Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) an autonomous organization under the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development; Govt. of India, is considering to introduce two mathematics papers in the Class 10 board examinations from the academic year 2019-20.
The premier national board's governing body on Monday discussed the proposal. Under the plan, there may be a "basic paper" for everyone and a "standard paper" for those keen to join the science stream in Classes 9 and 12, two governing body members said.
"Only those who clear the `standard paper' will be able to study mathematics in Class 11. So, would-be science students will have to clear the `standard paper'," one of the members said.

There's no plan to have two papers in any other subject, the two governing body members said.
