CBSE introduced the new maths exam pattern to make it simpler for the students who do not wish to pursue mathematics in their higher secondary level. Students appearing for the basic maths exam will not be able to take up mathematics in class 11. They would have to appear for the class 10 mathematics (Standard) compartmental examination if they plan to take up maths in class 11.
