CBSE Extends Provision for Mathematics Choice in Class 11, Allowing Students to Opt for Mathematics Based on Class 10 Selection
Relaxation for the Academic Year 2023-24 to Facilitate Students’ Choice
CBSE Latest Circular: CBSE Extends Provision to Allow Class 11 Students to Opt for Mathematics Based on Class 10 Choice
CBSE, the Central Board of Secondary Education, has recently announced an important update regarding the choice of mathematics for Class 11 students.
In a circular released on Friday, the board has extended the provision, allowing students who studied Mathematics Standard in Class 10th to opt for Mathematics in Class 11th for the academic year 2023-24.
This decision provides flexibility and options for students, ensuring their academic pursuits align with their previous choices.
CBSE Board has decided to extend the provision to allow students who studied Mathematics Standard in Class 10th to opt Mathematics in Class 11th for the academic year 2023-24.
A One-Time Measure During the COVID-19 Pandemic
As a one-time measure, CBSE relaxed the rule during the COVID-19 pandemic, taking into account the challenges and disruptions faced by students.
The circular clarifies that students who have studied Mathematics Standard (041) in Class 10 can now choose Mathematics (041) in Class 11 for the upcoming academic year.
However, students who have previously opted for Mathematics Basic (241) in Class 10 will be limited to selecting Applied Mathematics in Class 11.
CBSE Mentioned in Circular
Now, after detailed deliberations, the following has been decided by the Board for the session 2023-2024:-
As per circular no. Acad-03/2019 dated 10.01.2019, students of Class-X who have studied Mathematics Standard (041) can offer Mathematics (041) in Class-XI. In case, the students who offered Mathematics Basic (241) in Class-X are allowed to offer only Applied Mathematics in Class-XI.
This rule has again been relaxed by the CBSE for the session 2023-2024 only, thus, students who offered Mathematics Basic (241) are also allowed to offer Mathematics (041) in Class-XI.
Before permitting Mathematics (041) in Class-XI to such students, the Head of the Institution should satisfy that the students are having the aptitude and ability to pursue Mathematics (041) in Class-XI.
This exemption is being given as a special measure to facilitate the present batch i.e. 2023-2024 of students of Class-XI.
Facilitating the Present Batch of Class 11 Students
The exemption to offer Mathematics (041) in Class 11 to students who chose Mathematics Basic (241) in Class 10 has been introduced as a special measure to facilitate the current batch of Class 11 students.
CBSE aims to support these students in pursuing their academic goals and ensure they have a seamless transition in their mathematics education.
Earlier Introduction to Two-Level Mathematics
In 2019, CBSE introduced a two-level mathematics system for the All India Secondary School Examination, starting with the academic session and ending in March 2020.
According to the circular dated January 10, 2019 (Acad-03/2019), students who had studied Mathematics Standard (041) in Class 10 were eligible to choose Mathematics (041) in Class 11.
Conversely, students who had opted for Mathematics Basic (241) in Class 10 were limited to selecting only Applied Mathematics in Class 11.
Relaxation for the Academic Year 2023-24
In a recent circular, CBSE has relaxed the rule once again, specifically for the academic year 2023-24. This means that students who had chosen Mathematics Basic (241) in Class 10 can now opt for Mathematics (041) in Class 11.
It is important to note that this exemption applies only to the mentioned academic session.
Assessment of Aptitude and Ability by Heads of Institutions
CBSE has advised the Heads of Institutions to assess the aptitude and ability of students before granting permission to pursue Mathematics in Class 11.
This ensures that students have the necessary skills and capabilities to excel in their mathematics education.
For Further Details
Students and stakeholders can find more information and access the detailed notification on the official website of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) at cbse.gov.in.
The circular issued by CBSE clarifies the provisions and exemptions provided for the academic year 2023-24.
By extending this provision, CBSE recognizes the importance of aligning students’ academic choices and facilitating their educational journey.
The board aims to support students in pursuing their preferred level of mathematics, providing them with opportunities for growth and success.
