CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam 2020 to Have Two Test Paper Options

CBSE is expected to implement higher and standard level question paper for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam 2020. If the idea receives a positive response, CBSE will extend the same for Class 12.

CBSE is planning to implement two test paper options for the Class 10 Mathematics exam 2020. As per the plan, CBSE will prepare two types of question paper for Class 10 Mathematics exam. Students willing to take up Mathematics in higher studies can choose higher-level Mathematics paper while students willing to choose other courses apart from Maths can choose standard-level question paper. If everything materializes as per the plan, CBSE will include the two test paper options in the Class 10 board exams registration form.

The syllabus of standard and higher-level Maths question paper will remain the same, and there will be a difference in the difficulty level of the questions. If the idea works well and receives positive feedback, CBSE will extend the same for Class 12 board exams. CBSE has constituted an expert committee comprising of mathematics experts from universities, schools and NCERT (National Council of Education Research and Training).
