GOA: The Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education has given schools extended time up to October 20 to submit details of students who want to opt for the new ‘maths 2’ option at the 2021 Class X board exam.
The board had earlier set September 30 as the deadline. Both ‘maths 1’ and ‘maths 2’ will have the same syllabus, only the difficulty level for testing will be on the lower side for ‘maths 2’. In July, the board said that students who do not want to continue studying mathematics or pursue science stream after Class X can opt for ‘maths 2’.
The board’s academic council at its meeting held in February decided to introduce ‘mathematics level 2’ at the Class X level from the academic year 2020-21. Students who want to pursue polytechnic will have to opt for level 1 as will those wanting to join ITI courses related to engineering subjects.
