CBSE Class 10 Maths exam pattern modification and more details

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is likely to come up with a change in the Class 10 board exams in 2019.

According to a report of Hindustan Times, the Board may introduce two sets of question papers for the mathematics exam where students will have the option to choose whether to answer a standard-level or the existing-level mathematics question paper.

Meanwhile, students will have to make the choice during filling of forms for the exam later this year, HT reported citing officials familiar with the development.

As per reports, such a decision from CBSE is to make the students, who don’t want to pursue maths for higher studies, go for a simpler question paper.

Depending on the success of the above plan, the Board may introduce the same system in Class 12. Moreover, a 15-member committee has reportedly been formed comprising mathematics experts and others to look into it.

“The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) document states that all subjects should be examined at two levels by the board, beginning with maths and English. It also said that students should have the choice between higher and standard level,” HT quoted a maths expert as saying.

Meanwhile, the board exams of Class 10 and Class 12 students (opting vocational subjects) are likely to begin in February next year.
