The Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE) has recently announced that they will be allowing students to choose two examinations for mathematics. The former being of the conventional difficulty called ‘Standard Mathematics’ and the latter being a much easier paper called ‘Basic Mathematics’.
With the registrations already open most students are still confused over the choice that they have. It is, however, music to the ears of the students who were always frightened to the core by mathematics. The students who want to continue studying mathematics in higher classes (11th and 12th) must opt for standard mathematics while the ones who want to get this subject done with for good should opt for the basic mathematics option.
