Council of Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) has today, May 02, 2022, conducted the Mathematics exam for ICSE Class 10 students. The paper was held for a duration of 1.5 hours i.e., from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. The exam was held at affiliated schools across the country, through the pen-and-paper format. Today’s semester 2 paper was subjective in nature as opposed to objective-based format followed in semester 1.
Being subjective in nature, the ICSE Semester 2 Mathematics 2022 exam will not have simple, straightforward answers. Instead, answers will be judged on the final answer as well as steps to solve each question.
The central education board (or CISCE) will soon be releasing the ICSE Semester 2 Mathematics answer key on the official website circse.org. However, a particular date or time has not been specified. So, in the meantime, students can take a look at unofficial answer keys published online by educators. Most of these answer keys are available in the video-based format, on YouTube. Following this format, educator discusses the entire paper and mentions points to cover in each answer.
