2 levels Basic, Standard Maths Class 10 CBSE Board Exam 2019 – 2020

CBSE is introducing two levels of Maths for All India Secondary School Examination from the Academic Session ending March, 2020 onwards:

NCF 2005, Position Paper by National Focus Group on Examination Reforms states that – just as we allow students and schools, some element of choice in the choosing of their subjects, they should have the choice of picking one of two levels within that subject. As per NCF, not only would the two levels of examinations cater for different kinds of learners and allow different levels of testing, it would also reduce overall student stress levels. It is well known that students experience greatest stress before and during their most ‘difficult’ subject exam. Keeping in view of this important aspect and as evidenced by the Board results, the Board has decided to introduce two levels of examination in Mathematics for the students who are going to appear in the Board examination for the academic session ending March 2020 onwards. The details of this scheme are as under :

  • The two levels of Examination will be held in the subject of Mathematics in the Board examination for Class X in the year 2020 and the same shall not be applicable to the internal assessment in class X.
  • There shall not be two levels of Assessment/Examination for class IX.
  • First level would be the same as the existing one, and the other would be an easier level.
  • The nomenclature for the two Examinations will be; Mathematics-Standard for the existing level of examination, and MathematicsBasic for the easier level of examination.
  • The syllabus, class room teaching and internal assessment for both the levels of examination would remain the same; so that the students get an opportunity to study the whole range of topics throughout the year and are able to decide upon the level of Board examination depending upon their aptitude and abilities.
  • The Standard level will be meant for students who wish to opt for Mathematics at Sr. Secondary level and the Basic level would be for students not keen to pursue Mathematics at higher levels.
  • A student will have the right to choose between the two levels of Examination at the time of submission of List of Candidates (LoC) by the affiliated school to the Board online.
  • In case student fails at any level of Mathematics, he/she can appear at the compartment examination as per norms of the Board according to the options given below:

FAQs on Two Levels of Mathematics for Class 10 CBSE Board Exam 2019 – 2020

Q.1. What is the difference between the Standard Level and Basic Level of Mathematics in class X Board examination to be held in 2020?
Ans: The existing Mathematics examination is the Standard Level Examination. Standard-Level and Basic-level Question papers shall be based on the same syllabus. However the Standard-Level Mathematics assesses higher Mathematical abilities compared to Basic-Level. Accordingly, the difficulty level of the Mathematics – ‘Basic’ is less than that of Mathematics-‘Standard’.
Q.2. Are we increasing the burden on the child by introducing the concept of two Levels of Exams in Mathematics?
Ans: No, because the option to pick either Level is with the student. Further, the syllabus prescribed by CBSE will remain the same for both the levels.
Q.3. Will this lead to dilution of Mathematics syllabus/teaching?
Ans: No, the idea is to make the evaluation more students centric and reduce the pressure on the student who doesn’t want to pursue Mathematics after class X.
Q.4. Can a student opt for both Standard Level and Basic Level Exams?
Ans: No. There is only one option, either Mathematics-Standard or Mathematics-Basic.
Q.5. To continue Mathematics as a subject in class XI/XII and further, which Level Exam does a student need to pass?
Ans: Mathematics-Standard is to be passed at class X, for taking up Mathematics at Sr. Secondary level.
Q.6. If a student qualifies only the Mathematics-Basics in class X, can he/she opt for Mathematics in class XI/XII?
Ans: No. If he/she intends to take Mathematics in class XI/XII, he/she has to pass Mathematics-Standard.
Q.7. If a student has registered for the Basic Level Exam but wishes to appear for the Standard Level after declaration of result, can he/she do so?
Ans: Yes. He/She can appear in the Standard Level at the Compartment examination, if he/she wishes to do so after passing the Basic Mathematics Examination.
Q.8 How I can get the Sample Papers and Q.P designs of Standard Level and Basics level Mathematics papers?
Ans: Sample papers and Blue Print based on the curriculum for 2019 – 2020 will be made available on : www.cbseacademic.nic.in., in due course of time.
