New Delhi : When it comes to mathematics exam, most students spend tensed days and nights. In order to relief them, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) have decided to have two levels of maths exam for class 10 from 2020 onwards. Along with the existing level, an easier mathematics syllabus will be introduced under level-2. 

An official CBSE circular mentions that the current mathematics subject will be called Mathematics-Standard and the easier level will be called Mathematics-Basic. 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.

Students who will appear for the exam with Basic-level will not be considered for pursuing mathematics at the higher education level. So, to pursue maths in higher education, Mathematics-Standard will remain the qualifying exam.

Please note that the right to select between the two levels of Maths paper will remain with students and they will have to submit their choice in the list of candidates (LoC) before their exam to the Board.
