The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has introduced two levels of Maths exam in the Board examination for Class 10 students from 2020 and the same shall not be applicable to the internal assessment in class X. There shall not be two levels of Assessment/Examination for class IX.
First level would be the same as the same as the existing one and other would be an easier level.
The nomenclature for the two Examinations will be Mathematics-Standard for the existing level of examination, and Mathematics-Basic for the easier level of examination.
Students who fail or get a compartment in Mathematics-Standard exam will have the option to appear for compartment exam in any of the two levels. "The syllabus, classroom teaching and internal assessment for both the levels of examination would remain the same; so that the students get an opportunity to study the whole range of topics throughout the year and are able to decide upon the level of Board examination depending upon their aptitude and abilities," according to the official circular.
The Standard level will be meant for students who wish to opt for Mathematics at Sr. Secondary level and the Basic level would be for students not keen to pursue Mathematics at higher levels.
A student will have the right to choose between the two levels of Examination at the time of submission of List of Candidates (LoC) by the affiliated school to the Board online.
A student who qualifies the Mathematics-Basic, shall be given an option to appear in Mathematics-Standard at the time of Compartment exams as per norms of the Board, in case he/she changes his/her mind to pursue Mathematics at Senior Secondary level.
