The options for the mathematics examination will be specified in the exam registration form for the class 10 board exam 2020. Candidates must note that they will be allowed to appear for only that paper which they have marked in their registration form.

And if at all these students score good marks in the basic mathematics examination and wish to pursue mathematics for class 12 examination they will have to appear for the class 10 compartmental exam which will be conducted in July next year. It must be noted that only after passing the compartmental examination will the candidate be able to take up mathematics in class 11. It is the first time that the board has offered a chance for the students to give the compartmental exam in the subject.

The syllabus will be the same while there will be changes in the difficulty level of both the papers. While the basic mathematics question paper will be easier, the standard mathematics paper will be tough and based on concepts.

The board has also advised the students to take up mathematics only if they are interested in the subject.  Those students who are not interested in the subject and who are weak in the subject have been advised to take up basic mathematics. The students who take basic mathematics will be passed in the examination by the board.
