Lagging behind in Maths – says NCERT

The National Achievement Survey of NCERT — conducted across six districts, 230 schools and among 4,272 students in Delhi — revealed that Delhi students performed lower than the national average in most mathematical abilities, except for patterns and multiplication. Delhi students are at a score of 244 while the average national score is 252. In fact, among the 34 states and union territories surveyed, Delhi is among the lowest eight performers in language and lowest six in mathematics.

Astonishingly, Delhi boys gave girls a close contest with comparable scores in Maths performance and for rural and urban students, the difference is very slim. But interestingly, none of the groups could surpass national average.

Survey suggests that prime topics which students at elementary level dread the most are addition, subtraction, division, place value, measurement, geometry, money and data handling.

While at national level, average students scoring above 75% in the assessment is 39.2%, Delhi students lags behind at 33.9%. At the same time, the percentage of Delhi students who scored between 0- 35% is significantly higher (12.2%) than the national average of 8.7%.

Looking at these stats, we need to definitely take a step back and understand where schools are still lacking despite of world class technologies being used and help kids in best possible manner to ensure that a solid foundation for future is laid today

Class 10th board exams may come back – States suggest the government

The HRD ministry had a full day discussion with states on the formulation of new education policy. The states gave an overwhelming response to bring back class 10th board exams in CBSE schools and let go of no-detention policy till class 8th.

Their main concern was that they don’t fail students till class 8th and its difficult for students to pass class 9th. This consultation was attended by 2.5 lakh gram sabhas, 620 districts and 66000 blocks. States like Nagaland also raised issues of paucity of Hindi teachers in the system. This is one of the biggest steps in education policy after Radhakrishnan Commission of 1948, Kothari Commission of 1964 and Education Policy of 1986. It is though great to see that every citizen is being given a chance to express their views in the formulation of a new education policy.

I am not sure whether class 10th board exams should be brought back and should cbse schools push this. They cause immense pressure on children as well as parents regarding competition and results in cbse and other state boards. Education should be an enabler for students in their future.

Class 10th board exams if again brought back will not be fruitful for imparting education and the system as a whole. I am pretty sure that kids definitely don’t want to have board exams.

What is your stance on this ?

Should class 10th board exams be brought back in CBSE schools?

Should students till class 8th be also detained ?

CBSE summons principals regarding a tough maths paper

It is conflicting to see how CBSE is on one hand pushing for de-stress by implementing CCE but on the other hand making tough papers. This year’s mathematics paper for Class 12 has been described as one of the toughest in a decade. Keeping this in view, CBSE has called various principals to discuss the matter. The issue was also raised by Congress MP K V Thomas in zero hour of Lok Sabha which further stresses on importance of this topic.

However, various options are being worked out like having a lenient view by teachers on the solutions or having an improvement exam for Class 12 students. The first one though add some relief to all the students. The second one may seem to be a tough call as it may affect dates of entrance exams for a lot of students.

Having said this we definitely look forward to relatively easier papers for board exams from CBSE so that no additional stress is mounted on students.

Ncertsolutionsmaths wishes all class 12 students best of luck for their exam results and future endeavors.

Hurray !! Students will get extra time for SSC exams

SSC examinations will begin from March 25 with the new patter and syllabus for Secondary School Certificate exams. Taking these into consideration, students will be given 15 minutes extra so that they have sufficient time to understand and answer the question paper.

This has been confirmed by District Educational Officer K Lingaiah that the duration of examinations would be 2.45 hours instead of 2.3 hours whereas the second lanugage paper duration will be of 3.15 hours.

A tital of 63,126 students will appear for this SSC examination across 274 centers that will be managed by 274 chief superintendents and 3328 invigilators.

Silly mistakes that you can avoid in your exams

Many a times you would’ve come back and realized that you have made some silly mistakes. These silly mistakes would have cost you a good number of marks which would have improved your percentage and your rank. So, why do we make these silly mistakes and how do we avoid them ?

Here are the tips that can help you avoid them. Believe me, they work wonders.

1. Detailed reading

Most of the times we don’t read the question properly in exams. Ensure that you read each and every line very well. Just because time is running fast and you believe that you may run short of time, reading a question is the most important aspect. Most of the teachers try to take advantage of such habits and play around with questions with little twists.

 

2. Check the numbers and calculations

Most of the times, we don’t check all the numbers properly. Either we confuse between addition or subtraction signs or get the numbers or the calculations wrong. Do check each and every number and calculation properly. I suggest that you keep atleast 15 mins separately especially in a maths exam for revision.

 

3. Simplify questions and problems

Because the calculations or questions can become lengthy at times, we get confused. Simplify each problem and go step-by-step. It is important that you follow this approach especially in solving complex problems in exams. It pays a ton if you do so instead of speeding up and getting things incorrect. Also, keep all the maths formulas in check and ensure that you have used the formulas correctly.

Follow these simple tips and you will surely benefit by avoiding some of the silly mistakes in your exams. Its coming from a personal experience. We wish the best of you so that you prepare better for your exams and benefit from our simple tips. Do write to us in case of suggestions.
