Frequently Asked Questions



What are Class 10 NCERT Exemplars?
While getting good scores in school tests is a desirable outcome, it is not a reliable indicator of how strong your child’s math foundation really is. Many students who score well in school exams in their earlier years, might struggle with math in higher grades because of a weak foundation. At Cuemath, we evaluate your child’s grasp of math fundamentals, and take corrective actions immediately. Also, your child may have limited exposure in their school, and in most cases, may not feel challenged to learn more. Cuemath's customised learning plan ensures your child is challenged with varied difficulty levels of questions at every stage.
