The Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) is a weighted average of the Grade Points obtained in the various subjects studied in a semester, the weight for an individual subject being the “Credits” for the course as specified in the curriculum. If a student secures 90% or above marks in all the subjects, he/she will get a perfect 10 SGPA!

So Greeshma has secured 90% or above marks in all the subjects in the first semester B Tech examinations. That is the meaning of Greeshma’s achievement!!
