CBSE Students, Here’s How Your Math Exams Are Going to Change

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in acknowledging that math is a “difficult” subject that instils a “sense of fear” in many students. It is proposing to bring about two levels of mathematics for the academic session ending March 2020.

Mathematics was and continues to be one of the biggest stress points for me. Just when I thought I would never have to solve another math problem in my life, my six-year-old began his journey with the subject.

However, there is something to be cheerful about.

Here’s what you ought to know:

1. There will be two levels of mathematics papers that students can attempt. The first will continue to have the same difficulty level that currently exists, while the second level would be easier.

2. They will be called Mathematics-Standard for the existing level of examination, and Mathematics-Basic for the easier level.

3. The syllabi, methods of teaching, and internal assessments will remain the same. The change will be brought in only during the time of examination.

4. The Standard level will be meant for students who wish to opt for Mathematics at the senior secondary level, and the Basic level would be for students not keen to pursue Mathematics at higher levels.

5. A student can choose between the two levels depending on their aptitude and ability when the list of candidates (LoC) is sent to the board by the affiliated school.

6. This development will be evaluated, following which, a similar option may be extended to students appearing for the class 12 examinations as well.

The CBSE is now laying a lot of emphasis on helping the students fine-tune their critical thinking abilities and encourage them to think out-of-the-box. In this regard, there have been many changes that the board has set into motion.

From changing the exam pattern to bringing about amendments in the CBSE bylaws, you can read about some of those changes in a previous article.

We do hope that these changes help lakhs of students appearing for the board examination in breathing easy and putting their best mathematical self forward.
