The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is inviting applications from students of Class 8 to 10 for the Aryabhata Ganit Challenge 2022. The board says it a joyful mathematics assessment for Class 8 to 10. 

“Application of Mathematics in daily life needs development of certain competencies and to promote such competencies among students through joyful assessment, Aryabhata Ganit Challenge (AGC) is conducted by CBSE,” the board said.

“The AGC will mainly focus on the extent to which children are able to apply mathematics to their daily life. The feedback from the performance of the test will help the Board to handhold the schools and children in application of mathematics in daily life,” the board added.

All students of Class 8 to 10 in CBSE affiliated schools are eligible to take part in the competition. An affiliated school can apply through the link available on www.cbse.nic.in and www.cbseacademic.nic.in on before November 15, 2022 till 5.30pm.

As per the rules, during the period from 16th to 21st November 2022, a question paper will be made available to the registered schools with answer key through the portal.

Registered schools will conduct the test by using the question paper to identify top three students. In case more than three students score same marks at the top level, a suitable screening test may be conducted by the schools at their own level to identify the top three students.

“All schools may encourage their students to participate in Āryabhaṭa Ganit Challenge and avail the opportunity to identify and nurture Mathematical skills and potential of students. The participation and performance in this challenge may also be acknowledged in the portfolio of the students,” the board added.
