percentage.
  • SGPA percentage calculated by Aggregate percentage.

How to calculate Aggregate percentage?

Calculation of aggregate percentage is not so hard if you understand this. In above discussion we already understood the meaning and how to calculate aggregate percentage. But here we discuss in more detail. we learn here not only the calculation of aggregate percentage but also how to calculate it in different case. first of all we should learn the general calculation of aggregate percentage.

Aggregate percentage is calculated in such a way that the total number scored by candidate in a particular subject divided by full marks of the mentioned subject and then whole result is multiplied by 100.

For example a candidate has total 5 subject. each subject has full marks of 100. we need aggregate percentage of first two subject then,

Let candidate got 60 out of 100 in subject 1 and 40 out of 100 in subject 2. So the aggregate percentage is.
60 + 40 / 200 X 100 = 50% aggregate

How to calculate aggregate percentage of diploma

Here we take diploma course for 3 years. To calculate diploma 3 years aggregate percentage. Let there are total 1000 marks of each year. we take,
  • 25% marks from 1st year's total marks of the exam.
  • 50% marks from 2nd year's total marks of the exam.
  • 100% marks from 3rd year's total marks of the exam.
 After finding percentage of all three years as rule mentioned above. add all of the three obtained marks. let we get 'X' marks. Now, we take,
  • 25% marks from 1st year's obtained marks by the candidate.
  • 50% marks from 2nd year's obtained marks by the candidate.
  • 100% marks from 3rd year's obtained marks by the candidate.
Now, again add all of these three numbers obtained by solving percentage as rule mentioned above let we get 'Y' after adding. Now, divide X by Y. (or X/Y) and then multiply it by 100. (that means X / Y X 100). Hence the remaining percentage after solving this is aggregate percentage of three years diploma.

Examples for better understand.
  • If you got 700 out of 1000 in first year then calculate 25% of 700 as well as 25% of 1000.
25% of 700 = 175 marks and 25% of 1000 = 250.
  • If you got 800 out of 1000 in second year then we calculate 50% of 800 as well as 50% of 1000.
50% of 800 = 400 marks and 50% of 1000 = 500 marks.
  • If you got 600 out of 1000 in third year then we calculate 100% of 600 and 100% of 1000.
100% of 600 = 600 marks and 100% of 1000 = 1000 marks.

Now, add all of the obtained marks by student ( 175 + 400 + 600) = 1175
Again, Add all of the obtained marks by college (250 + 500 + 1000) = 1750

Aggregate percentage = 1175 / 1750 X 100 = 67.14% aggregate

How to calculate aggregate percentage for two subject

Calculating aggregate percentage is very easy. Here we take class 10 marks for calculating aggregate. Many time student fill online application form. And there he/she has to put their class 10th marks in aggregate percentage not normal percentage. So, these are the simple steps that anyone can follow to calculate aggregate percentage. But apart from this steps there are many tools available on the internet that can easily calculate your aggregate percentage online.

Please note that this steps also works for class 12th students. Even for those who have five subject in Exam.

Step 1:- List your total subjects that came in your exam.

Step2:- Write your total obtained marks out of full marks of the exam.

Step3:- Add the total marks of at least two subject and divide it by 200.

Step4:- Calculate the aggregate percentage by multiplying it to 100.

Step5:- Now, the result will be your aggregate percentage of two subject.

Examples of calculating aggregate percentage for two subjects

Let the total subject is five in the examination. Now, we have to calculate aggregate percentage of at least two subject.

Subject          Marks total marks

Math             60 100
Science             80 100
Hindi             50 100
English             40 100
S.S.T                    70       100

Here we take two subject that is Math and science. The obtained marks of the math is 60 out of 100. The obtained marks of science is 80 out of 100.

Math

Obtained marks = 60
Full marks = 100

Science

Obtained marks = 80
Full marks = 100

Aggregate percentage of Math and science is (60 + 80 / 100 + 100) ✕ 100

140 / 200 ✕ 100

70% Aggregate is the answer.

Hence, If you want to calculate aggregate percentage for three subject, Four subject and so on, then just follow this simple above rule.
