CBSE Class 10 Maths Basic Sample Paper 2023-24 PDF with Important Exam Preparation Resources
CBSE Class 10 Maths Basic Sample Paper 2024: In CBSE Class 10, students are given the option to choose any one of the easier or standard versions of Mathematics. Those who wish to continue with the subject in higher secondary classes can go with the standard Maths and others who are not willing to study the subject at higher levels or are not interested in the subject, can opt to write the basic version of Maths paper. Though the curriculum suggested for both versions remains the same, the only difference is in the difficulty level of the question paper in board exams. Basic Maths will have comparatively easier questions. So, for this, students would not need to practise the complex questions or the higher-order thinking skill type questions, but they only need to be good at the basics of the subject.
