CBSE Concludes Class 10 Mathematics Exam; Students Find Paper Easy

The initial reaction to class 10 mathematics question paper has been positive. According to reports, CBSE class 10 students who sat for the Mathematics exam today found the paper easy.

We spoke to Anita Sirohi, and Sutha Sahadevan, both mathematics teacher at Army Public School, Delhi Cantt., about their analysis of the Mathematics question paper. They said that the question paper adhered to the exam pattern released by CBSE.

They said that the Standarda Maths paper, which may students feared to be difficult, was easier than expectde. 75 per cent questions in the paper were directly from NCERT. The Basic Maths paper had some lengthy calculations in section A and section B. Set 2 and 3 for Basic Math did not have any theorems which was expected.

In Standard Math paper, they said, the questions which were not from the book were direct and hence also scoring. In the Basic Math paper, the NCERt questions were of higher order and two questions were from the optional exercise.

This was the first year that CBSE held exam for Basic Mathematics and Standard Mathematics. While Basic Mathematics was supposed to be easier, students were confused about the difficulty-level of the Standard Mathematics paper.

One crucial difference between the two Mathematics papers is that Standard Mathematics paper had more application-based questions in comparison to Basic Mathematics paper. As per reports, more than 6 lakh students opted to appear for basic mathematics paper.

Mathematics is one of the compulsory papers till class 10. The theory part carries 80 marks and practical and internal assessment component carries 20 marks.
