December 06, 2021

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducted the CBSE Class 10 mathematics exam 2021 on December 4 for basic and standard. Most students found the question paper lengthy and moderately difficult.

The CBSE Class 10 maths term 1 exam 2021 had three sections - Section A, B, C. Students had to attend 16 questions out of 20 respectively in Section A and B, while in section C 8 questions out of 10 had to be answered. Students must note that there is no negative marking for Class 10 term 1 exam 2021.

Most of the students found the standard paper to be lengthy, though many could finish the paper exactly on time. Overall, the paper was rated challenging by the candidates. Meanwhile, the basic mathematics paper was well balanced. The majority of the questions were easy. However, case study-based questions and questions from Coordinate Geometry were tricky.

The majority of the questions in the paper were based only on the topics mentioned in the term-1 CBSE syllabus. However, 2 questions in the standard paper were based on trigonometric identities which were from the deleted section of the syllabus.

The questions tested students’ knowledge, understanding of the concepts, retention capabilities, recapitulation, logical reasoning, analytical thinking, and higher-order thinking skills. The paper was challenging which required students to think a lot.
