Therefore, before students actually take the exam, they must have an idea of the exam pattern so that they may prepare accordingly and write a perfect exam to score optimum marks.
Here, we are providing the latest examination pattern for CBSE Class 9 Mathematics, to give a preview of the exam structure that students will see in the CBSE class 9 annual exams 2018.
CBSE Class 9 Mathematics Examination Pattern is as follows:
This year CBSE class 9 Mathematics question paper will be conducted for 80 marks covering 100% syllabus. The remaining 20 marks are alloted to internal assessment (IA) which will be added while calculating the overall grade.
Internal Assessment will comprise of:
While preparing for the Mathematics exam, students should know the worth of each unit.
