Hyderabad: The two modes of Mathematics question paper for Class 10 students of CBSE is giving positive results, according to the board. The basic and standard levels of Mathematics question paper is a breather to those who are not interested in the subject, said CBSE. However, the syllabus is the same for all the Class 10 students. Only at the time of examination, students will get two options.
About 32 percent of Class 10 students across the country opted for basic level Mathematics, it said. Over 19 lakh students are expected to take the CBSE Class 10 exams beginning February 15, 2020.
As many as 6 lakh students have opted for basic level question paper of Mathematics for the forthcoming board exam. New Delhi recorded the highest number of students, about 70 per cent, going for this option. Students in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh have preferred the standard level question paper as they want to pursue engineering.
The number of students opting for basic level Mathematics question paper is very less in Telugu states, said CBSE officials.
Students of basic level Mathematics have the option of appearing for standard question paper in the subsequent supplementary exam, they said. But, they can't join groups with Mathematics subjects.
