What to fill in Versatility?
Versatility is not something talking monotonously about what you do in just one field. Versatility column intends to know the varied type of activities you have been involved in.
Sports / Singing / Dancing / Mimicry / Dramatist / Author / Startup guy (even if it was a not so successful one) / etc. come here – Try to cover varied 5 points rather than 5 points only from one head here.
What is the method for calculating the percentage for HSC / SSC / Bachelors / Masters?
The percentage should be computed after taking into account all subjects/papers that you have appeared for in the examinations even if some of these subjects/papers are not considered by the Board/University/Institute for computing the final percentage of marks and awarding class/distinction.
Letter grades or grade points should be converted to percentage of marks. If your Board/University/Institute does not provide a formula for converting grade points to percentage, then divide your grade point by the maximum of the scale and multiply it by 100 to get the percentage. For example, if your grade point is 3 on a 4-point scale, the equivalent percentage of marks will be ¾ x 100 = 75.0%.
If you have acquired more than one degree either at bachelor’s, master’s or professional course levels, choose only one of these degrees for entering the percentage of marks.
