The total marks of all the topics you obtained divided by the full marks multiplied by 100.

Above this step, It will give you an accurate answer also.

Still, you have confused, don’t worry below. I am going to describe here the steps which will help you to clear your doubts. Assume we have six subjects and their marks like

  1. Math-60
  2. Biology-70
  3. Science-65
  4. History-80
  5. English-75
  6. Physics-85

Step-1: Know the formula

Here is the formula

X1 + X2 + X3 + X4 +………+ Xn / n * 100

Now calculate the sum of all subjects marks

Total aggregate marks = 60+70+65+80+75+85 = 435

Total marks = 600

Step-2: Learn to calculate the normal percentage

At first, know how to calculate the average percentage. According to the formula, put all the marks in the formula. After putting the digits, it will be looks like

Total aggregate marks

————————————– * 100

Total subjects marks


60+70+65+80+75+85 = 435

—————————————— * 100


=> 72 (Ans)

In this method, you suppose that you need an aggregate percentage of four subjects out of six. The four subjects are Math, Biology, Science, History, and the marks are 60, 70, 65, 80.

So, now the calculation will be

Total aggregate marks

————————————– * 100

Total subjects marks


60+70+65+80 = 275

—————————– * 100
