CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Syllabus for 2022-23

On April 21st, 2022, CBSE released a reduced syllabus for classes 9 to 12 of the 2022-23 academic session.

After so many changes in the last 2 to 3 years, CBSE has finalised a reduced syllabus for Class 10 teachers and students to follow. However, the term-based examination pattern will NOT BE FOLLOWED in 2022-23.

We were prompt about the syllabus release and have updated the changes in all the subjects for you. Here, you can find:

  • PDF download links to the latest reduced Class 10 Mathematics Syllabus for 2022-23 academic session; and
  • simple analysis of all the deleted topics/ chapters to be followed this year.
