Important Note I (Conversion of CGPA to Percentage)

In the application form, only aggregate percentage shall be taken from the applicants. The applicants having grading scheme i.e. result in CGPA, will be required to convert their CGPA to percentage according to the conversion formulae prevailing in their respective university/institute. If any university/institute does not provide the conversion from CGPA to percentage, the conversion formulae in that case will be "multiplication of CGPA by 10" to derive the percentage.

In addition, the applicant has to upload a certificate on the official letter head from university/institute indicating the conversion from the CGPA to percentage. However, the applicants who don’t upload conversion certificate will be required to give an undertaking that "My university/institute does not provide conversion certificate. At any point of time, if it is found that the university/institute provides conversion certificate, my admission/studentship shall be liable for cancellation"

In the application form, only aggregate percentage will be taken from the applicants. Please read the instructions below.

If the University/Institute provides percentage as primary evaluation:

Applicants should directly fill the percentage in the form. In this case, the applicant will be required to give an undertaking form which is available here.

If the University/Institute provides CGPA or equivalent grading as primary evaluation:

The applicants having grading scheme i.e. result in CGPA or equivalent grading, will be required to convert their CGPA to percentage according to the conversion formulae prevailing in their respective university/institute. In addition, the applicant must upload a certificate on the official letter head from university/institute indicating the conversion from the CGPA to percentage.

If the applicant’ university/institute does not provide the conversion from CGPA to percentage, the conversion formulae will be “multiplication of CGPA by 10” to derive the percentage. For example, if CGPA is 7.5, the equivalent in percentage will be 7.5x10 = 75%. In this case, the applicant will be required to give an undertaking form which is available here

The COVID-19 situation has created many obstacles in our lives. IIITD understands the constraints many of our applicants are facing in getting CGPA to percentage conversion certificate issued from their respective University/Institute. To help mitigate these challenges, we have decided to allow such candidates to give a self-undertaking at the time of application submission, for which the applicant should carefully check what is the conversion rule of their University/Institute. All such candidates have to submit the duly signed conversion certificate from the University/Institute at the time of document verification, failing which their admission/studentship shall be liable for cancellation.

Download here the updated undertaking form.
