CBSE Class 12 result 2024 has been officially announced by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today, on May 13, 2024. Students can access their subject-wise marks through the CBSE's official website at cbseresults.nic.in, digilocker.com, or the UMANG app. They can calculate their CBSE 12th percentages using online percentage calculators or manually with pen and paper. The CBSE Class 12 percentage will play an important role in the undergraduate admission process for certain universities.

## Steps to Calculating Your Percentage CBSE Class 12 :

1. Identify the Main Subjects: The CBSE board calculates percentages based on marks in five main subjects. These subjects typically exclude additional subjects like Physical Education or elective courses. CBSE 12th marksheet will indicate which subjects are considered for the percentage calculation.

2. Add Up the Marks: Once students have identified five main subjects, simply add together the marks received in each subject.

3. Divide by the Total Marks: The total marks possible for all five subjects combined is usually 500 (assuming each subject has a maximum of 100 marks). Divide the sum of marks in all five subjects by 500.

4. Multiply by 100 to Get the Percentage: Finally, multiply the result from step 3 by 100 to convert it into a percentage. This will be the overall CBSE Class 12 percentage.

Example:
Let's say you scored the following marks in your five main subjects:

• English: 85
• Mathematics: 92
• Physics: 88
• Chemistry: 78
• Maths: 90
50+ Entrance Exams for 10+2 Students Must Not Miss

Calculation:

• Sum of Marks = 85 + 92 + 88 + 78 + 90 = 433
• Result (after division): 433 ÷ 500 = 0.866
• Percentage: 0.866 × 100 = 86.6%

Therefore, the CBSE Class 12 percentage in this example would be 86.6%. There are several online percentage calculator tools including percentagecalculator.net and calculator.net.
Moreover, in the event that a candidate has presented more than five subjects, the responsibility of selecting the top five subjects may lie with the admitting institution or employer. Additionally, it should be noted that the Board does not compute, announce, or disclose the percentage of marks. If the percentage of marks is necessary for further education or employment purposes, any calculations required may be carried out by the admitting institution or employer.
