Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) successfully conducted the Class 10 Maths exam today, December 04, 2021. The exam was held for a duration of 1 hour and 30 minutes. Students were expected to finish the paper between 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. This is another major subject exam conducted for Class 10 students in a pen-and-paper setting. As per most students, the paper was balanced with equal weightage given to each topic covered in the syllabus.
Mathematics is usually the toughest subject for most students. Hence, many were worried and stressed about today’s paper. However, if they had properly studied each topic in the CBSE Term I 2021-22 syllabus, solved the examples, in-text questions, and exercises, this paper would have been a piece of cake of them.
CBSE Class 10 Maths Standard (Code 041) Exam Analysis
Similar to other major subjects held so far, CBSE equally prioritized all topics relevant to the exam. So far the Maths Standard paper is concerned, the paper was overall moderate, with balanced questions. Students expressed that a few questions were challenging and demanded more than what the syllabus had detailed. Even before the examination, students and parents seemed stressed regarding the Maths exam. Some have expressed that, even though a few questions were tricky, they were doable and insights into such questions were provided in the NCERT solutions the board had earlier provided. Students were expected to solve the paper, find out the correct options and mark them in the OMR sheet. Here’s all that came in the CBSE Class 10 exam today –
# Unit I – Number Systems for 6 marks
# Unit II – Algebra for 10 marks
# Unit III – Coordinate Geometry for 6 marks
# Unit IV – Geometry for 6 marks
# Unit V – Trigonometry for 5 marks
# Unit VI – Mensuration for 4 marks
# Unit VII – Statistics & Probability for 3 marks
To make things simpler for students, CBSE had earlier, provided the Term-I syllabus for each subject. Additionally, the board had also specified the weightage given to each chapter. So, along with studying and practicing the NCERT syllabus thoroughly, students were expected to integrate this weightage into their preparation. Those who successfully integrated the weightage would have easily solved today’s paper. After all, it’s about the smart study and not non-directional hard work.
Each question in the CBSE Class 10 Maths paper was an objective-based multiple-choice question. For every correct answer, students would be allotted 1 mark. However, for every wrong or unanswered question, no marks would be deducted. Taking this into account, students who attempted the entire paper have a good chance of scoring well. Of course, the need to choose and mark the correct option. However, with no risk of negative marking, students are advised to solve the entire paper and utilize their 90 minutes wisely.
Now, that the CBSE Class 10 Maths paper is done, students can move on to the next major subject exam i.e., Computer Application scheduled on December 08, 2021. For this exam as well, the same paper pattern will follow suit.
