News In Detailed

Ushering in positive reforms, Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE has issued a circular announcing 2 levels of Mathematics for students of Class X for different needs. Accepting the unrealistic stress the subject can have on students who do not wish to further pursue the subject, CBSE has decided to introduce a Basic and a Standard Mathematics for Class X students for CBSE Board Examinations 2020. What makes it better is that it would only imply a difference in testing but no true difference in instruction.

In a circular issued by the board today, CBSE shared its plan to test the students on Mathematics Basic and Mathematics Standard. The present level and curriculum of mathematics would continue to remain the same. All the students, the circular reads, would be instructed the same course and explained the concepts in the same manner. The difference lies in how the students would be assessed during the board examinations.

Accordingly, while the internal assessment would continue to be at same level, students at the time of filling the LOC would have the option of opting for Mathematics Standard (the general level) or Mathematics Basic. While Mathematics standard is for students who wish to pursue the subjects in higher classes, Mathematics basic is for students who would rather not do that.

Also, in case a student was to fail in the opted Level, he/she would be able to appear for that level or the level below in the compartment examination. That is, in case a student opted for Mathematics basic but failed, he would be given an option to appear again in Mathematics Basic. However, a student who had opted for Mathematics Standard and failed to clear would have an alternative to appear for either Mathematics Basic or Mathematics Standard during compartmental examinations.

Furthermore, CBSE has also provided that a student who opts for Mathematics Basic and clears it would have the opportunity to appear for the Mathematic Standard examination during the compartmental examinations – should he wish to pursue mathematics in higher classes.

The move is a progressive step forward towards an education tailored for every child. The steps would also usher in a better understanding of the subject once the stress of performing is removed. The Official notification from CBSE regarding the same is attached here for quick reference.
