In one of the most revolutionary reforms in the Indian education system, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has bifurcated Mathematics into Standard and Basic Level. Other than existing Standard mathematics, the class 10 students will now also have the option to opt for Basic mathematics. It will be implemented from next year, that is for CBSE Boards 2020 exams.
Standard mathematics is the existing mathematics, whereas, Basic Mathematics has been introduced for those candidates who do not wish to pursue Maths after class 10th. The level of Basic Mathematics will be easier than Standard maths. However, the syllabus for Basic and Standard maths is the same.
Central Board has introducing Basic mathematics to reduce the burden of the students. Maths requires logical and analytical skills and one cannot cram it. The students who do not wish to pursue the subject after 10th have to mandatorily study it and this leads to low score and percentage. Hence, to lessen the burden, the Board revamped the maths for class 10th students.
A student can opt either Basic or Standard maths. The selection is to be done during the class 10 form filling. Candidates cannot change the choice during the examination. However, after the announcement of CBSE Board result the basic maths students can appear for Standard Maths in the compartment examination.
CBSE is making numerous changes in the syllabus and exam pattern. This year, the Board started the exams for vocational subjects before the core subjects. For class 10th, the vocational subject exam started on February 21. The exam for core subjects was held from March 5 to 29.
It is also expected that the Board will announce the result early. The result of CBSE Class 10 is announced by the 4th week of May. However, it is expected that the Board will release it 10-15 days before in the 2nd or 3rd week of May 2019. The result will be announced online, on cbseresults.nic.in. The candidates will be able to check it by entering roll number, date of birth, school number, and center code.
