guys.just one small query....most of u are engineers I guess, so how will you convert your dgpa/cgpa to percentage, just multiply by 10, or deduct -0.75( this depends on ur university) and then multiply by 10. I know this is a silly question but it's bothering me a lot. My dgpa is 8.81, if I...


guys.just one small query....most of u are engineers I guess, so how will you convert your dgpa/cgpa to percentage, just multiply by 10, or deduct -0.75( this depends on ur university) and then multiply by 10. I know this is a silly question but it's bothering me a lot. My dgpa is 8.81, if I follow the 0.75 rule it will plummet to 80.6% from 88.1 %(already I'm a general engineer male. There is no such formula in my univ(atleast I have not seen) but there is a common rumour of deducting 0.75...

....pleaseeee share ur views guys.....this thing is bothering me

guys, just type convert dgpa to percentage pagalguy in google, u will get various links, read those, and it will make u more confused, some r saying it doesn't matter ( one I know, 'batthecat' he is from WBUT, converted C with that *10 thing) and some are saying it's high risk ( somebody was disqualified during verification prior to the interview)..........seriously it's confusing..

@christianbale I am JU EE 2011 passout bro My final GPA report had the percentage... And to my utter surprise it wasn't just 10*GPA (Had GPA of 7.97 & percentage of 75)... So my suggestion wud be 1st calculate ur CGPA (till date)... Hope u know the weightages for each year... And then convert that GPA to percentage and then consider a factor of 0.9 as true percentage will always be less than ur GPA

@WarriorPrincess16

three solutions have acid content 40%, 60% and 80% respectively. when x, (x+1), (x+2) ml respectively are taken from the three and the mixed, the resultant is 65% acid. what can be said about x?



1 answer 1) 0.1 < x <= 0.5 ml



3 answers 2) 0.5 < x <= 1.5 ml



6 answers 3) 1.5 < x <= 2.5 ml



0 answers 4) 2.5 < x <= 3.5 ml

When x, x+1, x+2 ml are taken, the total volume for consideration becomes 3x+3.

The acid contained in the three portions of the volume respectively = 0.4x, 0.6(x+1), 0.8(x+2)

Total acid content = 1.8x+2.2

Now (1.8x+2.2)/(3x+3) = 65/100

After simplification we get x=1.667 

mehulvarshney
@mehulvarshney

the volume of acid in the new solution is x*0.4 + 0.6*(x+1) + 0.8*(x+2) in total volume of x+x+1+x+2. which is given to be 0.65

so 1.8x +2.2/(3x+3) = 0.65

x = 5/3 = 1.667

BULL MOCK CAT1:    Question No. 37

DIRECTIONS : Choose the option that represents the most logical order of the given sentences. 

A. One measure of the strength and importance of the feminist movement is the extent to which philosophers from a broad spectrum - from conservatives to radicals or from historians of ancient philosophy to deconstructionists - now view the discussion of gender issues as an important part of their discipline.

B. Not only this, many regard it as central to the very rationale of their research initiatives.

C. Using a parallel yardstick, the environmental movement has grown rapidly in strength and importance and one should expect a much more explosive agenda at global conferences.

D. The range of philosophers who address environmental issues is probably as broad as that discussing gender, which is as much an achievement for the philosophers as it is for the environmentalists.

E. Given this rapid and dramatic rise of philosophical concern for environmental issues, we should expect and welcome serious disagreements about both the underlying conceptual and historical reasons for human destruction of the environment and the proposed solutions.

Options are

1. ADEBC          2. DEBCA            3. DEABC         4. ABCDE

Hi Friends and guides, I am seeking admission for FPM in OB/HR - IIMs (A,B,C,L,K,I), ISB.

I read that GRE scores are valid for 5 years. I took the test in April 2010. Got a score of 1430 or on current scale 328 (162-VA + 166-QA). Analytical Writing was a lowly 38%ile.

Will this score be valid for admissions in 2015? Is the score suffice or i need to retake the test?

Please advice.

(i) The number of symbols between Torch and Banana, neither of which is at an extreme end, is not more than two.
(ii) Out of the two middlemost symbols, one is named after an animal.
(iii) The symbol 6th to the right of Torch is Farmer, and exactly one of the two is at an extreme end.
