CBSE is organising a computer based test called Ganit Challenge for all its affiliated schools to promote applying mathematics in daily life with proper reasoning and assumptions.

As per the CBSE website, applying mathematics in our daily life makes students develop  competencies required of a mathematisation. The process will make them recognize and identify opportunities to use mathematics to provide mathematical structure to a problem presented in some contextualized form. 

The challenge is open for students from classes 8 to 10. Top three students from each school will qualify for second stage. The assessment will be based on –

  • Application of Mathematics in daily life
  • Joy of Mathematics Learning
  • Mathematical Ability

The schools can register for the challenge on CBSE’s official website before 15th November. From 18th to 22nd a question paper will be made available to the registered schools with answer keys through an online link based on which they will identify the top three students. No fee is applicable to take the test.
