## FAQs on ICSE Previous Year Question Paper for Class 10 Mathematics

**1. Can Students Score Better in Maths if they Refer to Vedantu’s ICSE Maths Paper 2019 Solutions?**

The Mathematics 2019 solutions will help you with your preparations. You will be able to clear your fundamentals with help of questions and simplified answers. However, along with these solutions, one should also clear the basic concepts from the textbook and be thorough with the syllabus. The more important chapters should be given more attention. The other previous year’s question papers can also be found on the site, students should attempt to solve them. Lastly, a proper study schedule is a key to achieving great scores, especially in math since it requires practice.

**2. How Important is Trigonometry in Class 10?**

Trigonometry is one of the important topics in Class 10 Mathematics. It is marked fetching in both terms. The bulk of the topic is covered in the first term and maximum questions are asked. The rest is taught in the second term. It is relatively easier than other topics. Simple algebraic trigonometric expressions are asked to be proved using identities. Other problems involving angles of elevation and depression are to be solved using the trigonometric table. These are problems involving heights and distances.

**3. How many hours are students expected to study Math every day?**

While every student has his/her own different capability and ability to grasp, apply and retain information, about 2 hours is the minimum they must give for studying Math every day during their preparation. The syllabus is vast with numerous theorems, derivations, important formulae and anyone hoping to score a nearly perfect score in Mathematics must provide that much time to studying Math. It is recommended to study Algebra and Geometry on alternate days of the week. Occasional breaks and breathers are fine, so long as they don’t make one lazy.

**4. Should students be worried if they are not scoring as expected in the solved papers?**

Of the various reasons we solve previous years’ papers for, it is just so that the student puts his skills to the test and understands the minute details one must take care of while appearing for the main exam. At the end of the day, the solved papers are just for self-analysis and not for one to get discouraged. Remember that you’re still preparing, and conscious efforts will almost guarantee a better score in the final exam than in the mock tests.

**5. Is it okay if students don’t follow the specific method of solving given in the textbook or as taught by their teacher?**

Apart from theorems, their proofs, and certain derivations, there isn’t much of a restriction as to the route the student must take to reach the final solution. Various third-party books offer different ways to solve the same problem, and students are free to use the method they are most comfortable with unless a particular method is explicitly mentioned in the question. The step-marking criteria are mostly taken into consideration when a particular method is mentioned in the question. If it is not, then whatever method students use is accepted and also, marked justly.
