Problems in taking basic Maths as an Option

To help students and parents we list the problems that students may face if they choose basic mathematics as an option. Besides this, the curriculum of both versions of mathematics will remain the same. All schools will continue to teach the same curriculum for mathematics. However, the level of question paper will be simpler for students choosing Mathematics Basic as compared to Mathematics standard. This means that students who want to discontinue mathematics in senior secondary classes can opt for basic level examination for mathematics and they will have to face comparatively simple paper in the examination.

Although CBSE has clarified most of the questions, there are some concerns related to it. Teachers suspect that students who opt for basic mathematics may face problems if they want to replace the board during Class 11 admissions.

The CBSE hasn’t released any official announcement regarding this. Schools have reported that with other boards demanding an inquiry regarding the validity of basic mathematics, no explanation was offered.

On the other hand, students who choose Basic Mathematics will be able to continue and carry computers in classes 11 and 12. Students who take Basic Mathematics, if change their mind also have an option of appearing for Standard Mathematics paper with the compartment examinations conducted in July. But they have to clear the Basic Mathematics exam scheduled in February – March.
