CBSE Board, early this year, announced a major change in the structure of Maths examination for class 10 students. From 2020 onwards, students appearing in the board exams will have the option to appear in an easier version of the paper. The change was begun keeping in mind the students who don't wish to pursue maths after class 10. Through the introduction of 'Basic Mathematics' and 'Standard Mathematics', CBSE Board has streamlined the assessment process and presented it more student-centric.


The difficulty level of the Mathematics-Standard examination will be the same as the existing exam and the Mathematics Basic question paper will be simple in comparison. This doesn't mean that students would take separate classes. All students, irrespective of their decision to appear in Basic Mathematics or Standard Mathematics, will take the same classes and study the same chapters or topics.


Students who choose for Mathematics-Standard and fail in the CBSE board examination will be allowed to appear in the compartment exam for Mathematics Basic or Mathematics Standard. Students choosing for Mathematics-Basic can appear in the compartment exam just for the Basic level. In case a student chooses for Mathematics Basic and passes in the exam but change their mind later and want to pursue maths at a higher level, they will be permitted to appear for Maths-Standard compartment exam.


CBSE recently released the sample papers and marking scheme for the upcoming board examinations. Class 10 students can check the sample paper for Basic Maths as well as Standard Maths to get a better idea of the difficulty level of the question paper and the changes added in the question paper. Students can download the sample question paper form the direct links provided here.
