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.

The other member
said: "The governing body will meet again in June when a final decision
may be taken." Currently, the board curriculum provides for a single paper
in mathematics.

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

About 15 lakh
children from nearly 20,000 CBSE-affiliated schools took the Class 10 board
exam in 2018.

Last year, the
National Council of Educational Research and Training conducted a National
Achievement Survey to assess the learning levels of pupils of Classes 3, 5 and 8
in mathematics, environment studies and language. The survey showed the children
feared mathematics the most.
